1999 GMC Suburban 1500 Questions
When making a left turn or going around a turn toward the left the steering will lock for a few seconds then release. You can feel a jerk when it releases. I have had upper ball joints replaced and had an alignment recently. What would cause this?
The vehicle makes a high pitch whine when braking to a stop. Once stopped it feels like the brakes are stuck and the check engine light flashes on. It will go away if the brake pedal is pumped.

typical gm quality, the doorhandles break, heater work when it wants to and has no safety features for children other than front control door locks. front end goes out and breaks dont hold up. the motor on other hand has 160,000 and runs like new. be nice to get out of a big rig without rolling window down in winter.
Basically a safe vehicle but typical GM poor quality; door handle fell off, plastic interior parts broke easily, A/C compressor went out at 52,000 mi., door light spring switch fell off, right turn signal doesn't cancel, daytime running lamps no longer operational AND most importantly the BRAKE SYSTEM ANTILOCK SENSOR IS MALFUNCTIONING. Next time, go to Honda or Toyota
I haven't had any problems with the truck as a second vehicle I had over 190,000 miles on it when I got it. It fits the old family and it keeps them quiet with the tv and sound system in the back.
