  1. Having brake issues that can’t be fixed on my 2009 Ford Escape. Brakes go all the way to the floor before working. Had the master cylinder replaced, and it didn’t fix the problem. Why hasn’t there been a recall?

  2. I have the same problem with my 2009 Ford Escape. I have replaced the entire breaking system including the ABS module and pump. Cost me $3000 plus. Still at dealer not yet fixed hope to have it back soon.

    1. I’m having the same problem with my Ford Escape. It’s been at the Dealership for 3 weeks and still not fixed. They are recommending the HCU replaced (Master cylinder and brake booster just replaced and didn’t help), but I can’t sink more money into it only to find out that won’t fix the car. I contacted Ford and they said there are no recalls on the brakes for 2009, and I said there should be!
      Please let me know what happened with your vehicle.

  4. Same issues on 2009 Escape XLT. Purchased in Dec 20. Brakes were ‘mushy’ according to previous owner who had spent over $1000 in new parts (pad, shoes, rotors, master cylinder, wheel cylinders. etc). I found that the issue was 1 or more of the 4 normally-closed brake solenoids ABS unit that had not re-seated properly AFTER an ABS event. Replaced the ABS unit with a low-mileage used unit. Kept the original ECU that is keyed to the vehicles VIN. Now 12 months later, the ECU has completely failed. Was sporadic for about 60 days but now failure code B1342 is locked in. Defective ECU. Ford says “Never heard of an ABS problem”. Typical service department response but in the case of defective brakes, criminally irresponsible. Ford will gladly install a new ABS unit for approx $1000. Lesson to be learned here. Stay away from unreliable (and unresponsive) manufacturers.
