2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid Review:
Have a 2008 Tahoe Hybrid. The brakes failed the first time causing us to rear-ended another vehicle. It was at low speed and there was no damage so no report was written. We thought it was a one-time thing until we started to drive off and the brakes failed again, sending us over a curb and into a nearby parking lot.
I took it to a dealer in Jacksonville, FL where they looked at it and found nothing wrong. They blamed it on wet roads...although it was not raining when the incident occurred.
A few days later after they found "nothing wrong", I was slowing for a red light and the brakes failed again. I almost hit another vehicle but was able to swerve at the last second...it scared the cr*p out of me. I pulled over, turned the car off and back on again and decided to try and make it home (about 2 miles). As I neared my home, the brakes failed again causing me to take a corner at approximately 40 mph.
Dealer took my vehicle back in and kept it for a few weeks. They replaced every brake part possible. After the repairs, one of the employees drove it home to test it and the brakes failed on him. I think they had my car in for about 3 - 4 weeks total.
So, here I am a month later and the brakes failed AGAIN! This time exiting from the interstate, slowing on an off-ramp...nearly crashing into another vehicle. This is madness. I will have it at the dealership tomorrow.
Oh, and when the brakes failed the last two times, I took pictures of the dash lights and readout for evidence. "Service Stabilitrak" seems to be the recurring theme. My email is Trock55 at hotmail.com if anyone wants to see the pics.
