problem #2

Dec 192003

Silverado 2500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 28,000 miles
Parking brake sticks: I bought vehicle August 2000. Was called to active duty and deployed with military for 1 year beginning January 2003. Yes, that's less than the 3 year warranty. My wife used the vehicle occasionally and I have 31,000 miles on the truck and upon returning, the parking brake sticks. I have burnt out 2 sets or rear pads and rotors. Additionally, the slow and intermittent portion of the windshield wiper stopped working and the reverse/backup lights don't work. I contacted the dealer and GM and they both told me "too bad."
