Re: What's the scariest car failure you've had while driving?
Following the thread of "post maintenance" issues, I picked up the car from a dealer, and had a moment at the first attempt of braking, when the pedal went to the floor, and no stopping. Two pumps later, the new shoes were in contact with the drums, and everything stopped with a squeal (I was still jumping on the pedal!).
Went back, had words, not impressed, have never had brakes serviced by anyone else since.
Currently in Tolak's garage:
2001 Laguna II 1.9 dCi Dynamique, 1993 Clio Williams, (1999 SLK230, now gone), 2007 A4 cabriolet
