hello i recently bought an 09 ford fiesta edge, ive noticed a problem when braking. when im approaching a t junction and use the brake very gently the car slows down but then for no reason it gathers speed again as if ive lifted my foot (which i havent). there are no revs going to the engine. it the same sensation you get when you put the clutch down (coasting) but the clutch is up, you can feel the car getting away from you until you apply more pressure. i wasnt sure if the brake pads are releasing or there is some clutch issue ie the engine braking stops as if the clutch is down. the reason this problem is very worring for me is because i have just started driving school business, and a learner could struggle to control the car when braking gently. any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated thanks tom
