It’s a crappy design. The pump is made in China or Mexico. I can’t remember what the back of it said.

So is a lot of the other stuff in the vehicle. I used to haul wiring harnesses from the border that were made in Mexico by American Yazaki going to GM assembly plants. And that doesn't even begin to cover what goes on. I occasionally haul gears made in China and brought into Chicago to a finishing plant in Nebraska and from there to a supply warehouse in Bellevue, MI that provides CV axles and transmission components to the OEM's.

And since GM's vehicles sales in China now exceed the U.S. market, and GM is doing a lot of production there, you can bet components from China will increase.


Weeeeee! Good news all around! I knew I should have looked for a 67-72 instead of buying a 17...lol

You can also buy a 2019 with IBC electric assisted brakes! No boosters or pumps to fail!

Just replaced my vacuum pump today. I work at a repair shop so I get a discount on parts. I just bought the truck on saturday and realized the part was bad on my test drive, but the dealership wasn't willing to fix it for me or help me at all. The deal was too good to pass on even with the bad vacuum pump. I paid $122 for the pump and it took about an hour to install. I may try to get a reimbursement from GM if I get the extended warranty note from them. I don't see how this isn't a safety recall though, brakes are a pretty important thing and cars aren't designed to be driven without power assisted brakes. I like how they say the brakes may require additional pedal effort to stop when in reality without power assist your truck will barely stop at all.

A dealership sold you a truck with an actual known faulty booster/brake system?! And would not repair it prior to the sale? Something seems very off there.

That's for sure. I would have been happy with them giving me a good deal on the part to install myself, but they wouldn't even do that. They said they were selling it so cheap they couldn't fix it without charging me more. Needless to say I will be leaving a glowing review of the dealership.

Yeah I would have quickly walked away from that dealer.

If the truck wasn't such a good deal and I wasn't a mechanic I probably would have. I will definitely never buy another vehicle from them and I left a less than perfect review on Google. I was under the assumption that being safe to drive was a requirement for selling a vehicle at a dealership, apparently I was wrong.

My notice arrived in the mail today. A lot of good extending the "warranty?" out to 6 years from purchase or 72,000 miles "which ever comes first".....................since my truck has just over 60,000 miles in just under 3 years of ownership.

It's a way for them to seem proactive in case it turns into a recall or a lawsuit.
