The ABS braking system goes stiff at low speeds. I have to jam on the brakes extremely hard in order for them to stop, the brakes eventually will stop after a 3 to five more feet.the ABS braking system is extremely dangerous and serves no purpose.the vehicle works better after disabling the ABS brake system.please recall all Chevy Silverado and Tahoe due to ABS braking system issues.
