auto brake system with workhorse sucks it sometimes will get you stuck and many people don't understand the systems even GM tecks. My brother had one between the bosh brake problems and the thousands of bucks he spent on repairs trying to stay safe. GM put in the stupid transmission park system. Which was a make believe park because tranny never had park. Do you wounder why GM got out of market with class A's.


The Auto brake system was NEVER used on the W series Workhorse chassis.
It was used on the lighter P series chassis.
If he had the Auto Park brake in the P Chassis, he did not have the Bosch brake issues, which was unique to the W series chassis. .

He must have had brakes other than Bosch since the Bosch recall dealt with the swelling of the phenolic brake pistons not steel pistons. But as I said, if he had an autopark brake, he was NOT subject to the Bosch recall for the W series chassis since the autopark brake was never used on the W chassis.

rgatijnet1 is correct about his statements about the Bosch brakes, W chassis and the P series.
