Applied brake in preparation to reverse, from driveway heard a pop and brake pedal went to floor. Brake did seem a bit soft the previous day when parking car after short trip. Luckily did not lose brakes in traffic!! upon visual inspection brake fluid leaking from frame rails left and right side of vehicle due to rusted out brake lines.

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.
