1996 Chrysler Concorde Owner Comments

problem #11

: the contact stated while the vehicle slowed to a stop, the brakes began to vibrate and the pedal depressed to the floor. At 5 mph the ABS engaged and stopped the vehicle. The problem was intermittent and occurred 40 times in the last two years. The manufacturer was contacted and referred the contact to a service dealer. An independent service mechanic inspected the vehicle and also determined, the brakes needed to be serviced by an authorized dealer. The ABS engage at a low speed for no apparent reason.

The brake pedal travels to the floor when the engine starts up, the ABS system responds only after the brake pedal is on the floor, the master cylinder was replaced but this condition still exist. Nlm

Continuing lack of braking "power" I.e. pedal is on the floor and there is not enough braking force generated to cuase the anti-lock brakes to actuate, even on wet pavement, causing longer stopping distances and some real tense moments. Deale has tried replacing several components with no result and I'm getting worried that evntually ther will be an accident caused by lack of braking ability in what should have been a no-problem, routine stop. There have been other complaints from other Chrysler owners showning same behavior- these appear in Chrysler lhs's and new yorkers which are essentially the same vehicles under the skin.
