Summary of Complaint

ABS LIGHT AND BRAKE LIGHT STAY LIT IN ON MY 1999 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 1500 [XXX]. I BROUGHT THE VEHICLE TO A CHEVROLET DEALER TO HAVE IT SERVICED. THE DEALER TOLD ME IT WAS THE ABS MOTOR IS MISALIGNED AND IS BURNT OUT AND WOULD COST IN EXCESS OF $1,000 TO FIX. ALSO, THAT HE HAS SEEN THIS PROBLEM A LOT. FOR A QUICK FIX HE TOLD ME I CAN REMOVE THE FUSE TO THE ABS. HE TOLD ME HE COULD NOT DO IT BECAUSE IT WAS A "SAFETY ISSUE." I HAD NO CHOICE SINCE I DID NOT HAVE THE MONEY TO FIX IT. BUT RECENTLY I NOTICE THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE 2000 MODELS (NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID#: 00V055000). SINCE THE 1999 MODEL WAS RELEASE TOWARD THE END OF 1999 AND USES THE SAME PART AS THE 2000 MODEL, IT ONLY SEEMS LOGICAL THE RECALL SHOULD EXTEND ALSO FOR THE 1999 MODELS. I BROUGHT THIS POINT UP TO THE DEALER, BUT THEY SAID THEY ARE VERY SPECIFIC TO SERVICING VEHICLE RECALLS AND MY VEHICLE DID NOT QUALIFY. I FEAR IF THIS PROBLEM IS NOT RECALLED, MANY TRUCKS WITH THIS FAULTY BRAKING SYSTEM IS A SERIOUS SAFETY CONCERN. I HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM FOR ABOUT 1 YEAR. PLEASE HELP. THANK YOU.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING TO MY HOME FROM WORK WHEN I NOTICED AN EXCESSIVE KNOCKING SOUND COMING FROM THE FRONT OF THE TRUCK. I PULLED INTO MY DRIVEWAY LOOKED AT THE FRONT SUSPENSION AND AROUND BOTH TIRES. THAT'S WHEN I SAW THAT THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT UPPER SHOCK MOUNT HAD BROKEN FREE FROM THE FRAME. THE SHOCK WAS JUST BANGING FREELY AGAINST THE FRAME. THE TRUCK IS 15 YEARS OLD SO I KNOW ITS NOT UNDER WARRANTY, BUT THAT'S JUST POOR CONSTRUCTION. THE TRUCK HAS BEEN MY DAILY DRIVER AND HAS NEVER BEEN OFFROAD. JUDGING FROM THE OTHER COMPLAINTS REGARDING THE FRAME CRACKING AND/OR BREAKING THAT I'VE READ, I'M ASSUMING GM ISN'T GOING TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. IT'S JUST SAD. REGARDLESS, I THINK NHTSA SHOULD ISSUE A RECALL BECAUSE THIS IS A SAFETY CONCERN. THE EXCESS BOUNCE CAN CAUSE THE DRIVER TO LOSE CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE. *TR

ENGINE/ EMISSIONS: THE PASSENGER SIDE EXHAUST MANIFOLD BOLT HAS BROKEN OFF. THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE WITH THIS 5.3L ENGINE AS WELL AS THE 4.8L AND 6.0L ENGINES. GM HAS FAILED TO RECALL IN SPITE OF HAVING THOUSANDS OF COMPLAINTS. THE ISSUE CAN CAUSE FAILED EMISSIONS AND POTENTIALLY ENGINE FIRES. ENGINE: AS OF 164,000 MILES, THE ENGINE IS EXPERIENCING LOUD "PISTON SLAP". THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE WHICH GM ADDRESSED THROUGH REDESIGN IN LATER MODELS. IT LEADS TO EXCESSIVE ENGINE WEAR AND POTENTIAL ENGINE FAILURE. IT APPEARS TO BE A FACTORY DEFECT, YET GM HAS CLAIMED IT IS NOT IMPORTANT DESPITE NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS FROM CUSTOMERS THAT THE ENGINES HAVE REQUIRED REPLACEMENT AS A RESULT. *TR

Summary of Complaint

IN 2013, THE ABS BEGAN ROUTINELY ACTIVATING DURING BRAKING AT SPEEDS OF 5-10 MPH. I FOUND RECALL 05068: UNWANTED ABS ACTIVATION. MY GM MAINTENANCE RECORDS NOTED THIS RECALL SERVICE WAS COMPLETED 3/31/2006. THE 3/31/06 SERVICE NOTES WERE "INSPECTIONS: ELECTRICAL/WIRING." I CONTACTED GM CORPORATE CUSTOMER SERVICE IN JAN.2014 TO NOTIFY THEM THAT CURRENTLY MY ABS WERE ERRONEOUSLY ACTIVATING ON NEARLY ALL BRAKING EVENTS. ADDITIONALLY, I ASKED WHAT RECALL SERVICE WAS ACTUALLY PERFORMED ON 3/31/06 BECAUSE THE NOTES ONLY INDICATE AN INSPECTION OCCURRED. A CONFERENCE CALL ENSUED BETWEEN GM CUSTOMER SERVICE, THE LOCAL GM SERVICE DEALERSHIP, AND MYSELF. GM ALLOWED 1 HOUR TO DIAGNOSE THE ABS PROBLEM ON 1/22/14 AT THE LOCAL GM DEALER. THE RESULTING 1/22/14 SERVICE NOTES WERE: "DIAGNOSE & FOUND LEFT FRONT WHEEL SPEED SENSOR DROPPING OUT. INSPECT WIRING FOR POOR CONNECTIONS OR DAMAGED WIRING. ALL OK. GAVE ESTIMATE TO REPLACE LEFT FRONT WHEEL HUB ASSEMBLY." IN PERSON, THE DEALERSHIP SAID THIS BEARING WAS WORN & WAS CAUSING ABS ACTIVATION. I LEFT UPSET, WITHOUT THE $642 WHEEL HUB ASSEMBLY INSTALL BECAUSE I DIDN'T BELIEVE THE BEARING WAS WORN. ON 5/30/2014, I HAD ANOTHER SERVICE SHOP INDEPENDENTLY DIAGNOSE MY TRUCKS BEARINGS, TIE RODS AND SUSPENSION. THEY CONFIRMED MY ORIGINAL BELIEF THAT THE BEARINGS DID NOT NEED TO BE REPLACED. I DID HAVE BOTH INNER TIE RODS REPLACED AT THIS TIME. ON 6/17/14, I TOOK MY TRUCK TO A 3RD SERVICE SHOP TO HAVE THEM COMPLETE A FRONT END ALIGNMENT BECAUSE INNER TIE RODS WERE RECENTLY INSTALLED. I ALSO ASKED THEM TO DETERMINE IF THIS BEARING WAS WORN. THEIR OPINION WAS THE BEARING WAS OK AND NO MAINTENANCE WAS REQUIRED. IN SUMMARY, THE GM SERVICE SHOP HAD OPPORTUNITIES ON 3/31/06 AND 1/22/14 TO COMPLETE THE RECALL REMEDY AND FAILED. I HAVE REMOVED THE FUSES TO DISENGAGE THE ABS AND PREVENT AN ACCIDENT BECAUSE THIS CONDITION STILL EXISTS. *TR

Summary of Complaint

WE WERE TRAVELING THROUGH SHEBOYGAN WI TOWING A 24-FOOT LONG FIFTH WHEEL RV BEHIND OUR 1999 SILVERADO. AT ABOUT 2:00PM ON JULY 9, 2013, WE WERE TRAVELING AT ABOUT 30MPH DOWN A GRADE ON WISCONSIN HIGHWAY 23 TOWARD THE INTERSECTION WITH I-43 BUSINESS ROUTE, BOTH HIGHWAYS ARE 4 LANES WITH LEFT TURN LANES AND THERE IS TRAFFIC LIGHT CONTROL. WHEN I WENT TO APPLY THE BRAKES TO STOP FOR THE RED LEFT TURN SIGNAL, THERE WAS ALMOST NO BRAKE EFFECT. I WAS ABLE TO RAPIDLY PUMP THE BRAKE PEDAL ENOUGH TO STOP,BUT ENDED UP ABOUT 5-10 FEET INTO THE CROSS-TRAFFIC LANE. FORTUNATELY, THE TRAFFIC WAS LIGHT AT THE TIME AND AS A RESULT, NO ACCIDENT OCCURRED. AFTER CREEPING OUR UNITS INTO A PARKING LOT, I CHECKED UNDER THE HOOD, FOUND NOTHING THERE, THEN CHECKED UNDER THE VEHICLE AND SAW A PUDDLE OF BRAKE FLUID. BY USING THE EMERGENCY BRAKE AND TRAVELING SLOWLY, WE MADE IT TO THE CHEVROLET DEALERSHIP. THEY EXAMINED THE VEHICLE AND REPORTED THAT SEVERAL OF THE BRAKE LINES HAD CORRODED BADLY WHERE THEY EXIT THE CENTRAL CONTROL BLOCK OF THE BRAKE SYSTEM UNDERNEATH THE TRUCK. THEY WERE LEAKING SLOWLY AND AT LEAST ONE OF THEM HAD FINALLY FAILED. WE HAD PURCHASED AN EXTENDED WARRANTY ON THE VEHICLE, BUT, UNFORTUNATELY, IT WOULD NOT COVER PART FAILURES DUE TO CORROSION. THERE WAS NOTHING IN THE OWNERS MANUAL ADDRESSING THE PROBLEM OF BRAKE LINE CORROSION AND THE SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES AT THE SHEBOYGAN CHEVROLET DEALERSHIP OFFERED NO INFORMATION. WHEN I DISCUSSED THE PROBLEM WITH THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT OF ED BOZARTH CHEVROLET IN TOPEKA, THEY OFFERED NO EXPLANATION. THIS COST US $935.66 TO REPAIR AND VERY NEARLY RESULTED IN SERIOUS BODILY HARM TO MY WIFE AND MYSELF. GENERAL MOTORS SHOULD HAVE BEEN WARNING CHEVY OWNERS ABOUT THIS PROBLEM AS WELL AS REIMBURSING THOSE AFFECTED. *TR

Summary of Complaint

BRAKE FAILURE, UPON LEAVING MY HOME I APPROACHED HWY62 TO MAKE MY STOP AT THE END OF MY STREET, WHEN I APPLIED THE BRAKES IT BEGAN TO SLOW THEN THE PEDAL WENT TO THE FLOOR AND I WAS FORCED TO GO ONTO STATE HIGHWAY 62 WITHOUT STOPPING. I WAS LUCKY THAT NO TRAFFIC WAS COMING AT THAT MOMENT. AS THE SPEED LIMIT ON THAT PART OF HWY62 IS 40MPH. I MADE A SLOW LOOP BACK HOME. I INSPECTED MY VEHICLE TO SEE BURST BRAKE LINE THAT WAS RUSTED BADLY NEAR THE FRAME AT REAR OF TRUCK. I HAD A WRECKER TOW IT TO A LOCAL SHOP. THEN TO FIND OUT THE BRAKE LINES WERE ROTTED OUT. $306.93 IN REPAIRS. *TR

Summary of Complaint

BRAKES FAILED ON MY 1999 CHEVROLET SILVERADO IN SEPTEMBER OF 2012 AS I APPROACHED A FOUR WAY INTERSECTION. I WAS UNABLE TO STOP THE TRUCK AND WENT RIGHT THROUGH THE INTERSECTION. FORTUNATELY, THE INTERSECTION WAS IN A RURAL AREA AND THERE WERE NO OTHER CARS AROUND OR THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO WAY TO HAVE AVOIDED AN AWFUL ACCIDENT. CHEVROLET DEALER SAID THE REAR BRAKES LINE HAD FAILED AND FABRICATED A STAINLESS STEEL BRAKE LINE TO REPLACE THE ORIGINAL. THE INCIDENT COST ME $1500 TO REPLACE THE BRAKE LINES. THE SILVERADO HAD APPROXIMATELY 90,000 MILES ON IT AT THE TIME. IN ANOTHER REPORT TO THE NHTSA, I REPORTED THAT THE FRONT BRAKE LINES HAD FAILED ABOUT FIVE YEARS EARLIER AND RESULTED IN ANOTHER HORRIFYING INABILITY TO STOP THE SILVERADO. *TR

Summary of Complaint

TRUCK WAS TAKEN TO DEALER FOR REGULAR MAINTENANCE, WHEN RAISED ON THE HOIST THE FRAME STARTED TO COLLAPSE AND BRAKE. SERVICE PEOPLE POINTED OUT THE PROBLEM AND TOLD ME AND TO CONSIDER GETTING A NEW TRUCK AND ADVISED I PROBABLY SHOULD NOT DRIVE THIS ONE ANYWHERE AS IT COULD BRAKE APART. THEY STATED THEY HAVEN'T SEEN THIS IN A TRUCK MAINTAINED AS THIS ONE HAS BEEN. IN LOOKING ON-LINE I NOW SEE THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM IN 1999 TO 2002 SILVERADO'S, WITH 100'S OF COMPLAINTS. GM WON'T TALK ABOUT IT AND STATES ANY RECALL HAS TO COME FROM YOUR AGENCY. THIS IS SERIOUS, NOT SURE IF ANY INJURIES ARE ATTRIBUTED TO THIS (YET) BUT THERE SURELY WILL BE. I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS NOT BE LOOKED AT WITH THE NUMBER OF ON-LINE COMPLAINTS AND REPORTS. *TR
