Brakes sticking

I have a 2008 GXP and have experienced my brakes sticking on several occasions. On very heavy braking the brakes engage and then do not release. This happened once at a restaurant with the valet and several times in traffic. It seems that the brake pedal if pushed too firmly will stick in the down position. Has anyone else experienced this condition?

How many miles do you have on your car? Do you drive it regularly or store it?

Hello,

I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing a concern with your vehicle's brakes sticking. Please let me know if I can assist you with general questions about GM products, warranty and recall questions, or locating a dealer. All you have to do is private message me.

Safe Travels,

Jennifer T.,

My Solstice has 45,000 miles on it and is driven frequently. It sure seems like a mechanical issue with the brake pedal or linkage...

I know the LNF cobalts suffered from this in the rear brakes.

Some of the slider pins were not lubed correctly from the factory. There is a tsb on it somewhere.
