 Description of the problemBraking ability went to 0% while driving; accompanied by a "brake fluid is low" dashboard indicator light (dashboard lamp became lit after braking applied ). When brakes were applied there was 0% available to slow/stop the vehicle (in heavy traffic). Driver was able to avoid a crowded intersection and a red light to my vehicle traffic direction (red light to me) by applying the parking brake and a survivable distance between me and the traffic in my 4 (traveling in an easterly direction) lanes. Upon turning onto a residential street near my home, i was able to creep (<5mph) home. I added dot 4 brake fluid (from a newly opened bottle) and filled the master cylinder to just below the "max" line on the reservoir. In the morning you couldn't gauge my shock, when to my surprise the master cylinder was completely empty and devoid of any brake fluid. Not only that! But there was no evidence of leakage on the ground. I have a painted driveway and there was no forensic evidence of any kind of vehicle fluid leaks. I was aghast! I have several of my neighbors come over as they saw me attending to my vehicle. We all had flashlights and were scouring the vehicle looking for any evidence of brake fluid. There simply was none! I had my vehicle towed to my ford dealer and awaited a diagnosis. Turns out it was a faulty master cylinder in combination with a brake booster that drinks brake fluid when it can get it. Together they are a potentially lethal combination not to mention a costly pair to repair. If there ever was a reason for a recall it would be to remedy this liability waiting to happen onto ford motor company. I simply cannot fathom why no action has been taken and hence the reason i am complaining. I seek to get some satisfaction from fomoco on this issue before someone of their trusting, buying public becomes a tragedy of this simple fix. It is unconscionable! Act now!

  • What is Recall?

    A recall is when a product is removed from the market or a correction is made to the product because it is either defective or potentially harmful.
  • What is Failure?

    Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success. Product failure ranges from failure to sell the product to fracture of the product, in the worst cases leading to personal injury, the province of forensic engineering.

    Non-conformance of a car component with the specified requirements, or non-fulfillment of user expectations, including the safety aspects.
