Picked the Vec up yesterday from The Car People (never buy from them!) and took it for a spin like you do. Everything seemed fine until a young couple went to cross the road at the pelican crossing ahead of me.
Now normally, 40m at 40mph would be more than enough room to stop. Not this time. The pedal went straight to the floor, ABS kicked in and I stopped halfway across the crossing. Not sure who was more suprised, them or me.
After that I noticed that the break pedal goes to the floor every time I press it. When moving or stationary. Took it back to them last night and no mechanics were there, so was told I'd get a call first thing in the morning to get it booked in.
Got a call at 11am this morning (first thing I think not) to say they can't do anything until Monday, which isn't good for me as I'm working away and I'm not back 'til Wed.
I said they either get a mechanic in on OT or I'll take it Quickfit for them to look at. They said they were happy for me to take it there, but will not cover the costs to get anything repaired if I do it myself. Took it in anyway thinking it was maybe just air in the system, but the guy behind the counter said it was most probably the master cylinder at fault as they have just put new disks and pads on, so have probably pressed the pads too far back.
What would you do in my situation? Get someone else to take a look ASAP, then if they don't refund me go through small claims?
I did take out a warenty with them, however they said the breaks probably wouldn't be covered as it could be wear and tear, even though I've only done 100 miles on them
