When driving my car, typically at lower speeds, I have experienced extreme loss of pressure in my brake system. I have a full tank of brake fluid but I still have to press my brake pedal all the way to the floor at times to slow down my car and hope it comes to a stop. I have experienced this occurrence 10-15 times to date starting about 3 months ago. My car has 138,883 miles on it at the time of writing this. I am sometimes worried that I will not be able to stop. This has occurred on city streets, parking lots and highways. And at various speeds, mostly lower speeds, but it has occurred as high as 60 mph.

2006 Ford Fusion. ABS engaged when having to brake suddenly on ice. The brake pedal went all the way to the floor and was soft after that, going almost to the floor before brakes would engage. Took the car to the nearest Ford garage and was told the hcu was probably out and would cost $2000 to fix it. I told them I needed to think about it. They called back later and said they bled the brakes and that fixed the problem so no repair was done. The brakes did the same thing a few months later when braking hard to avoid hitting a car which had pulled out in front of me. After reading comments online, I fixed the issue by driving at 25 mph in a parking lot and then slamming on the brakes. The brakes work normally after that. I'm sure this is only a temporary fix and I know the model years 2007 - 2009 are being investigated for this issue. Just wanted to add my experiences with my 2006 Ford Fusion that I have owned since 2006.

Brake pedal, sometimes, would give, at times going to floor stop, while slowing and or turning on rough intersection areas and exits. My wife told me about this for ~6 months. When I would test drive the Fusion, the brakes worked fine. The Fusion was repaired at bolton Ford, lake charles, la. On Aug. 16, 2016 (97,750 mls.) which entailed changing the mastercylinder and fluid flush. Trouble shooting the issue, I replaced all the brake pads and checked for leaks, fluid level, all looked normal. Next my local auto repair shop, checked brakes, for my wife said problem still there. Then to Ford dealership.
