Chevrolet/GM issued a service bulletin on 05/27/2021 regarding the composition of the brake material may cause a grinding noise. The Service Bulletin No.: PIT5805B explains the issue may occur after being parked overnight and the noise may be described as “a grind, growl, squeak or squeal noise.” The bulletin goes on to instruct dealers to not replace any parts or attempt any repairs at this time” and to communicate that “the vehicle is safe to drive” to the customer.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has already logged six consumer complaints regarding this problem on the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer in the last several months.

Many complaints state they brought their Blazer to the dealership and the dealership was unable to repair per instructions by the manufacturer, GM.

The contact owns a 2021 Chevrolet Blazer. The stated that upon depression of the brake pedal, an abnormal grinding noise would emit from the vehicle without warning. When the contact notified the dealer of the failure, he was informed that they were aware of the failure however, there was no fix for the failure. The contact then received a letter from the dealer where he was informed that a repair was under development. Recently, the contact called the dealer for an update and was informed that no update was available and that the repair remained unavailable. The manufacturer had yet to be notified of the failure. The vehicle had yet to be repaired.

Vehicle only has 700 miles and there is a loud brake grinding noise when slowly down at speeds of around 40 MPH.

Other complaints note they feel unsafe while driving the vehicle with this issue:

Car purchased on 5/19/21 with 117 miles on it. It now has 1153 miles and the brakes are grinding. The Chevy dealership states that it needs replacement brake pads, but they are on backorder. I have been uncomfortable driving the car after the dealership said it needed new brake pads and have not driven the car for two days. I can get by another four days, but I have a Dr’s appointment this coming Wednesday that requires a 50 mile trip.

The brakes are noisy (like metal to metal, worn out) and the brake pedal is soft. Took the vehicle into the dealer (only 1,000 miles on odometer) they say GM is aware of a problem. How many people will die before this problem is fixed? The problem isn’t corrected, and exists today.
