Don't believe the ABS system works and the front disc pads need replacement every 3K miles. Chevy didn't want to address problem.

I had to stop to avoid an accident and the brakes locked without the antilock system engauging. There must be some kind of problem with the antilock system. This was my third Suburban. I sold the vehicle one month ago.
