Several years ago, i had a few brake lines repaired at a service station due
to their rusting out.
Have a '97 Buick LeSabre.
Since then, no problems.
I just brought the car in for a state inspection at a local Buick
Dealership, and they said that it would not pass as the service station that
did the repair apparently used compression fittings, rather than flared, on
the brake line fittings.
I guess flared would certainly be better, but is this something I should now
make a big deal over with the service station that did the work a few years
Can compression fittings (also) be considered "safe", or MUST they be
Any thoughts would be most appreciated.
