How long since the last brake fluid change? For the first time yesterday I read the following in the service book for the Passat....
WARNING: Brake fluid service must be carried out every 2 years. If the brake fluid is left in the system for too long, heavy use of the brakes may cause a vapour lock. THIS COULD CAUSE THE BRAKES TO FAIL.
Is this just VW scaremongering, or is this a real possibility? If it is, then this might be what you have experienced.
Currently in martin999's garage:
2011 (11) VW Passat 2.0 TDi SE + options in Island Grey, 2011 (11) Honda CB1000R in Pearl Cool White... oh and a 2004 (54) Secnic II 1.5dCi Dynamique in Ottoman Blue !
