Brake failure, front brake line corrosion (rust through) resulting in complete loss of brake fluid. Thankfully no accident resulted. Correction required new brake line replacement and replacement of lost fluid, etc this failure is the same type which occurred to our 2000 Buick Century. In that car first the front brake line failed (like the 1999 did), and about a year later the rear brake line failed with the same corrosion problem. The incident happened out of state and the repair shop manager stated "this has become a common problem and that he has replaced many failed brake lines.
