Well looks like I'm not the only one. I too have a colorado and last night at 38,001 miles my fault light came on also. I hate to think about how much this is going to cost, why at 38k, why is everyone having the same problem as I and chevy has not taken care of it? Do i go out and buy A Toyota? Oh that's right I have an 88 toyota p/u and have never had a problem with that, shame on you American made cars.

I've got an 06 Colorado with 22,000 miles. ABS fault alarm has been going off and on for the past few day. At 22k this shouldn't happen. Just wanted to vent my frustration, maybe GM will recall.

#161 of 379 abs and all the other junk on these trucks

My advice to everyone is to save your money,live with the abs issues and don't hold out any hope for help from the online customer service. Have replaced 5 front hubs and abs sensors. The bearings last a short time even if you are careful to torque the hubs to specs. The sensors are a joke and start acting up almost immediately and at all different times and conditions. The last fan resister just went again after 3 months of very little use because the truck can't stay on the road it is always breaking. Just finished complete brake system repair,and I mean complete down to all new hardware,wheel cylinders, calipers, rotors, hoses,everything. It has been less than a 1000 miles and the pass. front is hanging, abs is again intermittent and now the tranny is starting to bang into second. This is on a truck with 69000 miles now. Wait to you get to work on the rear brakes with the engineering marvel, horseshoe shaped brake shoe spring anchor. I swear that GM's engineers must be smoking something, or there must be a special tool for this peach of an idea. Customer service is not really concerned just pretends. Has anyone had GM help them out and solved just the brake issues on these nitemare systems? Good luck everyone I am looking to go Ford, can't keep this frustrating piece of design incompetence much longer!!!!!!

Its terrible that so many people are having the same ABS problem with no resolution from the manufacturer. I bought the truck because it was "very reliable" and only had 15000 miles on it. Now with just over 25000 there is a problem with it which equals 4 of my monthly payments! I can't afford to fix it and there is no warranty because I'm the second owner. No brakes can mean dead drivers, even though I only drive 3-4 miles a day its still a concern.

I filed a safety complaint with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), hoping that GM will realize there is a defect. I don't know if will do any good but it doesn't hurt to try.

What was the procedure for filing the complaint as I would like to also. Everyone who owns one of these gems should too. Thanks,Keith

I apologize for the problems you are experiencing with your vehicle. I would encourage you to have the vehicle diagnosed by your local GM dealership. Please keep me posted when the problem has been taken care of.

Here is the link for filing a complaint. https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/
I just got my Colorado back from dealership and it was diagnosed with a defective left front speed sensor. I was given an estimate on best & worst case scenario to fix ($320/$700). Technician also told me that they have never had a "best case scenario." He told me that this was a defect in the Colorado's. He actually used the word "defect". I chose not to fix, I just don't think this should happen on any vehicle with 22k. I hope more people will file complaints and maybe GM will do a recall.
