2001 Volkswagen Jetta 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 127000 miles
Brakes lock up on icy and snow covered surfaces. The brake pedel goes all the way to the floor, and the brakes will not release until the car comes to a complete stop. You can just touch the brakes on icy surface and they will lock up. The ABS light does not come on. On dry surfaces I have no problem at all. I just took it to a automotive shop to have them look at the brakes. They said they could not find anything wrong. Brake pads were replaced a year ago or so. My kids have said that this car has always had this problem. I have just started driving it within the last 6 months.
