Brake pedal clicks

2232 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Forte5 Owner
Every morning when I start the car to go to work, the first time I push the brake pedal, it will click all the way down as far as I push it. Sounds and feels almost like a zip tie. Is this something to do with the ABS or is it a bad thing or what? It only does it the first time I press the brake. Any time after that, no sound and feels normal.

Sounds like some kind of master cylinder problem, unless something is rubbing the shaft.
Take it to the dealer and let them look at it.
Yeah, going to give them a call tomorrow. I was actually planning on checking the brakes cause there has been a couple of times where I can actually smell brakes in the back and although I do drive a little fast, I don't go near fast enough to get the brakes hot enough to make them smell. May as well make them do it.
no problem here, but a Sky Turbo we had, had similar brake issue when we first started it. Dealer couldn't find the problem. Miss that car thou, it was fast as hell. Almost 300hp with a few mods for a 2.0L turbo.
So what happened?

Hi, I'm experiencing what sounds like the same brake issue with my new 2011 Kia Forte 5. On the first brake application after the car has been sitting for several hours, the pedal goes all the way down and makes a sound, almost like air is being pushed out.

What did the dealership say about this brake issue when you took it in?
