Brake or Rotor Problems? Premature Wear?
Have you or are you currently having problems with your GM, Chevrolet, Oldsmobile or Pontiac brakes or brake rotors? You are not alone! 1000's of other consumers have had to replace their brakes or brake rotors due to premature wear. According to Autoweb's Reliability and Satisfaction Ratings:
- 28% of Chevrolet Impala owners reported problems with their brakes or brake rotors. See Autoweb Report.
- 44% of Chevrolet Malibu owners reported problems with their brakes or brake rotors. See Autoweb Report.
- And a whopping 51% of Oldsmobile Alero owners reported problems with their brakes or rotors. See Autoweb Report.
Some of the most common reported brake problems include: brakes squealing or grinding, brakes and/or steering wheel pulsing and rotors pitting, rusting, distorting, wobbling or warping. Many of these problems are due to excessive heat, rapid cooling. Additionally, the excessive wear and tear may be attributed to reports that an inferior metal composite has been used in the manufacture of the brake rotors, which were made smaller and thinner, and therefore, less able to absorb peak heat without problems.
What's most alarming is the frequency with which the brake problems reappear. After having their brakes and rotors replaced, consumers report the pulsing, grinding and squealing reoccurring within 3000 - 7000 miles, eventually leading to yet another replacement, which falls well short of GM's guideline of brakes being expected to last 12 months/12,000 miles.
The brake problems affect a wide range of 1997 - 2003 GM cars and trucks, including Chevrolet Malibu and Impala, Pontiac Grand Am and Grand Prix, Oldsmobile Cutlass and Alero and many other makes and models.
