 P 30 chassis auto park brakes locks when shifting from drive to reverse, this happen after driving for some distance and unit being up to normal temperature.first time ths happen 300 plus miles from home and five days in the shop and with a charge of $880.08 and then left the shop with the same problem i had when going there ,had to leave for home cutting our trip short because no one seem to know what to do to correct our problem.i contacted g. m. customer service several times without any support or concern what so ever.after return home i went to several g. m. truck service centers and only one would attempt to guess the cause and stated they would have to start by replacing parts which amounts to 13 , after the $1880.08 already spents and problem not fixed i was not eager to let them start replacing parts again and having a unknown cost without assurance of correcting problem. this is the 2th time within 34,000 with auto park brakes problems. ( 1st time to be filed on another complaint form ) i know of a number of other p 30 owners who has experience auto park brakes problems and are very unhappy with general motors because they dont seem to care about our safety or cost. hope you will review all complaints and consider our request. thank you.
