Any bus with lucas girling brakes! These are hydraulic brakes on a lot of ford buses.
I am sure others may feel the same about these brakes.
The parking brake portion is the expensive part and troublesome when it fails.

I don't mind the lucas girling brakes.

For their time, they were fine.

That would not be a deal stopper for me.

Rust is a deal stopper.

For me I love 'em. They're rust free, and 100% reliable.
