1997 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #3

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

1997 Tahoe had a stick substance in the cargo area. The black rubber piece that is attached to the iron bar that the tire is mounted to has been melting and dripping into the cargo area. The substance was very strong and made the consumer feel sick while driving the vehicle.

Over the past 2 years have had multiple incidents of low speed brake failure/inadequate braking, especially on down hill grades. Parking lots. Feels like ABS is malfunctioning. Multiple mechanics have worked on system, all relate it to ABS malfunctions. Awaiting info on ne recall due to salt corrosion affecting ABS. News media stated the entire system would have to be replaced to correct situation. Only luck has prevented an accident so far.

My anti-lock brakes kick in when applying the brakes at slow speeds. This happened last year and we had the parts replaced on one side (but don't remember the exact date). It is now happening again, and we believe the other side needs replacement. Also had the problem one time when I was just going slow in a parking lot and not applying brakes. Also having a problem with engine knock. Mechanic said it was a defect with the cyclinder.
