Failure Date: 09/03/2011

While performing routine maintenance with my son he noticed all the front brake lines were severely rusted and close to failure. This vehicle previously encountered a burst rear brake line on 5-19-09, mileage at that time was 143,304. See NHTSA odi #: 10269462. All metal brake lines from the master cylinder and to/from the abs unit and front wheels were replaced to avoid imminent brake failure. Silently rusting brake lines are a potential for sudden and unexpected brake loss, only giving the driver seconds to react.

Failure Date: 07/29/2000

While driving about 55 mph rear wheels on the driver's side locked up for no apparent reason. Vehicle veered off the road and back on. Everything seemed to be okay. About a half an hour later, this happened again. Vehicle was towed to a dealership. Dealer was not able to find out what caused this problem. Also, master cylinders were changed on both rear brakes on June 3, 2000. Owner not sure if this could have caused the wheel to lock up. When the vehicle jerked sliding to the left, the wheel rim of driver side became bent locking it against the wheel bracket.
