Complaint - Service Brakes

SUDDEN COMPLETE BREAK FAILURE. WITHOUT ANY PREVIOUS BREAKING PROBLEM OR INDICATION OF BREAKING SYSTEM PROBLEM THE BREAKING SYSTEM COMPLETELY FAILED UNDER NORMAL DRIVING CONDITIONS WHILE THE VEHICLE WAS DECELERATING WITH NO PRESSURE ON THE GAS PEDAL. I WAS A FEW HUNDRED YARDS FROM A RED LIGHT AND ATTEMPTED TO APPLY GENTLE BRAKE PRESSURE, THE BREAK PEDAL GAVE NO RESISTANCE, EASILY PUSHED TO THE FLOOR WITH NO BREAKING CAPACITY WHATSOEVER. THE BREAK TROUBLE LIGHT CAME ON AT THE SAME INSTANT FAILURE OCCURRED. RELEASING AND REAPPLYING THE BREAKS HAD NO EFFECT, ONLY DUE TO MY EARLY RESPONSE TO THE RED LIGHT ALLOWED ME ENOUGH TIME AND DISTANCE TO USE THE COLUMN SHIFTER TO DOWNSHIFT, THUS DECELERATING WITH THE ENGINE UNTIL REACHING 1ST GEAR. AT WHICH POINT I WAS ABLE TO USE THE PARKING BREAK TO FULLY STOP THE VEHICLE.
