1. I observered on 3 occassions intermittent low speed braking problems. I took the vehicle to the dealer on 23may05 and they found nothing wrong. 2. while parked and idling the vehicle on 11jun05, there was a loud bang noise from under the hood. A part of the braking sytem from under the hood looks like it seperated under pressure from the rest of the master cylinder. This resulted in loss off most brake fluid. 3. vehicle was towed to shop, but repairs will not commence till 13jun05.
