2000 CHEROLET SUBURBAN AT SLOW SPEEDS WHEN BRAKING THE ABS IS ACTIVATED, WHICH INCREASES MY STOPPING DISTANCE. THIS CREATES THE POSSIBILITY OF HIT SOMETHING OR MORE IMPORTANTLY SOMEONE.

LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES: HATCHBACK/LIFTGATE: LOCK

7/2/2005 - BOSSIER CITY, LA
BACK WINDOW ON MY 2000 CHEVY SUBURBAN IS A LIFT HATCH WINDOW. IT HAS SEPARATED FROM THE HINGES, WE CAN'T OPEN IT ANYMORE AND I FEEL LIKE IT WILL SEPARATE TO THE POINT OF BEING BLOWN OFF AS I TRAVEL DOWN THE ROAD. I'VE TAKEN THE VEHICLE TO A LOCAL DEALER AND WAS TOLD THAT THEY WOULD HAVE TO REPLACE THE WHOLE CLASS INSTEAD OF FIXING THE SEPARATION OF THE HINGES AND THAT MY WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER GLASS REPLACEMENT. ALSO I TOOK THE TRUCK TO A LOCAL GLASS SHOP TO SEE WHAT THEY COULD DO AND WAS TOLD THAT HE HAD SEEN AT LEAST FOUR OTHER VEHICLES OF THE SAME MAKE THAT HAD THIS PROBLEM. I DON'T THINK THIS IS NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR; THIS IS A MANUFACTURES DEFECT THAT SHOULD BE LOOKED AT AND MAYBE A RECALL STARTED BY GM.

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE: DELIVERY: FUEL PUMP

6/27/2005 - GLENDALE, AZ
FUEL PUMP FAILED WHILE DRIVING ON INTERSTATE FREEWAY CAUSING ENGINE TO SHUT DOWN. THERE WAS NO WARNING, NO 'SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT', NO FUEL ODORS. CAR HAD A FULL TANK OF GAS, WAS DRIVING AT NORMAL SPEED (75MPH) ON FREEWAY WHEN ALL ENGINE POWER WAS LOST. CAR WAS TOWED TO CHEVROLET DEALER AND REPAIRED. THIS IS THE SECOND FUEL PUMP FOR THIS VEHICLE, THE ORIGINAL FUEL PUMP WAS REPLACED IN FEBRUARY 2004. NOTE THAT THERE IS A RECALL ON THE FUEL PUMP, ISSUED THIS YEAR, BUT NO DATE WHEN THE REPAIR WILL BE MADE.

SERVICE BRAKES, AIR: ANTILOCK: ABS WARNING LIGHT

6/8/2005 - HOLLY SPRINGS , NC
ABS/BRAKE LIGHT ILLUMINATES INTERMITTENTLY. DEALER SAYS BRAKE CONTROL MODULE MUST BE REPLACED AT COST OF $1100. THIS IS A POTENTIAL SAFETY ISSUE AND SHOULD BE COVERED BY WARRANTY IN MY OPINION AS THE ABS SYSTEM IS INOPERABLE WHEN THE LIGHT IS ON. I ALMOST WRECKED DRIVING IN RAIN ON JUNE 7, 2004 WHEN APPLYING BRAKES AND REAR LOCKED UP - NOT REALIZING ABS WAS NOT OPERABLE.
