NISSAN ALTIMA Service Brakes problems : 3.
When Driving Speeds As Low As 25 Miles Per Hour, The Brakes Started To Grab. I First Noticed That When I Depressed The Brake, When Released, The Pedal Seemed To Stick, As If There Were Gum On The Bottom Of My Shoe, Perhaps Sticking To The Pedal. I Checked The Pedal And It Was Clear. Then I Noticed That When Driving At Slower Rates Of Speed, As I Eased On The Brake, It Seemed To Depress Again, Then The Brakes Would Grab Harder. Took It To The Dealer, They Said It Was The Brake Booster–$700 Estimate To Fix. I Did Not Have An Extended Warranty, So I Took It To A Private Mechanic, Who Evaluated The Issue, And Came To The Same Conclusion–brake Booster. He Showed Me That It Was Busted. He Was Considerably Cheaper, So I Had Him To Fix The Brake Booster. It Fixed The Issue That I Was Feeling In The Pedal When Stopping, However, The Brakes Continued To Grab, Even At Slower Rates Of Speed (<25mph). At Slower Speeds, The Brakes Grabbed Hard Enough To Throw Passengers Forward In The Vehicle. He Contacted nissan And Found That There Was A Recall For My Master Cylinder, But Only If It Was Leaking. My Master Cylinder Did Not Appear To Be Leaking, But It Is Quite Obvious That It Has To Be A Faulty Cylinder. I Read Several Reports Of nissan‘s Master Cylinders Leaking Causing The Brake Booster To Fail. The nissan Dealership In Jonesboro Said That They Would Replace The Master Cylinder, But The Recall Is For Leaking Master Cylinders Only. My Mc Is Not Leaking, And Therefore, As It Stands Right Now, It Is Not Covered By The Recall. *tr
