1997 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 162005

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

My 1997 Chevrolet Venture VIN [xxx], wipers would not park in correct position. I took it to a mechanic and he told me he found a campaign listed (97005 Feb 97) for the problem. I then took it to the Chevy dealer and was told my vehicle VIN number was not included in the campaign. The dealer replaced the wiper crank arm because it was bent. This particular part was part of the campaign. It cost me $234.43 to get it repaired. The wipers used to park when it first started if you turned them on and off enough times. Finally, they just started stopping where they were when you turned the vehicle off. This was over probably a years time period. I just found a repair invoice from Mar 98 where we had taken in the van because wipers would not park. I feel my vehicle should be added to the campaign and should be covered and I should be reimbursed.
