Stop!

I can stop normally again...

My 1996 Honda has been acting up recently with the brake system. The other day when I stopped at a red light, the car decided to move forward after a while despite brake pedal being firmly pushed to the floor. It had been a year since I encountered this brake pressure loss problem -- the last time the car did something like this, Brakes Plus couldn't figure out what was wrong since they couldn't reproduce it. The problem had gone away and then I had thought it was just a temporary issue... until it surfaced again recently. It seems to happen around the hottest days of the summer!

Fortunately the recurring issue did not result in anything other than scaring my lunch passengers. ;)

This morning we took the car in for repair at the local Honda dealer. Wife had scheduled appointment for Monday but we decided to take it in on Saturday morning to leave the car there anyways... Honda found time to identify and fix the problem by 4:30pm, 30 minutes before closing!

As some have suspected, Honda dealer confirmed the loss of brake pressure was caused by master cylinder leak. It costs ~$350 for the master cylinder replacement/labor.
