2013 Lincoln MKX - SERVICE BRAKES Failure Complaint (#b0b00a)

2013 Lincoln MKX

  • Date of Incident: Mar-04, 2024
  • Date complaint filed: Mar-25, 2024
  • Failed components: SERVICE BRAKES

Our car has been having issues with the breaks. At random times the break peddle gets very spongy and has to be pushed to the floor before the brakes will activate. The reduced break pressure has caused near crashes as the vehicle does not slow down when the breaks are pushed until the pedal is pushed to the floor. We took the car into a lincoln dealership and they spent a day looking at the vehicle. The mechanic informed us that the vehicle has a faulty abs pump and that the part needs to be replaced to remedy the brake issue. We were told by the lincoln dealer that the part is on back order and that this part is known to fail on our year and model of car.
