Failure of my brake lines. This is the two brake lines leading to the rear brakes as they leave the "distribution block". the corrosion was near the junction at the hard tubing and flexible tubing. The plastic clamp accumulates dirt and salt and corroded the lines. Remainder of the tubing looks ok. Poor engineering, a definite design flaw. Were is the recall? failed without warning. Total loss of braking. Many complaints of this using a simple google search.

I had the brakes on my vehicle repaired twice. The first time my car had approx 40,000 miles and I was told it was due to the way I drive the car. Not more than 6 months later the brakes starting vibrating again and I took it back to burlington Dodge - were they told me, once again, it was due to the way I drove the car and there was nothing they could except replace them again. My most recent problem was the air conditioning totally malfunctioned. I saw smoke come out of the dash and when I took the car in for repair they told me the entire system had completely failed and I had to put in a new A/C.
