While driving vehicle lost brake power, and somehow the driver stopped the vehicle without incident. Consumer determined that a hole in the brake differential proportional valve caused the brake fluid to leak. Vehicle was taken to the dealer, who stated that valve was welded in the wrong spot, causing the valve to wear out over a period of time. Brake differential proportional valve was replaced.
