car   Parking Brake problem of Chevrolet Avalanche

The car involved was a 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche. VIN of the vehicle was 3GNEK13T42_. Parking brake worn out and rotor rusted at 36ooo miles. I don't use the parking brake at all. Why was it worn out? rear brake pads also wore out before front pads. Design of parking brake makes adjustment almost impossible at the wheel. The cable cannot be adjusted enough to activate the parking brake. The parts man at the dealershipjust shrugged his shoulders and informed me that the only possible remedy is to replace both rotors, pads and parking brake shoes. This seems like a design flaw. This parking brake issue occurred Nov. 1, 2004.

It concerns an un-delivered emergency vehicle that plastiscol composites, that is being paid with fema funds under a federal grant and is trying to force a vibrating drive line problem vehicle to other companies without telling them. The vehicle is now over 930 days late, due to poorly engineering the drive line after installing a pto in the drive line to power the rear mounted pump. On numerous occasion, plastisol workers brought the vehicle to the repair shop to be inspected for acceptance, but on each occasion, numerous defects were noted including cold welds, loose parts poor assembly. And the most serious, was the drive line vibration that began at 40 mph and became worse. Plastisol workers admitted that they have no engineer assisting them to resolved the problem and don't know what to do. The is equivalent to NHTSA recall campaign # 10v092000. I would like you to investigate this vehicle and determine if the drive line vibration is safe and the vehicle is road worthy and won't cause the failure of the universal joints and a crash , which could jeopardize the lives of the firemen or the general public. I would like you to inspect all welds of the fabricated cross member . The pto is attached to and determine if they are within industry standards or poorly welded and unsafe. I would like you to investigate all trucks produced by plastisol. . . Updated 12/17/13. This issue happened on Wed., May. 16, 2012.
