"takata recall" as I was driving on the highway on 11/2/2016 my windshield wipers completed stop working. Its a recall on my ball joints in the windshield wiper modules(recall number 25302).as stated by the customer assistance center, there nothing that can be done because they just don't have the parts to fix my car. I personal think something can be done in the matter of my family safety. I feel like nothing have been resolve in this matter and would like further assistance.

" windshield wiper modules recall"- it was raining December 6, 2016. It was the first day of hurricane mathew and the job release us early. My car was in motion on the street. I turned my wind shield wipers on and it wiped. One time across the windshield and stopped. I had no visibility and tried get off the road and call for help. I called coggin Chevrolet and talked to michelle in service. Per michelle. They will be closed on Friday. I dropped my car at 7am 10/8. the gate was open but service was closed. I returned to coggin Chevrolet on 10/10 at 07:00. My service advisor was mike hopper. At first mike didn't even want to give me a loaner. Reluctantly, I was given a loaner. I received a call back from mike saying repair needed is around $420 windshield wiper transmission. Because they are unsure if that is apart of the recall. They threaten to charge her credit card if the loaner wasn't return on 10/11 and not honor the recall to temporary fix until the remedy is in place.

I called GM and my dealer several times in the past year due to wipers stopping suddenly causing no visibility. I had to leave my vehicle roadside several times. I have tried repairs which were only temporary. I was told there were no recalls. I finally received a recall letter and called the dealer as well as GM and was told they do not have the parts yet therefore there is nothing that can be done for me. I was told the dealer also does not keep a list of affected vehicles and it is up to me to contact the dealer weekly to see if the part is available. This is very unsafe and I can only wonder how many people may have died due to this issue.

Equinox

  • 51,000 miles
I purchased my 2013 Equinox used with 51,000 miles on it. 2 weeks after purchase, during my first rain storm with it, I used my windshield wipers on my way to work. About 5 minutes after turning the wipers on, going about 50 miles per hour, they started jerking as they moved then just stopped in the middle of my wind shield. It was 6 in the morning during a thunderstorm. The only thing I could see was the tail lights in front of me and when lightening flashed. I was on a country road for half of the trip so there was little light to help me see through the rain; the second half of my drive was city streets with lots of other traffic which also had me quite nervous as it was pouring and I could barely see. I had to drive 30 minutes to work this way. Very scary! after work I took it to hardy Chevrolet where they diagnosed it as a broken wiper transmission. They had to order the part so I had to leave my SUV there and rent a car for a couple of days. As it was a used car, this was not covered so it was all out of pocket. The cost of repair, not counting the enterprise car rental, was $403.73. If this is now a recall issue...I would like to be reimburssed for having to already pay for the replacement of the faulty item. I have the receipt from the repair. I can not find the car rental receipt or I would say that I should be reimbursed for that as well.
