No Brakes, Fluid is gone

Sounds like you've got a leak in a line or the master cylinder.

If it's a bad master cylinder should be covered under your 3/36 (unless that's gone) but if it's a brake line that rubbed, most likely won't be covered. I had an 04 XL that a wheel rubbed a hole in the brake line and it cost me $334 for a new one from ford

You sure it's not a dodge? Man, that sucks. Sometimes it seems like one thing after another. At least it's just the brake line and not the master cylinder

I've must of increased Coors Light's stock a couple of points this past year with all of the stuff going out. You just don't know if it will be covered and then if not, how much is it going to cost?

Caliper went. $580.00. woah. Talked to the dealer though and feel that it was from another dealer that just installed the rotors and pads. I guess they have to "prove" that it was from the other dealer though. Not sure how this is going to go.......

Hopefully they'll just do the repair and charge the other dealer for it.

Yeah but if they don't I'm going to be pissed. Caliper shouldn't go out of the truck like that and it shouldn't be my fault, WTF?! That is a serious issue to have your brakes all of a sudden go out. It's not like a wear and tear issue either.
