191000 mi US $785 Was informed that the brake lines were rusting and should be replaced. Dealer estimate $2000. Called local garage, they said $2700 for stainless brakelines so problem won't occur again. They can only replace the brake lines that are rusting. Second garage said was there only some surface rust and the lines looked good. They said have it looked at every oil change.

230000 mi US $300 One caliper froze up. I also replaced both brake hoses and pads While replacing the caliper I decided to replace both front wheel hubs to fix the abs. While bleeding brake from earlier repair the rear brake line burst from excesive rust. Changing this line was more troublesome and time consuming than replacing the front brakes and wheel hubs because of limited clearance to the conector
