As Jim and others here have pointed out, my Volvo uses copper brake lines. About the only time I have seen an issue with them is if someone does not put them into the "holders" and they rub, there will be a leak after they rub through. The copper pips seem to be to be pretty soft. That is not a defect in the lines as much as poor quality workmanship.

>NOT copper.  Copper/Nickel alloy, specifically made for brake lines.  Please see the link I posted, or Rick's to FedHill.
