SERVICE BRAKES

4/20/2019 - ANN ARBOR, MI
VEHICLE IS 2015 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN PURCHASED NEW IN DECEMBER 2015. BUILD DATE WAS JULY 2015. CURRENT MILEAGE ~51,000. VEHICLE CONDITION = PAMPERED. THERE ARE NO WARNING LAMPS ILLUMINATED NOW OR AT TIME OF INCIDENT. AT LOW SPEEDS (~10 MPH), BRAKE PEDAL CAN BECOME EXCESSIVELY FIRM, AND EVEN WITH EXTREME PRESSURE APPLIED, BRAKES FAIL TO STOP THE VEHICLE EFFECTIVELY. I AM 6'3" AND 220LBS, AND YESTERDAY, IT TOOK ALL MY EFFORT TO KEEP VEHICLE FROM ROLLING INTO VEHICLE IN FRONT OF ME WHILE IDLING THRU DRIVE THRU. I'M RARELY SCARED DRIVING A VEHICLE, BUT THIS WAS SCARY. IF A PEDESTRIAN WOULD HAVE WALKED IN FRONT ON THE VEHICLE, I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO STOP. PUSHING WITH MY MAXIMUM EFFORT, SUBURBAN TOOK SEVERAL FEET TO STOP FROM AN IDLE CRAWL SPEED. WHEN THIS OCCURS, PEDAL FEELS "HARD" AND HAS ALMOST NO STROKE. HARD PEDAL / COMPROMISED BRAKES LASTED ~4 MINUTES BEFORE CONDITION "CORRECTED" ITSELF. THIS OCCURRED 4/19/2019. I'VE DRIVEN VEHICLES WITHOUT POWER BRAKES (BY DESIGN). EFFORT REQUIRED TO STOP SUBURBAN WITH THIS CONDITION IS MULTIPLE TIMES HIGHER THAN THOSE VEHICLES. IS GM DOING ANYTHING ABOUT THIS BRAKE SYSTEM FAILURE? AT PARKING LOT SPEEDS WHERE THIS OCCURS, SOMEONE COULD BE KILLED DUE TO THIS FAILURE.

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

4/19/2019 - OAK PARK, IL
CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON DUE TO INTERMITTENT HIGH-PRESSURE FUEL PUMP LEAK. WHILE GM HAS RECALLED SOME VEHICLES FOR THIS PROBLEM UNDER RECALL SB-10057680-1621, BULLETIN, 14858. GM IS NOT COVERING THE REPAIR, EVEN THOUGH THE ISSUES MATCH THE RECALL FOR SIMILAR MODEL YEAR VEHICLES. THE LIGHT CAME ON WHILE THE VEHICLE WAS DRIVING.

SERVICE BRAKES

4/9/2019 - VANCOUVER, WA
TOOK VEHICLE TO DEALER TO FIND SOURCE OF LOUD TAPPING NOISE. DEALER SAID IT WAS AN UNUSUALLY NOISY BRAKE VACUUM BOOSTER, BUT WAS OPERATING NORMALLY. 3 DAYS LATER, AS I ROLLED INTO A DRIVE THROUGH, THE BRAKE PEDAL BECAME VERY HARD AND THE VEHICLE WAS VERY HARD TO STOP. I AM ABLE TO REPLICATE THE PROBLEM WITH CONSISTENCY. AT LOW ENGINE SPEED, THE BRAKES BECOME HARD TO PUSH AFTER 4 OR 5 PEDAL APPLICATIONS. THE POWER BOOSTER IS NOT GETTING ENOUGH VACUUM AT LOW ENGINE SPEEDS TO MAINTAIN SAFE BRAKING PRESSURES.

AT TIMES, IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO BRAKE THE VEHICLE. IT REQUIRES AN INCREASED EFFORT TO DEPRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL AT LOW SPEEDS. THIS IS SIMILAR TO AN INVESTIGATION THAT IS ON GOING REGARDING A FAILING VACUUM PUMP FOR GMM MODEL VEHICLES.

A KNOWEN ISSUE WITH THE SUBURBAN- DEAD LIFTERS, OFTEN THE DEALERSHIPS DON+T WANT TO REPAIR THE ENGINE, THEY TELL CUSTOMERS TO GET A NEW OR REBUILD ENGINE. THE ISSUE IS A HIDDEN SECRET WHICH I HOPE WITH THIS COMPLAINT GM WILL COME CLEAN AND RECALL MILLION OF CARS ON THE ROAD WITH THIS DEFECT.
