Escalade EXT 8-cyl

  • 127,527 miles
I had just left my home and at the first stop sign the brakes failed, the pedal went to the floor, used emergency brake to stop. Returned home and found brake fluid coming from the left front frame area under the master cylinder. Pulled wheel off and the steel brake line had ruptured. All brake lines severely rusted. Not safe to drive. I have four other cars and none have brake lines rusted like these. Suspect material used to make brake lines not to specification resulting in sever corrosion..

Brake pedal went to the floor and subsequently lost all brake fluid. Cause was a corroded rear, steel (hard) brake line along the frame.
