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.

This happened after my wife braked hard. The next time she applied the brakes they went to the floor.
