Summary of Complaint

WHILE PARKED I ATTEMPTED TO PUT VEHICLE INTO GEAR, BUT FOOT WENT TO FLOOR WHILE ENGAGING BRAKES. CHECKED UNDER CAR AND DIDN'T NOTE FLUID LEAK SO I CHECK RESERVOIR WHICH WAS FULL. HAD VEHICLE TOWED TO DEALERSHIP THAT SAID THAT LINES CORRODED AND FAILED. THEY DESCRIBED HOW THEY WOULDN'T ONLY REPLACE CORRODED LINE SINCE OTHER LINES WOULD BREAK OFF. FAILED TO MENTION THAT THIS IS COMMON OCCURRENCE FOR 1999-2003 TRUCKS IN NORTHEAST. QUOTED $150.00 FOR KIT AND $850 FOR LABOR TO INSTALL. VEHICLE HAS BEEN INSPECTED BY BOB FISHER (READING, PA) DEALERSHIP EACH YR. SINCE 2015 SO I'M CONCERNED THAT THEY NEVER INDICATED THAT THIS WAS AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN.

Summary of Complaint

A FRIEND AND I WERE DRIVING ON A VERY BUSY STREET IN FORT MYERS, FLORIDA AT THE 45 MPH LIMIT. WHEN TRAFFIC SLOWED FOR A RED LIGHT I APPLIED THE BRAKES ONLY TO HAVE THE PEDAL GO ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR. FORTUNATELY THE STREET HAS A WIDE BERM AND I WAS ABLE TO STEER AROUND TRAFFIC AND ROLL TO A STOP AFTER ABOUT 75 YARDS, CROSSING 2 BUSINESS DRIVEWAYS AND TAKING OUT 1 REFLECTOR. THE CAUSE WAS A BRAKE LINE RUPTURE DUE TO RUST. AN ON-LINE SEARCH FOR PARTS REVEALED THIS TO BE A RATHER COMMON PROBLEM THAT YOUR OFFICE IS WELL AWARE OF. I UNDERSTAND SUCH RUST HAPPENING IN THE NORTHERN STATES BUT MY TRUCK IS A FLORIDA VEHICLE THAT HAS MADE ONLY ONE WINTER TRIP NORTH AND I DON'T RECALL ANY SNOW EVEN THEN. THOUGH THE OWNER'S MANUAL DOES INSTRUCT THE OWNER TO INSPECT (OR HAVE INSPECTED) THE BRAKE SYSTEM, NO MENTION IS MADE OF RUST OR THAT THE LEFT FRONT INNER FENDER MAY NEED TO BE REMOVED TO SEE THE CRITICAL AREA (FOR RUST). WORSE IN MY OPINION, IS THE DUAL SYSTEM WHICH DID LITTLE TO SLOW MY TRUCK WHEN THE LINE FAILED. WHILE IT DOES STOP THE TRUCK IN NORMAL SLOW DRIVING, THE PEDAL HAS TO BE HELD ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR AND IN NO WAY DOES IT SEEM LIKE A SAFE "BACKUP". I UNDERSTAND THAT RECALLS OR EVEN NOTICES TO OWNERS CAN BE EXPENSIVE AND THAT THERE MAY HAVE BEEN NO INJURIES DUE TO THE RUST PROBLEM. BUT HAD THE STREET I WAS DRIVING ON NOT HAD A BERM TO ESCAPE TO OR HAD THERE BEEN A PEDESTRIAN ON THAT BERM, OR ANOTHER VEHICLE IN ONE OF THE BUSINESS ENTRANCES, MY INCIDENT COULD HAVE BEEN VERY TRAGIC. AS IS I AM STILL FACING A COSTLY AND VERY DIFFICULT REPLACEMENT OF ALL THE BRAKE LINES. AND I'LL BE LOOKING AT EVERY CHEVY IN THE AFFECTED GROUP AS A "TIME BOMB".

I TOOK MY TRUCK IN FOR A ROUTINE OIL CHANGE AND TIRE ROTATION. I PARKED IT IN THE PARKING LOT OUTSIDE OF THE SHOP AND WENT IN AND SAT DOWN TO WAIT. ALL OF A SUDDEN AN EMPLOYEE FROM THE SHOP CAME IN AND ASKED ME IF I HAD BEEN HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY BRAKES, I REPLIED NO AS THEY HAD BEEN WORKING JUST FINE. HE TOLD ME WHEN HE WENT TO PUSH THE BRAKES TO TAKE THE CAR INTO THEIR GARAGE THAT THE BRAKE PEDAL WENT STRAIGHT TO THE FLOOR. HE LOOKED UNDERNEATH THE TRUCK AND HE NOTICED THAT THERE WAS BRAKE FLUID SPEWING OUT ONE OF THE LINES WHICH HAD BUSTED. THERE WAS NO INDICATION OF ANY ISSUES WITH THE BRAKE SYSTEM PRIOR TO THEM COMPLETELY GIVING OUT. THEY TOOK ME BACK TO SHOW ME THE LINES AND I WAS ABLE TO SEE THAT ALL OF THE BRAKE LINES HAD BEEN COMPLETELY ERODED AND RUSTED. *TR

Summary of Complaint

THE DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS HAVE FAILED DUE TO WHAT APPEARS TO BE THE OVERHEATING OF THE LAMP SOCKETS. WHEN YOU GO TO REPLACE THE LAMP' THE SOCKETS APPEARS TO BE BURNT AND BRITTLE AND ARE MISSING THE LITTLE METAL TABS USED TO MAKE CONTACT WITH THE LAMP BASE. YOU CANT REPLACE THE LAMP. THEREFORE I ONLY HAVE 1 DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT AND AM WORRIED ABOUT A POSSIBLE FIRE HAZARD WITH THE OTHER ONE. THE ONE THAT WORKS LOOKS LIKE IT'S NOT FAR FROM FAILING AND VERY SOON WONT BE WORKING EITHER. THE MORE I SEE THE AMOUNT OF GM VEHICLES (TRUCKS, SILVERADO, TAHOE, TRAILBLAZER, SIERRA, YUKON & ENVOY'S) WITHOUT TWO DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS, I REALLY DO WONDER IF GM HAS A REAL PROBLEM. I SEE SEVERAL EACH AND EVERY DAY WITHOUT ONE OR BOTH. I HAVE SPOKE TO OTHER OWNERS AND THEY HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH ONE OR BOTH OF THEM. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. *TR

Summary of Complaint

APPROX. 2 YEARS AGO THE INSTRUMENT PANEL WENT OUT IN OUR CHEVY SILVERADO TK. AT THAT TIME THERE WAS ABOUT 50K MI. ON THE TRUCK. WE COULD NOT AFFORD TO HAVE THE PANEL FIXED. WE HAVE BEEN DRIVING THE TRUCK AS IS. WE HAVE HAD MANY CHEVY TKS. ABOUT ONE MO. AGO WE RECEIVED A LETTER IN THE MAIL ABOUT CHEVY PRODUCTS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEMS AS OURS. BUT THE STIPULATIONS ARE IN OUR EYES UN ACCEPTABLE. YOU CAN HAVE NO MORE THAN 70K MI. ON THE VEHICLE IN ORDER FOR CHEVY TO FIX THIS DEFECT. IF THEY KNEW OF THE DEFECT HOW CAN THERE BE THIS KIND OF STIPULATION... FOR THOSE OF US IN CA, THE MILES TRAVELED ARE MANY MORE THAN OTHER STATES. ALSO THE DEFECT IN THE VEHICLE DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE. WHEN IT HAPPENS IT HAPPENS! THE LETTERS WERE SENT OUT TO VEHICLES THAT ARE 2003'S. IT HAS ALREADY BEEN 5 YRS. WE BELIEVE THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL ON THIS PART. *TR

CONTINUED TO INSPECT ALL HARD LINES AND FOUND SEVERAL AREAS WHERE LEAKS WERE PRESENT. REMOVED VEHICLE FROM USE AND STARTED REPLACING ALL HARD BRAKE LINES. NEW LINES ARE STAINLESS STEEL THUS I SHOULD NEVER RUN INTO THIS ISSUE AGAIN. GM SHOULD HAVE USED STAINLESS STEEL LINES IN THE FIRST PLACE RATHER THAN PLAIN STEEL LINES. THE ORIGINAL BRAKES LINES BROKE LIKE TWIGS WHEN I BENT THEM TO THROW THEM AWAY. I HAVE NEVER SEEN BRAKE LINES IN THIS TYPE OF CONDITION ON A VEHICLE WITH 130,000 MILES. THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD AND POSSIBLE ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN. I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED BRAKE LINE FAILURE ON A VEHICLE LIKE THE CHEVY SILVERADO.

Summary of Complaint

SEVERAL OF THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD BOLTS HAVE SNAPPED/SHEARED CAUSING EXHAUST LEAKS BETWEEN THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD AND EXHAUST PORT ON THE CYLINDER HEAD. I'M LEARNING THAT THIS IS A COMMON ISSUE THAT HAS GONE UNADDRESSED BY THE MANUFACTURER, BUT IS CLEARLY AN EMISSIONS AND FUNCTIONALITY ISSUE. PLEASE HELP IN HOLDING THE MANUFACTURER ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS APPARENT MECHANICAL DEFECT. AS OF NOW, THEY OFFER NO ASSISTANCE IN REPAIRING THE ISSUE.
