  • 81,000 miles
After ABS activation on a snowy road, break pedal needs much longer travel to engage brakes than before the ABS went off. Pedal feels spongy and requires much greater distance before the brakes feel like they begin to apply. Multiple ABS stops, 100 mile of travel and a day of not driving it have not made the problem any better. Car is 2009 Mkz with 81000 miles.
