SERVICE BRAKES

6/30/2016 - PITTSBURGH, PA
I WAS DRIVING OUT OF A MOUNTAINOUS ROAD AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, NO WARNING LIGHTS, NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS, NOTHING, THE POWER BRAKES WENT. I WAS ABLE TO STOP BY USING THE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM WITH BOTH FEET TROMPING DOWN ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. I HAVE TAKEN MY CAR TO THE FORD DEALER AND THEY SAID THAT IT WAS THE VACUUM POWER ASSIST CONTRAPTION THAT WAS DEFECTIVE. I HAVEN'T GOTTEN MY CAR BACK (9 DAYS NOW) BECAUSE THEY ARE SAYING THAT THE ENGINE DOES NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY NOW AND THAT IS ISN'T THE 'FAULT' OF THE VACUUM POWER ASSIST DEVICE MALFUNCTIONING.
