Brake pedal went to floor, then lifted pedal, then I had brakes, I shouldn't have to pump my brakes to stop my vehicle, service center replaced front rotors, pads, and rear rotors and pads, bleed the system, this lasted all but 3 days and it happened again, what gives with Ford, Mercury brake issues......?

problem #1

Mountaineer 4WD 6-cyl

  • 36,000 miles
On December of 2007, I drove into my garage at a slow speed. I applied the brakes to be able to park the SUV. The car would not stop until it hit the inner wall of the house. The air bag did not go off after the impact.. took the car in after repair to front of car was done. The dealer's service department could not find anything wrong. 01/10/08 on June 17, 2008, my husband was parking the car to let me out to go to the doctor's office, the SUV would not stop until my husband put the SUV in park and shut the engine off.
