STEERING: HYDRAULIC POWER ASSIST: PUMP

9/19/2005 - BOTHELL, WA
IN LATE JUNE 2005, MY WIFE WAS DRIVING OUR 2000 SUBURBAN. DURING A TURNING MANEUVER HER POWER STEERING WENT OUT. THE DEALER DOING THE REPAIR SAID A POWER STEERING ROD HAD BROKEN, AND IT COST JUST UNDER $800 TO REPAIR. LATER, I SAW NHTSA RECALL ID 05V005000, WHICH REPORTS BROKEN SHAFTS IN POWER STEERING PUMPS ON SOME SUBURBAN MODELS. I CALLED THE DEALER AND WAS TOLD MY VEHICLE WAS NOT INVOLVED IN THE RECALL, BUT THE SIMILARITY SEEMS TOO STRONG TO UNDERSTAND WHY THIS WOULD BE THE CASE. MY VIN IS [XXX]. UPDATED 07/18/2012 INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)

SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC: FOUNDATION COMPONENTS: DISC: ROTOR

8/17/2005 - MOHNTON, PA
I TOOK MY 2000 SUBURBAN TO THE GARAGE BEFORE LEAVING ON VACATION IN JUNE OF 2004 BOTH BACK ROTORS NEEDED REPLACED. BOTH WERE SO RUSTED THEY COULDN'T BE MACHINED. THEY HAD TO BE REPLACED. THEN IN JULY OF 2005 BEFORE GOING ON VACATION BOTH FRONT ROTORS WERE RUSTED. THEY MUST BE REPLACED ALSO. BECAUSE OF THE ROTORS BEING SO RUSTED IT CAUSED THE BACK BRAKES TO BECOME WORN OUT AND NOW THEY NEED TO BE REPLACED ALSO. YOU SPEND OVER $35,000 DOLLARS ON A VEHICLE SO YOU CAN BE SAFE AND HAVE A SAFE VACATION AND BEFORE YOU LEAVE IT COSTS YOU HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS. YOU WOULD THINK THAT FOR THE PRICE YOU SPEND ON THESE VEHICLES, THAT THE COMPANY COULD AT LEAST USE METAL THAT WOULD NOT RUST AND FALL APART WITHIN 50,000 MILES.
