When driving in rain windshield wipers would work intermittently. Would need to stop vehicle and jerk on arm to restart windshield wipers to work. This is causing poor visibility of the roads. Have contacted dealership, informed consumer no recalls on vehicle.

Purchase from local independent auto dealer(off lease at wholesale auction). Very dangerous windshield wiper problem in rain at high speeds. Don't know if NHTSA campaigns 98V150001,98V150000,96057000 have been done. Rear left passenger power window working intermitently. Low thunking or pop noise when pulling off on passenger side concerns me. May be A/C related or possible steering component.

The windshield wipers have worked intermittently for at least the past 6 months. NHTSA campaign I.D. number 98V150000 was identified and the vehicle was taken to a Chevrolet dealer for recall. The dealer said that the VIN was not listed on their recall. I contacted Chevrolet and they indicated the same. This is a safety problem that we will correct at our expense versus a recall.
