2000 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #5

Mar 292012

Silverado 8-cyl

  • 153,200 miles


Rusted steel brake line burst leaking brake fluid and loss of brakes. Fortunately(?) this occurred when vehicle was parked as brake was applied to shift transmission out of "park". it could have resulted in a major collision. Upon inspection, all of the steel brake lines are badly corroded, and need to be replaced to safely operate the vehicle. 3 years ago, I had to replace corroded rotors due to corrosion as well. From what I have learned, this is an epidemic for GM trucks of this era. Is GM liable for these costly repairs?

Chevrolet Silverado was taken to dealer in March 2006 for 100K service. Dealer stated the fuel line is so badly rusted that he could not replace the fuel filter for fear of rupturing the gas line. When I suggested replacing the entire fuel line the estimate was $999.90 due to extensive labor cost.
