I have a 2000 Yukon XL (29,000 miles) which has been less than trouble-free,
much to my regret.
The latest problem is that at very low speeds (~3 mph) as you continue to
apply the brakes to stop the truck on dry pavement the ABS kicks in and
prevents a normal stop.
There is a NHTSA case on this and a recall has been ordered in Canada, but
not yet the US. GM has a technical bulletin on this and basically the
problem is one of corrosion on an unprotected part that is necessary for the
ABS to work properly (I live in Michigan - as bad weather as Canada for
sure). The fix is to take the brakes apart and sand off the corrosion. I
have contacted GM Customer Assistance about this and was told to have the
car examined by a GMC dealer. That is being done.
I'd like to know if any other US readers of this group have experienced a
similar problem and whether they were able to get GM to do what they are
already doing in Canada -- fix the problem at GM's expense.
