problem #2

Jan 052012

Escalade EXT 8-cyl

  • 109,200 miles
While driving at 35 mph an emergency situation required a hard application of the brakes. The very next stop sign my brake pedal went all the way to the floor. The truck was leaking brake fluid at about a drop every second from one of the hard metal brake lines that are routed under the driver's seat along the frame. There are four brake lines that are routed together and could not tell which one was leaking. Each of them is heavily rusted.

Escalade EXT 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Cadillac Escalade ext. The contact was driving approximately 10 mph in a parking lot when the brakes began to pulsate upon engaging. The brakes were applied repeatedly before the vehicle came to a stop. The failure recurred six different times. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the passenger side ABS sensor, front and rear rotors, master cylinder and four brake calipers were replaced. Most recently, the entire brake line rusted and was also replaced which required the body of the vehicle to be disengaged from the frame to perform the repair. The manufacturer was made aware of the defect. The failure mileage was 30. The VIN was unavailable. Updated 06/16/11 updated 1/24/2012
