Have a '97 Buick LeSabre with about 65K miles on it.
Live in Northeast, and car has been garaged, porobably, about 50% of time,
most always in the winter time.
Just had a brake line go out on me, totally, while driving.
Quite exciting experience.
Had the burst line replaced, but have been told that all the brake lines are
pretty rusty, and they all should be replaced.
a. Is this fairly "typical" for a car like mine with the mileage I have ?
b. Don't they use stanless steel for these important lines ?
c. Garage says that these lines are not available as exact replacement
pre-bent and configured lines, and that
they all must be bent to fit. Is this so, or should I go to a regular Buick
dealership ? Have been hoping to
avoid, due to the costs involved at local Buick dealership.
What should be a typical cost to replace "all" of these lines ?
Any thoughts on this would be most appreciated.
