problem #1

Suburban 4WD

  • Automatic transmission

Feb.05 we were in big bear ca. With 4 or more feet of fresh snow: Coming down the hill in our 2002 Suburban the brakes became very soft and pedal went to the floor with no brakes. We checked the ground under Suburban and all the brake fluid was on the snow. We had subruban towed to the nearest dealer in redlands because there is a "bumper to bumper" policy on it. Tom bell had to replace the "brake line". we took a cab to the Ontario airport for a rental car and drove back home.
