I had an accident yesterday! my brakes failed and I hit another car. I tried the brakes afterwards and they seemed ok. Have later tried and my food went to the floor, no brakes! has anyone had the same problem?

Hi, it saddens me to hear your story. Failing brakes is probably the most serious problem one can have with a car.

Do not drive it anymore until it is diagnosed and fixed!

I did once had something similar with a Mitsubishi of my other half about 10 years ago. The first push on the pedal went straight to the floor with almost no braking. It required two or three pushes before it would really brake. I don't remember exactly what it was, but it was a failed part letting air into the system I think.

Again, I would not use the car until fixed. Your and other's lives are at risk...
