2004 Cadillac Escalade EXT Owner Comments

problem #3

Jul 272015

Escalade EXT

  • 142,270 miles


The brake "lines from the proportioning valve to modulator, lines from master cyl to proportioning valve" had to be replaced. The quoted description is from the dealers service invoice. One or more of these lines corroded thru and failed while I was (luckily) in my driveway. I had filed a complaint in 2012 regarding corrosion failure related to the rear brake lines and in 2013 for corrosion failure related to the front brake lines. ODI numbers are available.
