Try having them power bled, sounds like air in system or brakes are worn out.

I took my car to the dealer and they said my hydralic pump went out. Since then I have read some complaints about the '08 fusion brake problems. I am wondering if there is a possibility of this being a recurring problem after this is fixed or a problem with the brake system?

No if it was problem about it normally it is fixed. You might call for d and see if they have a campaign with it to get it partially paid for at dealer. Or if you bought the extended warranty it may stil be covered under that.

Thank you so much for your help, one more question please. Does the 08 Fusion have a hydraulic pump or is it just a brake line?
