i was pulling out of a post office parking lot with my 1996 ford explorer and my brake pedal went all the way to the floor as i was driving home i tested my brakes and they still felt spongy. just as i pulled into my driveway my brake light went on and i lost all my brake fluid on closer inspection it was determined that my rear brake line rusted through. i made a appointment to have it fixed and it cost me 368.69. i have had other vehicles and i never had to replace brake lines. this truck is only 8years old and i do not believe a brake line is part of normal maintenance. *ak

Oaklyn, NJ

was going to ford dealer for gas tank strap recall due to straps that have poor corrosion protection. as i was enroute to dealer i applied my brakes due to a car running a stop sign and my brakes gave way and i just missed a serious accident. i checked my brake line where the leak was and due to very poor rust the line blow out. i ask the dealer when performing the recall repair could he fix the line and was stated a 600.00 charge. while at the dealer i called ford vp of customer service fred toney who then sent me to mr. fedders. i talked to a person from his office and told them that ford has a big problem on brake lines rusting and because of that i just missed having a serious accident. i ask ford to fix the linings at no charge and take the line for observation. i was told that since the truck is 10 years old and has 200,000miles on it they will not do anything. i stated that ford has no problem repairing the gas straps of a 10 year old truck. anyway had my truck towed to my mechanic and repaired. they replaced the front lines and intermediate brake lines due to poor corrosion. i was told my passenger side line and both rear lines are in great shape, no rust and coated. i told ford about this and said i want a ford rep to inspect my coated brake lines. and my defected line which i kept for proof. i ask ford why some line were coated and some were not. i was told that ford does not coat the lines. we have a serious problem here and could result in many deaths. if the other lines were coated i would have not had this problem. ford just wrote this whole thing off. i expect nhtsa to get back to me as soon as possible. i expect my truck to be inspected and the line that i have kept to be inspected. i am now notifying nhtsa and ford has been notified about this problem and is on record in the event nothing is done and people get killed the parties will have a problem. *kb

Albers, IL

while braking to turn, the brake pedal went to the floor and i was unable to stop. luckily i was already slowing for the turn and was able to downshift to slow enough for the turn. mechanic said the brake line was rusted through. with the recent recall of rusted gas tank straps on this vehicle, believe a recall on rusted brake lines is also warranted. this could have been a fatal accident under different circumstances, i.e., trying to stop at a train track, pulling a trailer, or going faster. *kb
