Brake Fluid Leak problems of the 2004 GMC Sierra
Two problems associated with brake fluid leak have been reported for the 2004 GMC Sierra.
Brake Fluid Leak problem #1
The vehicle having this issue was a 2004 GMC Sierra. I left my house for work and approx. 3 blocks from my house I attempted to slow down to make a right hand turn. I pressed on the brakes and the pedal went all the way to the floor. I had no brakes. At this time and this was the first time, the brake light on the dash came on. I was driving at 30 mph with no brakes, I coasted into a parking lot and used the parking brake to stop the truck. Outside and under the drivers door of the 2004 Sierra extended cab there was brake fluid leaking. The 8 year old truck had rusted brake lines that failed. My concern is that I lost all brakes without warning. After a little research I noticed many of these trucks have the same problem. They are 5000 pound torpedos on the road and without warning. Will something be done before a serious accident occurs? I tried contacting GMC via their website e-mail but an error message occurred. Try a complaint on their site. . . . . It don't work!!!. This brake fluid leak issue occurred Fri., Aug. 31, 2012.
