ABS ENGAGED DURING MODERATE BRAKING, CAUSING VEHICLE TO GO INTO A "COAST" SITUATION RESULTING IN A REAR-END COLLISION WITH VEHICLE AHEAD. WITNESS 1 VERIFIED BRAKE LIGHTS CAME ON, BUT VEHICLE WAS NOT STOPPING. WITNESS 2 VERIFIED HEARING ABS ENGAGE, BUT ALSO STATED VEHICLE WAS NOT STOPPING. PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED SEVERAL TIMES PREVIOUSLY (NOT RESULTING IN ACCIDENTS), BUT DEALER HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE A PROBLEM. VEHICLE WAS TOWED TO DEALER AFTER ACCIDENT, AT INSURANCE COMPANY REQUEST, BUT AGAIN, NO PROBLEM WAS FOUND. HAVE ASKED FOR GMC SERVICE REP. TO INSPECT VEHICLE. DEALER COMMITTED TO CONTACT FACTORY REP. AND HAS STATED FACTORY REP. WILL CONTACT US THIS WEEK TO DRIVE VEHICLE FOR EXTENDED PERIOD. CURRENTLY WAITING TO HEAR FROM FACTORY REP., BUT DEALER DOES NOT EXPECT HIM TO FIND ANY PROBLEM. IT IS OUR OPINION THAT VEHICLE IS UNSAFE TO OPERATE DUE TO THE RANDOMNESS OF APPLYING BRAKES AND HAVING VEHICLE GO INTO "COAST" MODE. DUE TO NUMBER OF TIMES THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN RETURNED TO DEALER FOR THIS PROBLEM AND THE FACT THAT IT FINALLY RESULTED IN AN ACCIDENT WITH INJURIES, WE FEEL THAT GMC SHOULD TAKE SOME RESPONSIBILITY. FIRST, NECESSARY REPAIRS SHOULD BE MADE TO MAKE THE VEHICLE SAFE. SECOND, GMC HAS A FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY TO COMPENSATE FOR DAMAGES CAUSED BY THE MALFUNCTION OF THE FACTORY EQUIPMENT. RESEARCH INTO THIS SITUATION HAS FOUND INFORMATION INDICATING GMC IS WELL AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND THAT THIS IS NOT AN ISOLATED INCIDENT.
