When brakes were applied they jerked and were not stopping the vehicle efficiently, there was also a clanking noise noticed while driving the vehicle. Dealer was consulted - he stated that the people who rotated the tires torqued them too much. Went back to dealer who supplied the tires - they replaced the brake linings on the front thinking this would solve the problem - it didn't. they then pulled the rotors and found that the rotors were basically falling apart - the metal was just falling off. Front rotors were replaced. Within a week the back rotors were doing the same - took the vehicle to a local garage, because the brakes were not functioning very well. The rear rotors were in the same if not worse condition. Chevy was contacted. They did not want to acknowledge the problem even though their dealer service manager, backed up the complaint (we took one of the rotors to the service manager to show him. They are not interested in this problem - said that they couldn't be sure the rotors came off of their vehicle. They also did not show any understanding of the seriousness of not having brakes - their attitude was very disconcerting.
