I'd say no since the brake lines themselves don't have one.The actual corrective measure, pasted from the linked letter from FHI to NHTSA:
• Scenario No. 1: If no brake fluid seepage is observed, the affected area will be rustproofed with anti-corrosion wax.
• Scenario No. 2: If brake fluid seepage is observed, the original center and rear brake lines will be replaced with new ones followed by rustproofing with anti-corrosion wax.
The big question is whether the "wax job" will be accompanied by a lifetime warranty against rust perforation..
Yeah I'm with you on this... seepage isn't a likely scenario, but bursting is.I have never, ever seen a brake line rust and weep, they always rust and then pop a significant hole (when needed most). And I have seen a lot of rusty brakelines!
If the lines really are weeping it must be a materials defect allowing very tiny deep pinholes caused by the rust 'burrowing' through a defect.
So if I'm in a State that isn't covered and the brakes fail due to rust on the line in question and I'm killed in the crash resulting from said failure I could sue because they knew about it but didn't cover me?
Though I'm not sure that would be such a good thing.
