Brake grinding noise
When i drive my buick enclave after it sits for any length of time, if i apply the brakes, i have a loud grinding type sound and i notice the noise continues as i do my shopping and it does not always go away. I took this vehicle to the buick dealership and i was told that general motors is aware of the problem and they (gm) were trying to find a solution to the noise. Also, i was told that i can continue to drive this vehicle as it would pose no safety issues. I find it unnerving to drive a vehicle with noisy brakes and i inquired when gm finds a fix will i be contacted? I was told to call back periodically to see how gm has decided to correct the noise problem. As of this writing i have only 684 miles on this buick enclave. I do feel this issue is worthy of consideration by the nhtsa 05/05/2021
TL* THE CONTACT OWNS A 2015 Buick Encore. THE CONTACT STATED THAT WHILE STOPPED ON AN INCLINE, THE TRANSMISSION SLIPPED OUT OF GEAR AND ROLLED BACKWARDS AFTER RELEASING THE BRAKE PEDAL. THERE WAS NO WARNING LIGHT ILLUMINATED. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO LOVE BUICK GMC (736 SATURN PKWY, COLUMBIA, SC 29212) AND THE CONTACT WAS INFORMED THAT THE FAILURE WAS A KNOWN ISSUE HOWEVER, THERE WAS NO RECALL ON THE VIN FOR THE FAILURE. THE MANUFACTURER WAS NOT MADE AWARE OF THE FAILURE. THE VEHICLE WAS NOT YET REPAIRED. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS APPROXIMATELY 20,000.
Almost crashed my vehicle on highway. When to tap my brakes and brake assist came on then my brakes completely stopped working all together. Even when i attempted to push my brake pedal down it was hard as a rock barely made it into the shoulder with my hazards on. Attempted to pump the pedal nothing - shut the vehicle off and let it sit for 5 minutes to restart still no brakes or ability to stop vehicle. Scariest thing to happen. Have to get vehicle towed
Twice in the last month, i have been driving in motion less than 5 mph, and the car accelerated by itself. I had to slam on the brakes to stop it. The tires screeched. Very scary as it accelerated fast, lurching forward. Both times in a cat lot.
