Contact states while driving his vehicle, he experienced complete brake failure. When he applied the brakes, he heard a popping sound and the pedal went to the floor. The vehicle was towed to the local dealer and they found rust on the brake line. The dealer replaced the brake line and this corrected the problem. Updated 12/27/05.

The vehicle's brake line that goes through the firewall ruptured causing the brakes to fail when the driver was coming out of the drive way. Manufacturer was contacted by owner. The rupture was a result of premature total rust through in two locations along the pipe.
