: the contact stated intermittently the vehicle coasts through intersections while the brake pedal is depressed. Also, the brake pedal has collapsed to the floor on other occasions. In addition, the ABS activates on dry pavement. When the vehicle was taken to the dealership for the ABS, they replaced the control valve which caused the brake pedal to have more movement. The master cylinder was also replaced, but this did not remedy the problem. The contact feels it should be a recall issue. Wisconsin state attorney general is working to get Wisconsin included in 14 state recall list. Updated on 06/01/2006.

When contact comes to a yield sign transmission jerks before going into gear. Later he was told this was a brake problem. When approaching a hill/downhill and applying brakes they lock and car slides. Dozens of times check brake, service 4 wheel drive lights have come on. Contact has taken vehicle to dealer over 12 times since it has been purchased. Due service lights, brakes and transmission. Consistently told by dealer that nothing is wrong. But dealer aknowledges check brake lights have come on. Dealer states that if computer diagnostic does not produce an error code, then there is nothing they can do.
