I Had Experienced A Loss Of Brakes On Three Or Four Different Occasions. I Brought Vehicle To Manufactures service Represenative. I Explained I Loss My Brakes For A Short Momment And Then They Return. With The Most Recent Occurance The Abs Light Came On. This Did Not Happen In Previous Incidences. They Checked The Abs System Found No Errors, They Checked The Brakes No Problems. They Couldn’t Find Anything, I Had To Speek With The service Tech Directly Giving More Of A Detail Of What Happens. They Came Back And Found The Master Brake Cylinder Was Leaking Causing The Intermittent (extremely Random) Failure. They Charged Me For The Repair (no Problem). I Called ford Motor Direct And Asked To Be Refunded My Repair Cost Because I Did’nt Think A Master Brake Cyclinder Should Be Failing @ 38k. They Were Very Professional And Had No Objections, They Agreed Totally (they Paid Me For The Repair). A Week Later, This Morning I Almost Crashed Into A Semi. The End Of My Road Has A Stop Sign Conecting To A Major Highway. When I Proceeded To Use My Brakes To Stop The Vehicle Did Not Stop! The Brake Problem Was Back. This Incident Was The Worst Of The Brake Failures, I Literally Almost Got Crushed By The Semidid. I Called The Manufactures service Rep. They Told Me They Thought They Had The Fix With Master Cycliner, Obviously It Was Not The Fix. I Asked What They Thought It Could Be They Had No Clue! I Have An Appointment This Monday With The Shop To See If They Can Find The Cause One More Time. I Stress, This Problem Is Extremely Dangerous. When One Losses His Brakes You Loss Total Control. I Hope This Information Can Help Save A Life Some Where. Thank You

Once The Engine Is Started, The Vehicle Will Not Move From Park To Any Other Gear. There Is An Override Procedure But It Is Inconvenient. When I Took The Vehicle To A Dealer For Repair, They Told Me ford Had Put A Stop On Supplying The Cruise Control Brake Switch. So It Is Not Possible To Get This Repaired Until ford Replaces The Part With One Not Defective. As A Safety Precaution, They Removed The Electrical Connection To Avoid Fires At Or Around The Brake Fluid Reservoir. However, Brake Fluid Is Leaking From The Part And Dripping. In The Past Month I Have Had To Refill The Brake Fluid Reservoir Twice. I Am Concerned That The Brakes Will Not Function Unless The Part Is Replaced. The Delimma Seems To Be ford Will Not Allow The Part To Be Replaced And Yet They Do Not Offer An Alternative.
