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
