On my way to work, my windshield wiper keeps failing. It's almost 100% guaranteed to fail during any rain. It also fails when using the windshield washer. This is very dangerous, as I do only highway driving every day. I know that previous years had the recall, yet the 1998 has not been recalled for fix. I realized this was a problem during the first rain after I purchased my vechicle 2 1/2 years ago. I hope GM is willing to fix this problem soon. I am sincerly considering converting to another maker.

My winshield wiper/washer fails without notice. I took it to my regular repair shop and was referred to the local GMC dealer account recall code #3023 from GM. When the dealer ran the computer check it was found that my specific vehicle was not listee for this recall even if it was on a different data base. Now they want $65 for the relay and $55 to install it. This sounds like bull to me. Once again GM puts out defective parts and when they get caught they want the consumer to pay for it.ak

Truck would not run at full power due to the ignition switch lights would also fail on the dash. Key would also get stuck in the ignition do to a problem with the ignition. The exhaust problem was the baffels were busted inside the muffler. Windshield had a void between the upper frame and the windshield causing it to leak. Belt tensioner broke during a start up. Air conditioner compressor went out during my travel home from work.ak
