Vehicle has been in 5-6 times for brakes. When applying brakes they grab/ release/ catch and lock up. Dealer knows there is a leak but can't find it. They have scheduled appointments for 2 dates, and haven't showed up. When applied, brakes will suddenly release, when the brakes do grab, they lock causing vehicle to skid, constant loss of fluid in the master cylinder. Replaced clockspring due to popping noise in steering wheel.
