    2015 WRX Break Issues

    Has anyone had any issues with their brakes on the 2015 WRX? Mine is brand new and the brake pedal went to the floor Sunday and I rear ended a car.

    I would have the brake system completely inspected as if that was what happened then they should find some sort of leak. I would then talk to your insurance company about what steps to take if it was a manufacturer defect that caused your new car to fail and hit the person in front of you. To this point, I have not heard of any brake issues with the 2015 WRX's.

    brand* brake* pedal*

    I'm really sorry to hear this happened to you, but I haven't yet heard of the issue. If the pedal went to the floor, something would've had to break I'm assuming, but that seems highly unlikely. Brake systems are one of the most researched and developed things on a vehicle because they literally keep you from dying every time you press them. Do you know if they worked again after the crash, etc? Had you had any brake service done? Any info helps.

    They worked again after yes, but still not as good. There was brake fluid on the ground after it happened.

    Sounds like you got a leak then. To the dealer with it.
    And please, both my and everyone else's OCD is kicking in big time, it's spelled BRAKE.

    If they worked after the crash it sounds like a brake line mayve ruptured, causing a sudden loss in pressure, but not enough for them to completely lose all capability. The pads mayve become covered in brake fluid causing loss of friction.
