The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Colorado. The contact stated there was a self-adjusting spring that was accumulating dirt and debris. As a result, there was a hole worn in the brake drum and causing the brakes to fail intermittently. The dealer advised that the failure was an environmental issue. The brake drums were replaced at the contact's expense by the dealer. The contact believed the failure to be a defect in manufacturing. The failure mileage was 48,500 and the current mileage was 50,000. Updated 11/19/2010 updated 11/24/10.
