problem #1

S-10 Pickup 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 71,092 miles
Brakes failed to engage at 35-40 mph. Brakes emitted groaning, grinding noise.from '1996-1999 complained to dealers brakes not working properly, and that the anti-lock seemed to be "locked" in place; was told nothing wrong. On 03/28/2000 ABS was modified under campaign 99V-193, and brakes worked. Now when brakes are applied, vehicle skids and seems to go faster.
