Canyon 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50 miles
The contact owns a 2009 GMC Canyon. While pulling into a parking space at 10 mph, the brake pedal extended to the floor when it was depressed. The contact believed that there was air in the brake line, and that the air should be bled from the hydraulic system. The mechanic stated that other vehicles were experiencing the same issue and bleeding the air out of the hydraulic braking system would not repair the failure. The mechanic further stated that the vehicle was designed to operate in that manner. Currently, the brakes continue to fail. The failure mileage was 50 and current mileage was 955. Updated 07/01/09 the consumer stated when the brake pedal was depressed below the gas pedal, the brake did not go all the way to the floor. The consumer stated on 6 occasions, when the brake was applied, his foot would also press the accelerator. Updated 07/06/09.
