2015 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

Dealing informed us that there was oil contamination in the brake booster. This was reported to GM 1-800-222-1020. In 5 months time we have had this vehicle in for service on the same item. It wasn't until this last time that ron tonkin in portland, Oregon called GM and found that bulletin 11-00-89-005 directly discusses the matter. Because this deals with the brakes on the vehicle, this concerns the safety of the individuals.

Truck has 11K miles. When breaking at low speeds, I get a lot of break squeal. This happens driving forward or in reverse. Also, when driving the truck has a hard time shifting and makes a rattling/pinging noise when it is trying to find the correct gear. This happens sporadically when driving slow, fast, uphill, and mostly occurs during acceleration. The shifting issue happens on the freeway as well as city streets.
