problem #3

Apr 031999


  • miles
Windshield wiper worked intermittently. The dealer replaced the wiper pulse board and said it was doing the same thing the pulse boards did that were recalled. But the recall was for cars 94 to 5-96, my car was made in 8-96 and was not under the recall. I spoke with Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 claim # 990317773 and was told due to the age and milage of my car they would not cover it. This car is newer than the cars they recalled and has the same problem. Additional recalls need to be made on this part.
