2002 Silverado. I had an accident involving the ABS brake misfiring while approaching a stop sign in December 2005. They expanded the recall to my state 3 days after the accident. The road was dry, but the ABS kept firing and prevented the transmission from disengaging. It took me right into another car at about 5 MPH. GM paid for 80% of the total claim. I should have just taken it out of gear and I could have coasted to a stop with plenty of room to spare. The brakes were totally redone during the recall (new pads and the rotors turned due to heavy corrosion). In the spring of 2007, the breaks started failing again. I took it back to the dealer and was told the rotors needed to be totally replaced due to corrosion. Now in the spring of 2009, it is back in the shop. Rotors are so corroded that they must all be replaced again. I understand needing new brake pads every two years, but not new rotors. The parts are all Genuine GM and guaranteed to fail prematurely. Believe it, it is very real and very dangerous.

GM vehicles affected by the recall include the Chevrolet Avalanche and Silverado pickups and the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe SUVs. The GMC Sierra pickup and Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs are also affected. All the vehicles are from the 1999-2002 model years.

Is this recall still being honored ? I justb ought a 1999 Suburban but have not noticed any problems with it

I have a 2004 Chevy Suburban. The front bumper is full of rust pits. The rest of the vehicle is fine. Is there a recall on this?

I have a 2003 Avalanche Z71. Aside from countless front suspension problems, I have the brake probs. too. One pad is to the metal, other is at 75%, etc. Best fix I've found is to grind out the channels in the pads just a bit. Aftermarkets just aren't the same as OEM, and the track grease wears off QUICK. If you take a 1/4 in. grinding wheel on an angle grinder to the channels, the pads slide more freely, hence wear more evenly.

This is about the break lines on a 2002 Sierra Short Bed 4 wheel drive crew cab 1500 hd GM truck. The line burst open and when I checked it I found a lot of holes in the line and my drive way full of break fluid. It's on the driver side, where the lines go into the abs controll box. Three people in my neighborhood have the same problem. Why hasen't this problem been addresed by GM and a recall for the brake line problem put into place. The local dealer didn't know anything about our problem, but I was able to go on line and find several other GM owners who experienced a failure.

My 02 Avalanche just blew out the rear supply line for the brakes. Is there anything I can do besides paying out the big bucks?
