problem #2

Feb 012005

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,000 miles
Had problems with rear brakes when vehicle was first purchased. They were noisy and clunky, dealer found them to be 'normal' but dirty and cleaned them. When front brakes were replaced at ~15,000 miles (very early wear out and noisy) rear brakes were checked again and found to be excessively dirty/greasy-they were cleaned again. At ~ 35,000 miles the parking brake would sometimes seem to stick on. Rear brakes became less effective at ~46,000 miles, found that both rear wheel cylinders were leaking onto brake shoes. Both wheel cylinders were replaced.

problem #1

Mar 152003

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 31,300 miles
The consumer stated the brake rotors were wearing out, and when the brakes were applied, the vehicle experienced heavy vibration and extended stopping distance. Dealer notified. The rear wheel brake cylinder was defective. The front brakes only stopped, which resulted in dangerous conditions on ice, snow, and premature wear of the front brake pads. The dealer said this was common and the rear adjust didn't wear.
