Fusion Sport Brake problems , need help/advice!

2010 Ford Fusion Sport 88k Miles
about 2 months ago my brake all of a sudden didnt work properly, I had to push it all the way to the ground to make it stop, and it didnt stop very well.
Took it to ford, and they said the rear brake caliper needed replacing , and the ABS module was shot , so they replaced with with a used one. about $750
Got the car back, and it wasnt much better , so I took it back. They said the used ABS module was leaking and it needed a replacing, so I got a new one installed. They got the new one, and was ready to give it back, but the new one failed, so they had to replace it again. They tested it and said it still wasnt right, checked the master cylinder and said that was also and issue, and had to replace that and bled it twice. It was at ford for about a week. Just got it back today and it STILL is not better. IM gonna call again in the AM about it.
Does anyone know what else could be wrong? should I get a second opinion ? Are they pulling my leg here?
any help or advice would be appreciated, thanks!

Sounds like they're pulling your leg. Usually if you have to push the pedal to the floor it means that there is air in the system. either one of those components could theoretically leak. However, Ive never seen a caliper fail that way (they usually lock-up and slow your car down all the time).
What was the reason for replacing the first ABS module?
To me it sounds like the guy working on your car is having trouble bleeding your brakes.

I do this from my phone. Do the BSD. slight vibration increase. Zoom-zoom 😎
