Units with 4 wheel disk brakes may develop at situation where the park brake does not hold as it should. Our technicians tell us this can be caused by worn park brake shoes located inside the drum section of the rear brake disks.

    Took my tahoe to dealership today to have it inspected. Much to my surprise, was told didn't pass due to the emergency brake doesn't work. The pedal goes all the way to the floor. We were not aware of this problem because we basically never used it. Just purchased this vehicle from Parks Chevrolet in Kernersville, NC in January of this year. It was inspected when they got the vehicle beleive they had to know about it. There is no noise from the rear axle area at all. The dealership wanted 300 to 400.00 to repair. Could it just need the cable to be adjusted ?
