Complaint - Service Brakes

TRUCK IS EQUIPPED WITH AN ECO-BOOST MOTOR. UPON PUTTING TRUCK IN REVERSE AND BACKING DOWN DRIVEWAY, THE BRAKES WOULD NOT WORK TO STOP THE VEHICLE. THE PEDAL WAS HARD TO PUSH AND ACTED AS IF SOMETHING WAS STUCK UNDER PEDAL. DRIVER WENT INTO NEIGHBORS YARD AND BEFORE STRIKING THE HOUSE, PUT THE TRUCK IN PARK TO STOP. THERE WAS NO OBJECTS BEHIND PEDAL. AFTER RE-STARTING VEHICLE A FEW MINUTES LATER, BRAKES THEN WORKED AS DESIGNED. THE TRUCK WAS BROUGHT TO DEALER WERE THE ABS SYSTEM WAS BEING LOOKED AT. AFTER A WEEK OF MISS-DIAGNOSING, VEHICLE OWNER WAS TOLD TO PICK UP VEHICLE AND EXPERIENCED THE SAME ISSUE IN THE DEALER PARKING LOT AND SHOWED THE MECHANIC AND SERVICE WRITER AND THEY CONCURRED THAT THERE WAS A REAL SAFETY PROBLEM. UPON LEAVING IN RENTAL CAR, VEHICLE OWNER WITNESSED A PORTER CRASH VEHICLE INTO A PARKED CAR. IT WAS LATER DETERMINED THAT THE BRAKE BOOSTER ASSEMBLY WAS FAULTY.
