  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,224 miles
While driving, the brake line leaked. As a result, the pedal became mushy and was unable to grab. The dealer stated the fuel tank was designed too close together, therefore, dirt settled on the line and caused rusting. The front brake pads and rear brake shoes were installed on the vehicle. When the repairs were being made, the technician(s) noticed the front pads wore out prematurely due to the defect. (ac delco durastop brakes)
