1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

S-10 Pickup

After only 4 years and less than 77,000 miles, this P/U experienced a failure in the diaphragm inside the brake booster unit. I have owned numerous vehicles for 10 or more years, both domestic and foreign, however, this is the first Chevy. It is also the first, out of seven(7) to have this type of failure, period, much less this early. Have there been other reports of similar failures in the 1997 S-10 series" if not, can a survey be run to check"

While driving 15 mph applied brakes, had to push really hard to get vehicle to stop, there was a squishy noise, and extended braking distance. Brake booster causing noise, dealer replaced.

EA94038, ABS braking system failure; when applying the brakes during emergency stopping situation, the truck shutters like it's hitting ice then dry pavement. When applying the brakes a second time, the pedal goes completely to the floor and a strange noise comes from the dash. In the last two weeks the brake booster has been replaced twice by the dealership under warranty.
