2000 Dodge Ram 1500 -Dec 2009 - 47000 mile. No indication of brake issues until hitting them hard to avoid car that ran a red light. Brake line from master cylinder to rwal unit failed (pinhole leak), but managed to avoid collision. Drove home (slowly) and fabricated/installed replacement section (about 16" long). After bleeding brakes - drove truck normally until June 2010. Then, with no warning, the brakes again failed in a parking lot stop. Found the leak in the rear section of the line running from front to rear.dealer estimate to replace all hard lines is $1000. Who can afford that ?? so, I will be spending many hours of my own time to fix the problem caused by cheap imported chinese steel. Thanks bill clinton !! I have other "good american cars" that are 40+ years old and 100K+ miles with the oem lines still good. These new vehicles suck !!!

The contact owns a 2000 Dodge 1500. While driving 40 mph, the air idle valve did not open and caused the vehicle to stall when the brakes were applied. The contact believes that there is a defect in the design of the vehicle. The air idle valve was installed backwards and should remain in the open position to allow air to enter and for the vehicle to properly close. The failure occurred on two occasions. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and they replaced the valve, which was installed in the same manner. The repair lasted for a year, but the failure has recently resurfaced. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 100,000 and current mileage was 112,000.
