problem #1

Sep 232005

Silverado 2500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles
There is recall 05V161000 concerning emergency brake problem on manual transmission vehicle. However, the consumer's vehicle has automatic transmission. This vehicle was not included in the recall due to VIN although it has the same emergency brake system on automatic transmission. Realized this problem on September 23, 2005 because of taking the vehicle to get it inspected, and their insistence the emergency brakes will not hold. There was no forewarning for the problem.
