problem #15

Oct 272001

(reported on)

Astro Van

  • miles
While braking on a slick road surface or with wet disks or while hitting a bump, the anti lock brakes activate but fail to re-engage. This causes the vehicle to continue with out slowing down. If the pedal is released and re-applied sometimes you can stop the vehicle or the emergency brake can be applied. This has happened to me on several occasions and in two different 2000 Astros which have been assigned to me. In speaking to three other drivers at our office, they have experienced the same problems. In my opinion this vehicle is very dangerous to drive, especially in bad weather.

Brakes have failed and been fixed 3 times. Each incident put myself and children in the middle of an intersection unexpectedly. It has been at two different dealers 3 times. Each time we were told it was fixed. Wrong! the brakes go to the floor without any warning! we had close calls each time. Just missing other vehicles. Does someone have to be killed before this problem is resolved?
