I am the original owner of a 2000 Chevrolet Suburban purchased from mac haik Chevrolet in houston. I have complained about the inability of the parking brake to hold the vehicle in my driveway, and have had the rear pads/shoes replaced and the brakes adjusted more than once. Each repair seems to last a few thousand miles so I gave up returning to the dealer for repair. However, I have been informed that the vehicle will not pass a safety inspection required in Texas and do not feel that I should have to pay to have this repaired now that I have learned that there is a tsb that addresses this concern (02-05-26-002A-(01/28/2003). I am requesting that this issue be researched more thoroughly. If more drivers actually used their parking brakes on a regular basis this would be more commonly reported.
