problem #2

Jan 272009

Sierra 1500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,553 miles
The contact owns a 2009 GMC Sierra 1500. During an ice storm, the contact noticed that the passenger side windshield wiper blade was four inches away and does not touch the windshield. As a result, the wiper cannot remove ice or snow from the windshield. In addition, the front defroster does defrost the front windshield. The dealer stated that nothing could be done because the vehicle was designed in that manner. The failure mileage was 7,553. Updated 3/11/09 updated 03/16/09.

problem #1

Sierra 1500

  • 200 miles
Obstructed view out of windshield on passenger side. The wiper only covers 2/3rds of the passenger side of windshield. In snow and ice storm conditions the passenger side wiper is not functional and because a visibility safety issue. Also the passenger side of windshield does not defrost and is a contributing factor to the wiper blade not clearing the windshield. Reported to dealer who replace wiper blades but this does not correct the defroster issue or the wiper safety visibility problem on the passenger side during a storm rain or snow etc.
