brake line rusted....

2003 ZX3...was a California car...no visible rust on body...minimal underneath. Was driving away from house and about the 3rd stop...no brakes to speak of.

Haven't gotten into it much yet...but it looks like the brake line going to the rear brakes has rusted thru. Strangely enough it is in a place where it is far away from the wheels and road salt and up behind an alum exhaust shield...the last place I would expect serious rust damage.

Wondering is this typical for these years of Focus?

...and I am unanimous in that position.
