car   Brake Electric Antilock problem of GMC Sierra

The car was a 2001 GMC Sierra. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is 1GTEK19TX1_. Sirs/madam; since new the brakes have been spongy. They work but, I am always on alert. The abs has never worked properly. I have replaced the front rotors with grooved and relieved with drilled holes. I have replaced the brake lining all around. With no difference. My pickup is equipped with rotors. I have complained to the dealership where I bought the pickup. Was told the is/was no warranty implied for braking systems. I have had the brake fluid flushed, still no difference. I am very easy on the braking system. I have an automatic trans and I use it like a standard. The only problem with the brakes that I could think of, might be the equalizer valve. I am only a novice with these brakes even though I am a mechanic by trade. Pertaining to the park brake. After a fashion and $246 spent at the dealership where they said I had left the park brake on, which I did not, I figured out what the problem was. The contact surface for the park brake lining was egg shaped. I had it machined, re-installed the components and my park brake was now functional. From new, I was unable to use the park brake because it never worked. Now the park brake holds my pickup. To wit a few years past there was law suit which I joined because of this very problem. I did receive compensation which made up for the cost at the dealership for "repairs". I understand this 12 years in the making but, the braking problem persists. Thank you for your time and working on keeping the highways as safe as possible. It was Wednesday, July 11, 2001 when this brake electric antilock issue occurred.

car   Brake Electric Antilock problem of Mitsubishi Raider

The vehicle involved was a 2006 Mitsubishi Raider. I have had (2) occasions when I applied my brakes hard suddenly and lost control of my vehicle because it continued to slide. I took it in to have it inspected and the service technician did confirm that my vehicle does exactly what I stated and he informed me that I have abs brakes on the rear and not on the front and therefore a sudden, forceful stop will cause my front wheels to lock up. This has been stated in writing on the service sheet. Therefore, when the front wheels lock up, the vehicle slides and I lose control. I called Mitsubishi and they said that it is normal for the brakes to function this way and there are no problems. I find this very unacceptable and I am now very fearful of having to make a sudden stop. There have been recalls on certain of these vehicles (raiders) but I was told mine was not one of them. However, I seem to experience exactly what the recalled vehicles experience. It was Jun. 2, 2006 when this brake electric antilock issue happened.

car   Brake Electric Antilock problem of Nissan Maxima

2006 Nissan Maxima. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle braking system the consumer stated the abs on the right and left wheels of the vehicle would engage as he depressed the brake pedal at a time when the roadway was clear and dry, and his speed was in excess of 40 mph. Upon taking the vehicle to the dealer, the consumer learned there was a defect. The defect caused water/moisture to be retained in the rear hub assembly, resulting in corrosion to the hub assembly and causing the abs to engage when it should not have been. In December 2010, the dealer performed a procedure where they cut a drain channel to allow water to drain out of the right rear hub assembly. This corrected the problem. However, the dealer acknowledged it was a problem on Nissan models. When the consumer inquired about whether it would happen on the left side of the vehicle, the dealer stated it was possible. In January 2011, the dealer performed the same procedure on the left side as they did for the right side. However, after having the service done, they determined the abs was still engaging. Upon further investigating it was determined that the continuing problem was due to the left rear wheel bearing assembly having become so corroded with water and moisture that it had to be replaced. This problem occurred on Dec. 1, 2010.

car   Brake Electric Antilock problem of SAAB 95

The vehicle involved was a 2006 SAAB 9-5. No specific events lead to the failure of the brake system. The brake system is marginally functional and has been since the car was purchased new. The rear brake rotors began to wear showing visible grooving at approximately 1200 miles while the front rotors still show no signs of wear or grooving at 4800 miles. Improper brake performance is further evidenced by the rapid accumulation of brake dust on the surface of the rear wheels wnd only slight accumulation of brake dust on the front wheels. The vehicle is also quite unstable and difficult to keep within the traffic lane during emergency braking maneuvers from speeds of approximately 60 mph or higher. Nothing has been done to correct the failure. The dealership has been contacted and notified of the problem. They acknowledged the problem and reported that others have filed the same complaint. The front/rear braking force is automatically controlled by the vehicle control system. The manufacturer's service department has told me there is nothing they can do to remedy the problem. The vehicle is leased to me under a three year contract. I therefore have no option to sell it or terminate the lease and am legally bound to maintain payments on this unsafe vehicle for another 36 months.

car   Brake Electric Antilock problem of Subaru Tribeca

The car involved is a 2008 Subaru b9 Tribeca. Crash was involved with the Subaru b9 Tribeca. I was driving 70 mph on the right most northbound lane of I-75 at mile marker 452 in florida. The road had become wet from recent rain. The rear of my car suddenly started fishtailing to the right. The fishtail evolved into full-blown counterclockwise spins which took the car all the way to the guardrail in the middle shoulder. The impact resulted in the car being totaled. I believe a defect with the abs, electronic stability control system or the all wheel drive caused the accident. The road was perfectly straight, and I didn't apply the brakes or make any sudden steering changes. I reported the incident to Subaru and asked for an investigation of the wrecked car. Despite three letters and a complete report, the company refused to inspect the car. This problem occurred on 09/26/07.

car   Brake Electric Antilock problem of Subaru Outback

The abs on my 2005 Subaru Outback 2. 5i limited is too sensitive. It is dangerous driving in the snow because the abs kicks in too easily and it takes way too long to stop. I have recently gotten new tires with an excellent rating and that didn't help. Bumps in the road also set off the abs too easily leading to scary situations. I drive other vehicles with abs and this does not occur. I am not confident driving this vehicle in the snow, which is ironic because it is an awd Subaru (which is supposed to have an excellent reputation). Abs is supposed to benefit the driver, not help create a collision. It was February 12, 2006 when this brake electric antilock issue happened.
