Consumer took vehicle for inspection. Vehicle didn't pass inspection because rotors were rusted which caused the front brake pads to wear out. Also, brake line was defective. Consumer stated that he fixed vehicle and he wants reinbursement from the dealership.

When the brake pedal is applied it goes to the floor, increasing extended stopping distance. Brakes respond late. Also, brake pads have been replaced 7 times. Dealer says that they can't find the cause of the problem.
