Driving down a hill on my street the brakes gave way. I pushed the pedal to the floor and the vehicle did not stop. I was able to pull over and stop the vehicle. Upon inspection, the service station indicated the rear brake lines failed due to rusting. The vehicle was towed to the dealer, where the two rear brake lines were replaced as well as a frozen caliper. Updated 08/27/14
