On June 7, 2005 while driving 45 mph the consumer was following another car. There was a car in front of the consumer that slowed down the consumer attempted to slow down as well. The consumer pushed the brakes almost to the floor and it took longer than usual to stop. This almost caused the consumer's vehicle to hit the other car in the rear end. The consumer was shaken and went to a repair shop. The brakes were inspected by a mechanic. The mechanic determined that the rear brakes were rusted and needed to be replaced. The front brakes were fine. The rear brakes and drums were replaced. The consumer. Took the car to a GM dealership for the emergency brake repair. They replaced the emergency brakes. The dealership said there was nothing they could do about the brakes rusting. The consumer called GM and they said there was nothing they could do, and didn't know why the brakes went out. The consumer doid not know either. Has never had other problems with the brakes before or after this. The parking brake shoes were replaced.
