IN APPROXIMATELY, JULY, 2000, (UNFORTUNATELY, I CANNOT REMEMBER THE EXACT DATE) THE ANTI-LOCK BRAKE LIGHT CAME ON ON THE SAID VEHICLE. I CHECKED THE WEBSITES FOR BOTH CHEVROLET AND NHTSA TO SEE IF ANY RECALLS HAD BEEN CALLED. ON THE WEBSITE IT STATED THAT THERE HAD BEEN FOR 1991-1996. WHEN I CONTACTED CHEVROLET VIA TELEPHONE, THEY DENIED THAT THIS INFORMATION WAS ON THEIR WEBSITE AND STATED THAT IT WAS ONLY UP TO THE YEAR 1995. THEY STATED THAT THEY WOULD HAVE TO HAVE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF COMPLAINTS BEFORE A RECALL COULD BE MADE ON A CERTAIN VEHICLE YEAR. I STATED MY FRUSTRATION WITH THE REPRESENATIVE AND TOLD HER THAT I WOULD MAKE EVERY ATTEMPT TO RECEIVE WHAT I FELT I WAS DUE. AFTER SEVERAL CALLS AND HEADACHES, THEY FINALLY SENT A RECALL NOTICE. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO GIBSON CHEVROLET IN SOUTH HOLLAND, ILLINOIS WHO REPLACED A SWITCH AND SAID THEY WERE DONE. WHEN I BEGAN TO LEAVE, I NOTICED THAT THE ANTI-LOCK LIGHT WAS STILL ON. I WENT BACK INTO THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT AND TOLD THEM THAT THE LIGHT WAS STILL ON AND THE GENTLEMAN STATED THAT WHAT THEY HAD REPAIRED WOULD NOT PREVENT THE LIGHT FROM BEING ON. AFTER SEVERAL CONVERSATIONAL CIRCLES, I QUESTIONED WHETHER OR NOT THE VEHICLES ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM WAS OPERATIONAL AND I WAS TOLD “NO” ” WE COULD RUN A DIAGNOSTIC CHECK , BUT YOU WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR IT.” NOW, IT WAS AROUND THE SAME TIME THAT I REPORTED THAT MY LIGHT HAD COME ON WHEN THE BRAKING SYSTEM FAILED. IN ADDITION TO THAT I HAD APPROXIMATELY 7 BRAKE PAD CHANGES IN A PERIOD OF 16 MONTHS AT A LOCAL REPAIR SHOP. MY CONCERN IS THAT IF THE LIGHT CAME ON AT THE TIME RECALLS WERE BEING MADE, WHY DOES THIS VEHICLE NOT QUALIFY FOR NOT ONLY THE SWITCH TO BE REPAIRED BUT FOR THE ENTIRE SYSTEM. AT THIS TIME, I AM EXTREMELY CONCERNED THAT SINCE THE ANTI-LOCKS ARE NON-FUNCTIONAL AND THE PADS CONTINUE TO WEAR, THAT I MAY BE IN DANGER. THEY SHOW MINIMAL CONCERN TO THE WELFARE OF THEIR CLIENTS. I FEEL ROBBED AS WELL AS CHEATED. PLEASE HELP ME.*AK Date Reported:July 01, 2000. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1GNDT13W7T2. Car problem was reported in CALUMET CITY, IL. Vehicle was purchased on 19970601. Vehicle was using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was using Cruise Control. Drive type:4WD. FUEL TYPE: GAS.
