      Yes, a faulty / clogged / collapsed flexible brake hose can restrict the hydraulc brake fluid. Replace the flexible brake hoses in pairs; front or rear (or both).
      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as;, or - for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the flexible brake hose (rear) for around $4.50 each for your vehicle. The front brake hose is around $8.00 each - same source.

      Press the brake pedal. If the pedal is firm, but then slowly sinks to the floor, and there is no evidence of brake fluid leaking, then you have an internal seal failure on your Civic's brake master cylinder. The master cylinder needs to be replaced.

    I brought my 2010 honda pilot with 28000 miles on it to the dealer because of a brake problem- This vehicle was purchase
    Vehicle was purchased new. Dealer said pads were about 1/2 worn but the rotors were warped. I said this should be under warranty and he said it was the way I drive. I said that was nonsense. He wanted $600.00 for new rotors and I said this was a warranty ...
      8/15/2012 MURDOCH
      Unfortunately the dealer is right. Brakes are wearable items just like tires, clutches, hoses, and belts. they are not covered under any warranty unless there is some special clause (though i've never heard of any). As far as the warped rotors being because of how you drive i don't totally agree, Jeeps for the longest time tended to have warped rotors inside the first 10k-15k miles because they just weren't designed properly.
      8/16/2012 bill
      I had a lincoln with warped rotors at 48000 miles with plenty of wear left on the pads and they were covered by warranty (OR a good dealer such as Crest Lincoln Mercury in New Haven, ct.) -If you google 2010 honda pilot you will see that there are a lot of problems with brakes on it.

      I agree with MURDOCH. Certain vehicles have a propensity to warp rotors, almost always the front rotors. Combine that "possible poor design" with a person that *might* be harder on brakes than another and the result is warped rotors long before the pads are worn out.

      If the brakes of this vehicle are functioning properly , then you can suck out old brake fluid, add new fluid without bleeding the brakes.
      The reason to bleed the brakes because there is air in the brake lines.

      yes you can essentially empty the master cylinder reservoir, but that will not suck out what is inside the calipers and cylinders and brake hoses and lines. If your reasoning is that you simply want to replace your brake fluid, you would have to bleed the brakes at all four wheels to do that. Changing only the fluid in the reservoir is like doing nothing.

    Brake does not catch too well. It works but it's not tight... Not sure how to describe it.

    A scrubbing, scraping sound under the car. Nothing is out of place but when i brake or drive at low speeds I hear it??
    We have been on a 3,000 mile trip for 6 days, noticed it 2 days ago. 200 pounds of luggage and 3 people in car. On left side. We checked to see if something was in the wheel well or stuck under the car but there's nothing it just sounds like something is scrubbing ...

    My brakes stopped working out of no where
    I was driving and notice my brake light had just turned on. I didnt know why so I tried to break and realized I no longer have breaks thankfully I found out with no one around me. Anyone know whats wrong and how much it would be to fix?

      You most likely have a rupture in a very rusted area of a steel brake line. Fill the master and start pumping the brake pedal and then begin looking under the car for the brake fluid dripping. The line will have to be cut out and a new line fabricated and installed using a double flaring tool only.

      Rotors are warped?
    • Tim

      could be the rotors being warped, the caliper could also be loose and moving while braking. Also check to see if your axel boots are in good condition.

    I'm hearing a squeacky sound randomly while driving the car. It sounds as if someone's rubbing steal against steal.
    The sound comes and goes and isn't necessarily made worse or better when I apply the brakes

      The front brake pads might be wearing out or the backing plate of the rotors touching.

      What is the solution, and how much would it approx. cost?

      Very unusual for brakes to go bad in 25K. It although could be the factory disk pads wear sensor you are hearing, front brakes do wear out sooner than rear as a rule because they take the brunt of the stopping action. Ask around to see if anyone recommends a good brake mechanic to check them out would be my suggestion.

      if the squeacky stops when you appliy the breaks and it come back after you let off,your brakes need replaceing
      7/27/2012 Bill
      As I was saying, have a qualified mechanic check it out or remove the front tires and check the pad thickness, pads should be at least a 1/4 inch in thickness. If you do a lot of quick stops the front pads most likely are the culprit. Don't let this linger on too long before you do something otherwise you could be looking at scaring/scratching the rotors if this is the problem.
