 Description of the problemF-150 barely stops from hitting a crv in front of it. As soon as i saw him apply his brakes i slammed on mine. The brakes did not seem to help to slow escape's speed. Went under f150's bumper and was bounced back at least a car length and a half (have pictures). The front was cruppled and airbags did not deploy. I was told by ford they found nothing wrong with breaking system but i know what it felt like. Maybe systems were working according to their computer but i know if i had been in my 1996 explorer it would have stopped.*ak
