All Complaints

1. EVENTS LEADING UP TO FAILURE: MODERATE BRAKING (~0.2 - 0.4 G) AT MODERATE SPEED (~20 MPH) WHILE DRIVING OVER CHOPPY PAVEMENT SUCH AS MIGHT EXIST WHERE ROAD WORK IS BEING DONE. 2. FAILURE: AS THE CAR PASSES OVER THE CHOPPY PAVEMENT, BRAKING FORCE DECLINES SHARPLY WITHOUT A CHANGE IN BRAKE PEDAL PRESSURE. THE CONSEQUENCE OF THIS IS THAT THE CAR STOPS FARTHER DOWN THE ROAD THAN EXPECTED DESPITE REFLEXIVE INCREASED BRAKE PRESSURE ON MY PART. THIS HAS HAPPENED THREE TIMES IN 7500 MILES OF VERY MODERATE DRIVING. SO FAR I HAVE NOT HAD A COLLISION OR OTHER ACCIDENT FROM THIS UNEXPECTED BEHAVIOR. I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED THIS BEHAVIOR IN ANY OTHER CAR INCLUDING DOZENS OF RENTAL CARS. 3. WHAT WAS DONE TO CORRECT THE FAILURE. NOTHING.
