A "clunking" noise was coming from the rear of the vehicle during application of brakes. Dealership examined vehicle and determined brake drums were not rounded and had to be replaced. Four days later, vehicle was involved in a crash when brake pedal went to the floor before brake system activated. Crash occurred on December 5, 2001 when vehicle rear-ended a stopped car while traveling approximately 15 to 20 mph.
