Upon applying force to the brake pedal to make a sudden stop on wet pavement the pedal traveled to the floorboard, causing extended stopping distance. Also, the anti- lock brakes locked up, resulting in the vehicle skidding. Consumer has contacted the dealer, dealer has also replaced master cylinder.
