problem #2

Nov 011998


  • miles
In November, I noticed an increase in wind/air noise coming from the rear tailgate. Upon investigation, I discovered that the rear windshield is being pulled away from the vehicle; the hinge mechanism, that holds the glass to the vehicle, has failed and there is about = inch gap between the glass and the weather seal. This problem has become worse with continued driving and a dealer has determined that the problem was do to " no fault of my own". Chevrolet has refused to correct the problem which may cause exhaust fumes to enter and/or the rear windshield to be ripped from the vehicle.
