problem #2

Silverado 2500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,100 miles
This complaint is in regard to my 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500 4X4 and its poor brakes. At 40,000 miles just over a year ago, all of its disc rotors were replaced due to excessive wear by my certified mechanic. A complaint was filed with GM customer service at that point. At 50,000 miles, a small leak was found on my rear caliper and vast, significant corrosion was noted on all 4 calipers. Due to safety issues, all 4 calipers were replaced by the same mechanic. I continue to experience further braking difficulties. As I approach a stop, my braking distance will increase at 5mph or less and it feels like hesitation through the pedal and a chattering. This has caused me to stop further into intersections than anticipated and many near- misses for rear end accidents. No warning lights have been activated and no diagnostic coding is evident when tested. I brought the truck to a local GM dealership who claimed to know nothing of problems with the ABS in my truck's model or year. Upon test drive the GM mechanic felt it was the ABS sensor and corrosion causing the problem, therefore the wheel assembly and sensor were replaced as one unit at cost of $520 paid by me.
