approx. may, 2009 while traveling, i applied the brake on my uplander and the abs light went on. it would not go out unless the vehicle was shut down. the brake feel was hard at first and then it slipped as if i was traveling on snow to keep the wheels from locking. the pavement was dry. this was the first time that this has occurred and i have had it back to the dealer 3 other times since, but they cannot find or fix the problem. i feel that this is a safety issue that gm should address. the current mileage is 77,000. *tr

the placement of the rear brake lines on this van are right under the frame, so when im driving and the van is going up and down due to bumps in the road the frame cuts into the brake line and eventually brakes the line causing them to leak and me having horrible brakes. i've had to replace the brake lines two times already and the brake lines on there now are already starting to leak again. this is caused by a poor placement of the brake line and there's no way of fixing it. *tr

several times now i have received a reduced engine power message, as well as periodic service stability trak and service abs. this seems to happen when i make a tight turn or hit a rough patch in the road. the most recent time this happened, i could not get rid of the reduced engine power and consequent reduced speed. i felt that it was dangerous to drive the van to the dealer so i had it towed. now they cannot replicate the problem. i am scared to drive it until i am assured that it is fixed. i can see online that many gm cars seem to have this problem, yet when i called the gm customer support line, she was not able to find a bulletin or recall for this issue. this is dangerous - i am so worried that this will happen on the highway. *tr

brakes intermittently apply themselves without warning. happened previous to this incident several times at lower speeds. i'm not sure if brake lights activate when this happens making this a highly dangerous situation. dealer had vehicle three weeks, charged for labor and parts, then stated that they thought they had the problem fixed but couldn't get the automatic traction control light to go out or the dic to not display service stability system. vehicle was okay for about four weeks then brakes started activating at low speed again. contacted gm, they refuse to help because vehicle has "branded" title. suggested i take it back to same dealer and pay them to diagnose a problem they can't fix. *tr

i have had nothing but problems with this car. i have had brake issues the front sensor wires got snagged and shut down while driving. it had turned on and off a few times once as i slammed on the brakes, i almost rear ended the car in front of me. the fuel system has needed a new wire harness that had burnt up at 108,000 miles, the tuning port needed to be replaced around the same time as well as an evap canister. now at 140,000 miles the transmission went out. they have blocked me from reporting on facebook how the cars are awful but i am now writing everyone i can about the autos they pass of as american car.

i own a 2006 chevy uplander i noticed that when coming from stop it would pull and would pop to go so i have had it checked numerous times have replaced c.v joints, strut mounds struts shocks and still was having the same problem so then i went and replaced all brakes and rotors i have had to replace them 5 times within a year and half i have given up so now the back ones are doing it again but yesterday the brake light came on this is the first time i have the i also have the van saying emergency brake is on, funny thing now is that when i go and push on it. it don't lock i release my foot off it and it comes right back up to the unlock position but breaks are locked and cant be moved. so i on here looking at all the complaints and i think i know the problem to the one for the breaks the emergency brake lines and pedals as well as lines should be replaced and rotor and brakes by dealership as recall due to the fact that this is not wear and tear on a vehicle it is malfunction of emergency brake. *tr
