 Description of the problemOn 9-19-2014 the truck was stopped at a red light and started to inch forward. Slight pressure on the brake pedal stopped the movement. The event was so quick and slight i thought nothing about it. I turned on the freeway and drove 30 or 40 miles before touching the brake pedal again. When i did it went almost to the floor without slowing the truck speed any appreciable amount. At that point i knew i had a serious problem. I geared the truck down and was able to avoid being involved in an accident. If i had needed to come to a full and fast stop it could easily have been a disaster. An internet search revealed gm has had this problem for some time without notice to truck owners that it exists. An inspection of the brake lines was done and indicated a failure in the brake line system due to rust. The fuel lines showed the same kind of deterioration. Pictures can be provided to verify the lack of advanced rust conditions to the underneath of the truck other than the brake line system, the fuel line system, and the drive shaft. The truck was purchased new in south carolina and has been driven there 90% on the total mileage on it.
