I just purchased this vehicle. The car is in great condition. However, for a vehicle with low miles, these problems should not be an issue. ABS braking system problems; suspension problems; noise in the tires. ABS light comes on and ABS pump is making a humming sound; suspension, I have popping sounds when turning at slow speeds; loud humming sound coming from rear tires (I have read about the caliper issues with this model vehicle) I have yet to take and address the caliper problem but, my guess is that the brake calipers will need to be replaced. If these problems are happening to more and more of these cars, why has GM not recalled and fixed some of these problems. Mainly, the brake problems. This a potential life threatening problem. I am afraid to drive this car; I am worried that the breaks will fail, and I will crash the car. This saddens me that GM, the monstrous car manufacturer, has not fixed this problem that they sure know of. I will not be buying another GM model, and "I will" let others know all the problems I have had with GM model cars; this is not my first GM but, "will be" my last.

On highway and applied brakes when felt brake pedal pressure failing. At same time brake light and traction light indicators came on and pulled off the highway. Towed to a service place and told me the brake lines are all corroded and leaking. There is rust even on supports holding lines. Chevrolet doesn't make the lines anymore.
