When trying to break suddenly(someone in front or someone pulling out in front of me) when road is wet from rain the steering wheel shakes violently and brakes seem to pause before breaking.

The truck itself is great, however the ABS engaging at inappropriate times is a harrowing experience. I've called the dealers, and requested information about the news reports of vehicle recall, however at this time it is still being investigated. Should something happen to my son, myself, or both, I just wanted some type of record. Especially w/ the approach of winter.

When coming upon a stopped vehicle ( approx 10 carl length ahead of my car ) I was traveling at about 25 to 30 mph when I applied my brakes to gradually slow down but all I got was a vibration from the brake pedal but no braking. I continued a firm push on the brakes but rolled into the stopped vehicle without any slowing of my vehicle. I held the pedal down solid with no pumping. The truck in front of me sustained little if any noticeable damage. I had to be towed.
