Brake problems?
By JD on

Vehicle

2008 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)

Review

I have 20,000 original miles on this vehicle. I have been back to the dealer once to change pads and have rotors cut, once to "remove oxygen" from my brake fluid and a third time to be told that it was my imagination I was stepping on a pedal that felt like a marshmallow. (I almost hit a car in front of me on the way to the dealer). Ear splitting noise, poor brakes, tires are wearing ,sun visor split in half. Trading in the car for a Chevy this week. My first and last Honda.

Marshmallow brakes are caused by a valve in the brake system that has gone bad. Been there done that. Dealers will never tell you about it though...
