problem #6

Silverado 3500

  • 56,000 miles
Had multiple brake line failures in the last 2 months. First being the main line to the rear brakes, then brake line to the right front wheel, then line to left front wheel. While truck was being worked on it was noticed that the front frame rail was starting to rust through near where the front bumper mounts, also noticed rust on the frame at front of cab area, this is not surface rust, this is rusted through the frame and has large rust scales. It is primarily in the area of the cab and forward. Frame seems to be okay from the cab back, problem is where the frame is enclosed.

Extended stopping distance when applying the brakes, the pedal feels spongy. Dealer stated that there was nothing he could do. Brake pedal goes to the floor and the front brakes will not lock up even if the ABS is disconnected. The trucks frame is so thin that the whole truck vibrates when taking off. Consumer states that the horn button has to be pivotted up and the steering wheel has to be at twelve oclock in order for the horn to sound, heat shields rattle under vehicle when traveling over bumps, dealer made adjustments.
