Latest GMC 2500 Problem Reports

2005 Gmc 2500 - 1GTHK29G75E- Hamburg, NY: August 20th, 2012
The 2005 gmc 2500hd fwd (well maintained and oiled to prevent corrosion) experienced a failure while towing my 24' pursuit fishing boat (7200 lbs. ) home from sturgeon point marina to hamburg, ny 14075 (approximately 10 miles) with "minimal" stopping capability as the dot 3 brake fluid was being expelled. I had to feature the throttle to negotiate stopping senarios without issue. As of 8/20/12, this vehicle is with fuccillo chevrolet, inc. (grand island, ny) for overhaul of entire braking system; including fuel lines. The certified technician suggested the entire brake lines system be replaced along with the fuel lines due to extreme corrosion. All this work is being performed since the excellent condition of the vehicle. The estimate for this work is approximately $2250 to replace all lines (brake / gas) affected by severe corrosion. This condition is a result of poor material selection not capable of withstanding normal winter conditions found in the northeast. The same standards should be used as selecting exhaust system material. Brakes can kill you.... Exhaust systems can not! Final note: truck driven 50 miles per week to work (10 miles each day). During winter months, the residual salt is rinsed as required on a weekly basis (or sooner) to prevent corrosion. This truck prior to winter driving has had oil applied to the underframe, apparently, the brake / fuel line where not adequately treated.

2002 Gmc 2500 - 1GNDT13W9T2- Sussex, NJ: August 19th, 2012
First the transmission cooling lines rusted out costing over 400. 00 to repair. Today the brake lines failed because of rust. This will be a very expensive repair. I was fortunate that i was able to avoid crashing the truck when the brakes failed.

2004 Gmc 2500 - 1GTHK23G84F- Williamstown, KY: July 25th, 2012
Leaving small rural road. Brake pedal went to floor and vehicle rolled through stop sign. No oncoming traffic. Upon inspection, left forward brake line had ruptured due to corrosion. Only matter of time before other brake lines will fail.

2005 Gmc 2500 - 1GTHK29245E- Fairlee, VT: July 21st, 2012
Brake pedal went to the floor. Inspection discovered that all the vehicle brake lines were rusted, some to the point of leaking brake fluid.

2004 Gmc 2500 - 1GTHK29U74E- Stroudsburg, PA: July 12th, 2012
I bought this truck from dealer with 40151 miles. I have this truck from 2007 to present time with the mileage at 51,000 miles. The truck has been used for personal use only. I feel that there should be a investigation into this problem because this will effect millions of gm trucks. This problem will cost over $1000. To fix because of possible fire,engine failure, emissions problems, other very costly problems that will relate to the bolts breaking off from defect on the exhaust manifold. This can cause very serious problems. (this is as serious as the toyota car problems or worse). I also think with the new air emissions standards these trucks will not pass the inspections. Because of the exhaust leaks on the motor. There is no doubt i feel this should & can be a class action suit. Gm knows of this defect of the bolt but still no recall. Why must it take someone to get killed or hurt before they fix the problem. I don't have thousands to fix this problem & now when i drive i am worried about the truck going on fire. Gm must do the right thing to correct the problem the caused. Please keep me informed. Thank [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6).

2004 Gmc 2500 - 1GTHK29U04E- Chantilly, VA: April 18th, 2012
Second brake problem, second of three brake line problems from rusty brake lines and brake line failure while stopping and lose of brakes, needing to use emergency brake to stop. All remaining brake lines are completely rusted and need to be replaced for safe driving. This is completely unacceptable and are unsafe driving conditions. Brake lines should never fail from rust, period. *js

2003 Gmc 2500 - 3D3KU28D93G- Inwood, WV: October 21st, 2006
I purchased a 2003 dodge ram quad cab truck from parsons ford in martinsburg wv. It was sold to me in an unsafe condition. The upper and lower ball joints are shot. The tires are cupped. The vehicle bounces when exceeding 45 mph. The inspection sticker had been removed and replaced which invalidates it therefore it was sold to me without a valid inspection. I have tried to return the vehicle on three separate occasions within days of purchasing it. Parsons ford refuses to take the vehicle back stating they did nothing wrong. No repairs have been made at this time. *nm
