problem #2

Aug 012005


  • miles
On my 2002 GMC Sonoma truck the front driver side brake pad was worn off and the rotor severely scored and ruined by 14,000 miles, to the extent that the GMC dealer declared it unsafe to drive. Mean while the passenger side front brake pad was largely intact and the rotor perfect. Also the ABS system failed to stop truck promptly or smoothly on several occasions.

  • 39,000 miles
The front/rear brake rotors wear out prematurely, causing extended stopping distance. Dealership repaired the problem.
