    My mother has a 2017 Model S.

    She told me yesterday that while in a parking lot, the cars brakes were malfunctioning.

    She said it was a span of 5-10 secs, car was rolling forward under 5mph to park. When she pressed the brakes, nothing happened. The car just kept moving forward. She pressed it again and nothing. Finally she slammed her foot down hard and the car stopped, but by then the car scraped something.

    Has anyone else had this issue with the brakes?

    She's a bit freaked out. She was not pressing the accelerator as that would have caused a really bad crash.

    I told her to take it in, have tesla pull the log.

    Also let her know the "park" button is the emergency brake.

    Did she just wash the car? I know that after a pressure wash I have to press down hard the first time, after that I'm good.

    And I think you hold the button down to get it to work at speed. But going slow, it will stop you in your tracks (been there, done that by pushing it too soon before coming to a full stop)
