Brake failure. After 36 months of leasing a 2002 Lincoln Ls, my wife and I purchased the vehicle with it having approximately 28,000 miles in September 2005. In December of that year with less than 30,000 miles, my wife had a minor traffic accident when while braking the car failed to stop. The brakes had been serviced in August for a squeal. There was no excessive wear but the rotors were re-surfaced. Prior to this incident there had been no other braking problems.
