Good to know TFI brothers came to your rescue. The hose pipe getting cut is quite common frankly speaking and is not a major flaw given that this is a rubber part. It can happen in any vehicle. Given your experience, you will clearly be able to identify the next time the pipe is damaged. The hose on mine got cut 2 times in the last 2 yrs, The first time i had to get it towed since i got a MID warning to turn off the engine and i was not sure what happened. The next time, i clearly knew the hose pipe blew up and drove slowly straight to the SC. Worst case scenario, It is Ok to go to a local mechanic and have them use duct tape to seal the leak and drive to the nearest SC. I do understand that not everyone would be able understand the symptoms the first time this happens and the towing experience can be harrowing. After that incident, I actually looked around to try and source High quality silicon hoses but could not.
