  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles
2000 chev Suburban parking brakes lost effectiveness about 40000 miles. At 79550 miles all pads, rotors and parking brake linings were replaced. Very similar to many other complaints to NHTSA. One side lining was good, the other gone. One rear rotor could have been resurfaces, the other very bad. Good life for service brakes. Very poor life for seldom used parking brakes.

Consumer states that the rear cable to the mechnical brake is one half inch form the right rear tire. This does not enable consumer to put chains on the vehicle. Consumer also asks is there a possibility that the local dealer can move the brake cable so that a set of chains can be installed.
