Driver front Caliper failure causing complete loss of brake & significant rotor damage on same side. Note: the front passenger brake pad still has 80% life left to it and rotor on this side was fine. Damage caused by the failed driver side caliper created costly repairs since I was required by the mechanic to replace brakes and rotors on BOTH sides to prevent dangerous mechanical driving conditions.
