No Brakes, Bad Electrical Systems

ReviewI've owned this 97 GMC z71 fullsize truck for about 2.5yrs. Had lots of repairs completed, listed are radiator, rear brake wheel cylinders (both sides) brake lines, alternator., water pump, egr valve, idler pully, headlight switch, loose steering box. The list goes on. The truck is much too heavy for the braking system. I lost the brakes at a red light, the brake pedal went to the floor. Rear brake line rusted out. This truck has been very well taken care of, garaged and with light use. About 79,000 miles on it now, looking to spend more money to get the electrical problems resolved. Breaks my heart GM can't build a truck that will last. Looking to trade, can't afford repairs, along with payments.
Best FeaturesThe exterior looks and style. comfort of the interior and roomy. The factory radio sounds great! Nice to drive
Worst FeaturesImprove the whole entire braking system, all of the electrical system. Better MPG. Interior cheap plastic dash and door panel parts should be replaced with something that would hold up and not squeak when driving down the road.
