Poor brake system performance-have had rotors & drums resurfaced starting at 24,500 miles & at 33,000 miles. Now at ~36,000 miles the rotors & drums need to be replaced!this is my every day vehicle & is not a work truck.

problem #1

Mar 012007

Sierra 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 GMC Sierra 1500. The contact purchased the vehicle with an odometer reading of 257 miles. He has experienced brake rotor failure for the second time. The cause of failure was diagnosed as the groves needing to be repaired or replaced. The rotors were making a grinding noise and the dealer would not repair the vehicle for free. The dealer stated that there are no failures with the brakes. The groves are getting deeper and deeper, but the dealer claimed that this is not a safety issue because nothing is wrong with the brakes. He has called the manufacturer, but no one is investigating the failure. The VIN was unknown. The current mileage is 11,450 and failure mileage was 9,000.
