Name: Brian H

Make: 2002 Impreza WRX Wagon

Mileage: 36,150

Time Out Of Use: None

Problem And Likely Cause: ABS came on unexpectedly in conditions where it should not have - traveling aroud 30mph. Peddle dropped about an inch, braking was seriously diminished - felt like they were gone. Not sure on cause.

Modifications: Only difference from stock are the Toyo Proxes 4 tires - about 2,500 miles on them.

Submitted For Warranty Work (Yes/No): No.

Reason Given For Denial: N/A

Your Story: ABS came on - braking power was basically gone. This was particularly bad because I was going towards a red light and went I expected to begin braking, the brakes felt like they suddenly did not work. I let up on the brakes and tried again, and they worked. This has happened before (railroad tracks, metal grating in roadway), but never as I as headed towards the back of a car. In the right conditions, this could easily cause someone to rear end somebody or worse, run over someone in a crosswalk.
