Asked by Lynda Apr 25, 2008 at 11:06 PM about the 2007 GMC Sierra Classic 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

SINCE ALMOST NEW, WE HAD DIRT BUILDING UP BEHIND THE FRONT BRAKE PADS. THIS CAUSED QUITE  A GRINDING SOUND. WE DID NOT BY A 4 X 4 TO DRIVE ON PAVED ROADS. WORK AND CAMP ARE ON DIRT ROADS. MANY PROBLEMS WITH SERVICE MANAGER AT PROUSES, HE IS NOW GONE. BRAKES HAVE BEEN APART A FEW TIMES ALREADY AND CLEANED AND THEY EVEN TURNED THE ROTORS ONCE WITH UNDER 20000 KM. IT NOW HAS 37,000 KM AND THEY JUST PUT FRONT PADS AND ROTORS ON LOL. BUT THERE ISN'T SUPPOSED TO BE A PROBLEM
