Backing up from a parked postion applied the brakes and they did not respond. A vacuum leak from a cracked/broken rubber elbow caused the brakes to fail. Over the past 2-1/2 years the elbow has been replaced 5 times the the same thing.

Aveo 4-cyl

  • miles
Brake line rupture and resulting brake failure caused minor rear end collision with vehicle in front. Air bag activated but structural damage minor until the fire. Fire originated in front left (impacted) corner and consumed entire engine compartment to the fire wall. Weather perfect, dry roads, no obvious cause of fire. Except for brakes vehicle was drivable until fire.
