problem #2

Jun 012005

Silverado 2500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


The emergency brake has been used very rarely, but with just over 40K on it they eventually faded out enough to fail inspection. The dealership advised me that I must have drove with it on. I never used it, yet they collected over $200 to repair a defect. Over time I noticed the tension progressively weakened. Rusting on the rotors is extremely common, yet GM ignores the problem. I was told by the dealership on multiple occasions that it was from condensation. It causes premature failure of the brake pads & a rotor replace as a resolution(turning alone doesn't remove the rust). My other family member have had all the exact issues with the same type trucks(three different 2000 GMC/Chevy). My rotors will be replaced in the summer, however my braking is reduced due to rust wearing the pads unevenly.
