Nothing bad has happened yet. This "recall" has been going on for months. I find it difficult to believe that Chevy cannot come up with a remedy. I would guess one is available but it probably would cost them too much. Concern: If the wipers stop working during a severe storm I'm really in trouble. Why does this take so long"?"

There is a recall on my vehicle for windshield wipers. My windshield wipers became inoperable on 1/7/17 in the middle of a snow storm. My local dealer gordon Chevrolet and Chevrolet customer service are telling me that there is not a current fix available. In the meantime, I do not have windshield wipers. I requested to be provided a loaner vehicle from the dealer until the fix is in place and was denied. I am currently without wipers and have no where to turn.

When I turned on my vehicle today, none of the climate control system buttons were operational. Not able to turn on defroster, rear window defogger or adjust climate controls. Live in Minnesota so climate control is very important during the winter.

Equinox

We purchased our Equinox from my wife's parents at about 30000 miles. We noticed after a short time that the windshield wipers left an "unwiped streak" in the middle of the driver's side wiper making it very hazardous any time conditions merited using the wiper. We changed the wipers multiple times with no resolve to the problem. Upon consulting 2 mechanics, they both made no changes saying there was no adjustment that could be made to the wipers. We then received the recall notice earlier this year. We can't really drive the vehicle with any chance of rain or other precipitation. This occurred with a Chevrolet service center as well.
