brake fluid fire

2003 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

Review

YESTERDAY; our daughter was driving back home from an appt when the brakes failed--she eased it home, was in the house telling us about the problem for about 15-20 minutes while car was sitting turned off in the driveway. My husband went out to look under the hood and found it ON FIRE. Brake fluid was dripping on the hot manifold Luckily he was able to extinguish it. I believe the design of the engine with the brake line so close situated just above the hot manifold is ultimate cause. The heat MUST be causing the lines to crack/leak unlike in any other vehicle I have owned. We have seen reports online of similar problems since this happened to us.

Favorite Features

radio and cruise controls on steering wheel. lots of power outlets, great design for hauling kids and stuff. comfortable for long distance travel

Suggested Improvements

puse storage basket not accessible/big enough. vent louvers not mobile enough for directioning. Build it better! repairs have been expensive: wheel bearings, multiple brakes.
