Escape 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Brake "idiot" light on dashboard lit.. out of brake fluid.. dealer stated defective brake fluid reservoir cap - replaced - questioned why it was out of fluid when the fluids were supposed to have been "checked and topped off" at last oil change 3K miles previously - (I had also reported grinding brakes noise at that oil change which I was told was just due to excessive brake dust buildup.. )
