Master cylinder, went out the second time. I had my car in the dealers shop on December 31, 2002. My master cylinder went out at 13157 miles, and the master cylinder went out again at 14252 miles (3/1/03). The car will be 2 years old in April. I am very scared to get back in the car this time, I am looking into purchasing a new car. This car is unsafe and unpredictable.

Master cylinder goes out without warning. Consumer applied brakes, and pedal went to the floor. Consumer feels very unsafe.
