Report: Premature failure of the Brake Master Cylinder
Ford Escape Problem
Model Year Affected: 2001
Visitor, 2001 Ford Escape, 130,000 mi
Had to have brake master cylinder replaced 10 years and 12 years (130k) after purchase of car.
Brakes have been a continued challenge with this vehicle. I have replaced master cylinder 3 times so far. 1st @ 91k (after market) 2nd @ 95K (Genuine Ford). So far so good.
