having owned maney cars and trucks since 1965 i feel these brakes are the worse ones i have owned to date and feel that they were resonsible for the accident.the brakes require too much foot pressure to apply. i have driven other chrysler vans, and feel it is the 1996 and above model year that have the greatly increased foot pressure requirments to stop. it seems like the vacuum booster is too small. the 1994 dodge minivan we vanpool to work in has far better brakes in terms of brake power to foot pressure response. i have driven several different ones at the dealers and it seems to just be the late models that are efected. it requires too much foot pressure for a small person during a panic stop. regular braking seems to be ok, but i would prefer a lighter pedal. *ak

after having complete brake service by independent car repair shop, then continuing to experience poor braking, took to dealer listed. diagnostics showed "no problem" and tech drove and said brakes were fine. we continue to have poor braking to point that pedal in depressed to stop yet van keeps rolling(and abs does not activate). worse when van is loaded or pulling the boat. frightening to not be able to quickly stop as was the case previously and certainly not like any of our other vehicles. there has been an abs recall on our model and i suspect something is wrong and the dealer evidently doesn't have the ability to detect it. i believe this to be a major safety issue that needs another evaluation from someone with more expertise before an accident occurs.

the products i am reporting apply braking on a towed vehicle against the manufacturers intended power brake design. extreme pressure is applied to a "dead" pedal, because the vehicle is not running to activate the power assist for braking while the vehicle is towed. i am concerned, because there have been reports of firewall failure, due to the repetitive high-pressure application of the brakes with this type device. since many thousands of these systems are in use, it is of concern that vehicles using this type system are unsafe for resale. owners may or may not know they have weakened the firewall of the vehicle by using an extreme brake pedal pressure device while towing. are the brakes of a vehicle designed to work with the power assist inactive for long periods of time, without causing structural damage to the vehicle braking components? is this not meant to be an emergency application measure only? should the seller of a vehicle using this type extreme pressure method tell the prospective buyer that the vehicle has used a device like this, which causes structural stresses way beyond the original manufacturers intended use? there are thousands of drivers using devices like this, manufactured by several companies in the rv industry. because there is no regulation for the braking of a vehicle towed with four wheels down, many drivers are left to use what is presented to them by aftermarket manufacturers. these extreme pressure products are not safe or sensible. it is very important for consumer safety, to evaluate the current products in this industry, before more vehicles become damaged structurally. there are tens of thousands of vehicles towed in this manner with no provision for stopping a towed vehicle if the vehicle separates from the towing vehicle. many deaths and injury have already occurred from lost vehicles that are not equipped as trailers are, to stop if separated from the towing vehicle or stop in a safe distance. safety is not an accident!

my chrysler 300m loses its power brakes whenever it is cold and it seems damp out side. the power brake booster seems to be the problem. when the car warms up it works good enough to drive but the brakes are still sluggish. after driving the car for 15 min to half hour the brake booster seems to start working ok. it has done this since i bought the car. i have no braking when the car is cold sometimes! and a loud sucking sound comes out of the brake booster when its hanging up. *jb
