Brake line failure - 1997 Cadillac Seville sts - 4.6L engine - rear brake line failed - directly related to the improper installation and abrasion caused by normal usage - brake fluid loss leads to no peddle pressure and greatly diminished or zero braking capability. Suggest recall to inspect abraded brakes lines.

I was on the highway driving at 60 to 65 miles an hour, the distance before the malfunction began was approximately 5 miles before my brakes automatically were applied during a non braking application. The Cadillac sts slowed down into a car that hit my rear bumper. I tried to recover from the bump. As an result, the momentum sent me into a rocky but grassy ditched area on the side of the highway. As a result of the ebtcm failing while driving on the highway, my bumper was damaged, front bumper was damaged, along with my steering and struts. I contacted GM about the issue with this defective ebtcm and the remedy has been that a inspector will evaluate the car then next(....) I will be notified whether or not it will repaired. The car has been parked majority of the time since my incident. I'm waiting for the inspector to call and schedule an date to view vehicle. After the date of accident, I went to get a diagnosis of the damage from an authorized Cadillac dealer and they told me I would have to start with the ebtcm and struts. In addition, they would need more time to diagnosis other issues.
