I just got a $1955 estimate to fix a problem with the brakes on my son's 2013 Kia Optima. The pressure in the pedal was almost 100% gone last night, and thank goodness we were in a spot to stop safely. Does anyone have thoughts on how to take care of this for less money? I know almost nothing about brake boosters and pump modules, so any assistance to get my boy back on the road safely and without emptying our savings would be much appreciated.

Hey Matt's Dad, I had that problem with my Optima. Not the booster or master cylinder. There was a recall on the electronic hydraulic control unit that shorts as the result of brake fluid leaking into it. I ended up having to contact Kia Customer Support at the Corporate office in Irvine. Took some effort, but they finally covered it. It's a $6,000+ job. A Kia dealership took me it was the brake booster as well.
