car   Brake Fluid Leak problem 1
Failure Date: 04/29/2009

The brake lines on my 1999 Buick Century corroded, fluid leaked and the brakes failed. Fortunately, I noticed the brakes beginning to fail (pedal went all the way to the floor), so I drove defensively and was not involved in an accident. I was only a short distance from my local garage and went there directly to have the lines replaced. They told me that the lines had rotted through. I assumed that this was something that happens in areas that use winter salt, but hearing of the recall of gm trucks, I now realize that this may not be a "normal" event. The parts in question are no longer available.
