Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVE A 2004 TAHOE WITH APPROX. 14, 000 MILES ON TIRES, PROCEEDING ON A SMOOTH, FLAT SECONDARY ROAD AT APPROXIMATELY 35-40 MPH, LOW TIRE PRESSURE SENSOR ALARM REGISTERED ON THE DASH PANEL. WITHIN 30 SECONDS OF THE ALARM THE TIRE WENT FLAT FROM A SIDEWAL FAILURE OF APPROX. 4 INCHES LONG. I DROVE APPROX. 1/4 MILE ON THE RIM/SIDEWALL TO GAIN A SAFE PLACE TO CHANGE THE FLAT. AFTER WAITING FOR OVER AN HOUR FOR GM ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE, I CHANGED THE TIRE MYSELF WITH THE AID OF A LOCAL RESIDENT. AFTER CONTACTING GM DEALER, NORTHSTAR CHEVROLET CLIFTON PARK, NY, DISTRICT SERVICE DIRECTOR SAID THAT THE FALIURE WAS FROM ROAD HAZARD AND WOULD NOT PAY FOR REPLACEMENT [$181.39]. THE SERVICE DIRECTOR SAID THE FAILURE WAS FROM THE OUTSIDE IN, GOOD MAN COULD TELL THIS WITH A TIRE WHICH WAS DRIVEN ON THE SIDEWALL FOR APPROX. 1/4 MILE. I STILL HAVE DIGITAL PICTURES OF DAMAGE TIRE.

THIS HAS BEEN A ISSUE SINCE AUGUST OF 2019. IT HAS CAUSED ME TO LOSE WORK FOR A LACK OF TRANSPORTATION.

Summary of Complaint

DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD AROUND 25 TO 30 MPH AND A KID RAN OUT BETWEEN TWO CARS AND I SLAMMED ON THE BRAKES AND THEY PARTIALLY FAILED. THE TRUCK EVENTUALLY STOPPED, BUT IMMEDIATELY GOT A BRAKE FAILURE WARNING AND I HAD TO HOLD THE PEDDLE TO THE WALL TO STOP THE REMAINING MILE OR SO HOME. I GET HOME AND LOOK UNDER THE DRIVERS DOOR TO INVESTIGATE A PUDDLE AND I SEE SMOKE WHERE THE RUPTURED BRAKE LINE HAD BEEN SPRAYING BRAKE FLUID ON THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER. THOUGHT FOR SURE THE TRUCK WAS GOING TO CATCH ON FIRE. THE BRAKES WERE JUST SERVICED, PADS AND ROTORS A YEAR OR SO AGO, SO I HAD NO CLUE THE LINES WERE BAD. JUST GOT HOME TO SEARCH ON THIS AND SEE THAT THE NHTSA HAS BEEN INVESTIGATING THIS, BUT NOT MUCH HAS HAPPENED WITH THIS SINCE 2014. VERY DISTRESSING. SEEMS THE ONLY THING THAT HAS BEEN DONE IS GM IS OFFERING THE REPLACEMENT LINES FOR SALE, BUT NO MENTION THAT THE DEALERS WANT $2,000 OR MORE TO INSTALL THEM?? I AM VERY THANKFUL THAT THIS KID IS STILL ALIVE AND WE BOTH DID NOT HAVE TO ENDURE A DEATH DUE TO THE CLOSE CALL. HOWEVER, I'M EXTREMELY DISTURBED THAT THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE WITH MILLIONS OF THESE TRUCKS ON THE ROAD AND NOTHING IS BEING DONE WITH THIS TICKING TIME BOMB. EVERY SINGLE SUCH AFFECTED TRUCK WILL EVENTUALLY RUN INTO THE SAME ISSUE, AND PEOPLE ARE GOING TO GET KILLED. GM IS CLEARLY NOT ADDRESSING THIS OR EVEN WARNING PEOPLE OF THE HIDDEN PROBLEM. WHY WON'T YOU GUYS DO ANYTHING ABOUT THIS BIG PROBLEM? YOU'VE KNOW ABOUT THIS FOR 4 YEARS AND NOTHINGS BEEN DONE? I'M SHOCKED, THAT GM HAS BEEN ABLE TO AVOID ALL RESPONSIBILITY DUE TO A MFRS DEFECT BY USING CHEAP AND INFERIOR PRODUCTS THAT DO NOT HOLD UP IN THE NORTHERN CLIMATES. COATED BRAKE LINES SHOULD BE MANDATED!!! JUST CAME BACK FROM THE NEXT PAGE TO QUALIFY: NO CRASH - BY ABOUT 1 FOOT. NO FIRE - VERY LUCKY. NO INJURY/FATALITY - THIS VERY CLOSE! I WOULD LIKE A CALL BACK.

Summary of Complaint

ON 11-11-15 I WAS SITTING AT AN ATM WITH MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. WITHOUT WARNING THE BRAKE PEDAL WENT COMPLETELY TO THE FLOOR. LIMPED TO OUR MECHANIC. THE MECHANIC ADVISED THAT THE FRONT BRAKE LINES WERE COMPLETELY RUSTED. REPLACED THE FRONT BRAKE LINES AT A COST OF $580. ON 5-28-17 MY HUSBAND HAD PULLED INTO A CONVENIENCE STORE AND WAS LETTING MY SON OUT OF THE VEHICLE, HAD HIS FOOT ON THE BRAKE AND YET AGAIN, THE BRAKE PEDAL WENT ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR. GOT THE VEHICLE HOME, CHECKED THE BRAKE FLUID RESERVOIR AND ONLY 2" OF FLUID WAS LEFT, CHECKED BRAKE LINES AND FOUND RUSTED OUT PLACES WITH FLUID LEAKING OUT. GOT THE VEHICLE TO OUR MECHANIC, SAME ONE THAT REPLACED THE FRONT LINES, HE ADVISED THE SAME PROBLEM, RUSTED OUT LINES. ESTIMATE TO REPLACE REAR LINES $540. HE ALSO TOLD ME THAT THIS WAS A "FLAW" WITH THAT YEAR TAHOE AND PICK UP TRUCKS. MY QUESTION IS IF THE MANUFACTURER KNOWS THIS IS A FLAW WITH THE BRAKE LINES WHY ISN'T THERE A RECALL TO HAVE THE BRAKE LINES REPLACED??? IT APPEARS TO BE A MAJOR PROBLEM, NO BRAKES IS NOT A GOOD SITUATION!!!!!!! SOMETHING NEED TO BE DONE WITH THIS PROBLEM.
