Silverado 8-cyl

  • 65,954 miles


Driving back to work from lunch on busy 4 lane highway, brake pedal went to floor. Narrowly avoided a collision at a red light. Put flashers on, lowered the gear selector, and used combo of minimal brake pedal and E brake to make it back to the parking lot at work. Upon inspection, large puddle of brake fluid on driver side near gas tank. Large leak in highly corroded brake line. All brake lines in similar condition and are currently being replaced in the shop. Transmission lines and fuel line are in similar highly corroded condition.

: the contact stated the tonneau cover used on the bed of the pickup truck does not catch properly. The clips holding the lid in place only catch 1/8" on the bed of the truck. At highway speeds, the lid opens and the contents of the truck bed ejects. The manufacturer of the tonneau cover is steffens enterprises Inc. The contact has been unsuccessful in contacting the manufacturer. Updated 05/04/06
