I have seen enough already on the boards and at my shop. So I decided to make a video on checking your brake hoses for cracks, splits, and slits. I not only illustrate how they look when failing with the weight off the wheel (truck jacked up) but how well the splits are hidden once the weight is back on the wheels. I suggest everyone that owns an Escape do this simple check before your loved ones drive off with brake hoses ready to blow out just when they need them most.
