I was stooped at a red light on a hill when the light turned green all lights in car turned on the brakes went out and the steering wheel locked. I was on a hill and almost crashed into a wall. I had no control over the car. Don't know how this happened. I was able to mange and pull to the side of the curve. I turned the car on and off a few times and the car went back to normal. I was very lucky i didn't crash into the wall or another car. This was at a busy intersection and i could have kiiled myself or and someone else. I have not driven the car since only my husband because im very scared. Today the malfunction light come on and we don't know if this is related. We called chrysler and explained the situation but they can only schedule an appointment to see the car on 5/17/2021. This is a very serious issue and im surprised they wont see the car right away. And told us to wait another 5 days. I don't trust this car until it gets checked.

No brakes. Took to ford. Does not fall under current recall of nhtsa campaign number 20v-332. However my ford dealer is charging me to replace the same exact parts under the recall. Brake booster pump and brake master cylinder. Exactly what happened. No brakes. Brake fluid low. Added more brake fluid, not leaking under truck. Emergency brake still works. Had it towed to ford 2 weeks ago. They are not returning my call. They did tell me they had to order brake booster pump, brake master cylinder and flush the brake lines. $3000 repair. Odd that this is the same repair under the recall.

A non-conductive pad is installed between the brake sensor switch and brake arm. The pad becomes brittle over time and breaks allowing the brake sensor to engage. This causes the car to go into? Limp? Mode which can occur while driving on highways. This is a safety issue since it occurs randomly and can happen at high speeds.

The brakes grab hard. The pedal goes down a little and then the brakes seem to lock up. We bought the car with 2 miles on it the same day it was delivered to the dealership. Immediately it was apparent there was a problem. They told us to drive it a while and it would go away. It has not. 2 weeks later i told them again. We have told them about the problem 4 times and they say no one else has complained with that problem. It has almost 35,000 miles on it and they say it will cost me to fix it, assuming they can find out what the problem is. H e l p!!!!

It is an ongoing issue and that happens intermittently. When arriving to a stop (at times) the car still advances forward about a foot, even when the brake pedal is being used as far as it can. Also the vehicle claims to be losing propulsion, often, and seems strained when operating when the message appears.

It was taken to schlossman honda and no problems could be found. American honda has since asked us to sign a consent form to collect the radar and camera for study.

RECENTLY REPLACED THE ROTORS AND PADS ON ALL FOUR WHEELS OF MY Outlander. ALL BUT THE REAR PASSENGER ARE WORKING FINE, WHILE THE REAR PASSENGER SIDE IS MAKING A GRINDING NOISE. WE?VE REPLACED THE BRAKE PADS 3 TIMES, REPLACED THE ROTOR ONCE, AND EVEN REPLACED THE WHOLE CALIPER; IT?S STILL MAKING A GRINDING SOUND. THERE?S A RECALL POSTED FOR SOME 2016 OUTLANDERS FOR THE PARKING BRAKE NOT ENGAGING/DISENGAGING PROPERLY AND WE MIGHT THINK THIS IS THE PROBLEM; HOWEVER, THIS RECALL IS NOT APPLIED TO OUR 2016 OUTLANDER. I THINK WE ARE HAVING THE EXACT PROBLEM THAT IS LISTED ON THIS RECALL.
