Re: 2005 cts front passenger brake hose replacement
How long have you had this CTS? What state are you from, how long have you lived there with the CTS?
The reason why I am asking, because a few years ago 2010ish I think, there was a recall for the front brake hoses. However, it was only for the CTS's in the snow belt states. If you are/were in the military but had your CTS registered in a southern state but lived in a northern state. You most likely didn't get the recall.
You can check out the recall notice here... http://www.motortrend.com/cars/2005/...c/cts/recalls/
