2003 VUE 3.0L
Default Brake hose?

How often do they fail? I have had 3 vues and 3 equinoxes in last 3 yrs. I am a hobby flipper. I got a non running vue 2yrs ago and it had a seized right wheel. Ended up changing flex hose. #1. My kids vue had really poor brakes last yr and I changed both front hoses and braking was much better. #2-3. My equinox had a dragging wheel hose #4. Got diff nox and noticed both front wheels had lots of brake dust. Changed hose#5. You might never notice this trend if you only had 1 vue but I have had a bunch. Is my statistical size just above avg? And I have changed 6 wheel bearings on the bunch as well.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Brake hose?

Thought our equinox #2 had good hard brakes. Felt odd last few weeks though. I changed 1 front flex hose and it was dated 01/05. Ordered some more and did 2nd today. It was dated 12/04. Luckily, the flare fittings have been no issue so far.
