problem #1

Jan 052008

F-150 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 148,000 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Ford F-150. While stopped at a traffic light, the brakes failed. The contact had to depress the brake pedal to the floor and apply the emergency brake in order to stop the vehicle. He discovered brake fluid leaking from the center between the rear wheels. The vehicle was towed to the mechanic and they stated that the emergency brake cable was rubbing against the normal brake line, causing the cable to fail. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer took a complaint and forward it to the proper office. The current and failure mileages were 148,000. Updated 02-14-08.
