:banghead:I was driving with the family on the weekend to Oklahoma on a boxing tournament and the emergency brake and traction control light came on, took it to the dealer and they told me that the seal to the mastercylinder had gone out and leaked so many pints of brakefluid into the booster. I had to get a whole new mastercylinder and a booster pump, it cost me $800.00 to get it fixed. Has anyone had this problem? I called other dealerships to price the parts and they told me that they can't keep the parts in stock because of the same problems with similar vehicles.They suggested that I keep my receipt because there might be a recall, I have also had to change the head light harness because it burnt out and not to mention now its telling me to service the low air pressure sensor. I almost forgot, we drive a 2008 Outlook with under 61000 miles. That just aint right. I happen to be a GM guy but I don't about that now. The Mazda CX-9 are looking pretty nice.

If you are talking about prior to the problem then the answer is no, but the brake fluid was changed when they did the service.

Seems like an unlucky break IMO (master cylinder and booster). I did have the driver's side melt, but it was replaced under extended warranty.

If it is a common as you say, those people aren't on the lambda boards.

I think it is unfortunate that you had the problem, but I too don't think it is that common.

I too have had the sensors coming on and the GM dealership told me everything looked fine and topped off my brake fluid, because that is what will cause my sensor lights to come on via the service dept. Well not even 1 month later, the sensors are coming on again. The dealership is about 45 min drive from me, so they want me to take it to a local oil express to have the brake fluid checked again.... I'm thinking there is a leak somewhere. I only have 67,000. and from what I am reading in previous forums this appears to be a common problem in 2008 outlooks.
I have had other issues with my outlook, already replaced my water pump $500.00, GM would not reimburse me due to we didn't drive my broken water pump car 45 mins to their dealership. Telling me I should of had it towed, probably at my cost too?

I have the exact same issue on my 2008. The array of lights and dings started after waiting at a stop light while the vehicle was at an incline. I put a full canister of dot 3 brake fluid and the warning lights have been off after a full day of driving. I have 61,000 miles so wonder if it's normal to lose so much fluid under normal driving conditions? Probably a master cylinder leak. My power steering pump started making a bunch of noise 6 months ago and also topped off the reservoir, all good ever since. What's next...

You have a leak somewhere, have looked under the car to see if you can spot fluid dripping?

I see our people have experienced the same problem that I have. I hope this issue raises a red flag to GM to reimburse customers their money regarding this issue. I have a 2008 Outlook with 91,000 miles.

I had to replace my water pump a few weeks ago.
