1997 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

The windshield wipers don't work all the time. The last 10 times that I tried to turn them on, they didn't 5 of those times. This has been happening on and off for the past month. Last night I had to pull into the breakdown lane on the highway across 3 lanes in a downpour, because the wipers just stopped operating. I was almost hit because I couldn't see anything.

I own a 1997 Chevrolet Blazer. A few years back the windshield wipers stopped working while I was driving in a heavy rainstorm on a high traffic expressway. It was a very dangerous situation as there was no visibility due to the wipers stopping. I contacted Chevrolet and repairs were made at a dealership. On Monday, December 15, 2008, I was driving in a rainstorm and once again the wipers failed. I contacted Chevrolet and they gave me a service request claim no. And made an appointment at the same dealership to have the vehicle diagnosed. They told me that I was responsible for the diagnostic fee and no guarantee that they would be responsible for the repair charges. I believe this is a hazardous problem to myself, passengers, other motorists, and pedestrians. This is the 2nd incident. I checked for re-calls on this and there are none.
