1998 Chrysler Town & Country Owner Comments

Town & Country 6-cyl

I purchased this van Dec 2010. I was coming home from work at 9pm driving on the interstate and the brake pedal went all the way to the floor - no brakes. Next day I took to shop and was told all the lines were rusted and needed replaced. I had all new brake lines installed front to back by a repair shop in March 2011. Once again, I had the same exact problem today, just over a year- except the lines were not rusted. 08/21/2012 - driving on a state road going about 40 mph coming to a stop light slowing down, suddenly the brake pedal went all the way to the floor. No brakes. Fluid was gushing out by the rear tire. I pulled to gas station and the fluid was leaking/dripping out. The more the brake pedal was pushed the more fluid was forced out. I could have been in an accident even killed. Lucky for me it was 1 pm in the afternoon. I moved from Indiana 6/1/2011 to Florida. The van now has 180,000 miles.
