Silverado

There are many examples of windsheald wipers failures on 1996 Silverado trucks, but GM says that the VIN number dosent include my truck.I beleave you should expand this recall because its apparent that many other trucks have the same deadly problem.I suspect from my research on the web the ac and fuel pump problems are also common.I received my truck just after the strike. That was a big mistake.
