2011 Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon Recalled for Faulty Wipers
text size: A- A+
The reason for this recall consists of a problem these vehicles, which could number around 5,000, might experience with the windshield wipers. Specifically “some of these vehicles have the condition in which the windshield wiper motor crank arm nut may not be tightened to specification.”
The direct consequence of such a problem is that when the respective wipers operate with a build-up of snow or ice, or on a dry windshield, the nut could loosen to the point that these can become inoperative.
As expected, authorized dealers will secure the wiper motor crank arm nut free of charge for the consumers, who are currently being notified by the manufacturer on whether their vehicle is subject to the recall or not.
Some two months ago, Honda was announcing the recall of 33,341 model-year 2011 Odyssey vehicles in the U.S. to replace the front windshield wiper linkage rod. Just like with GM’s aforementioned vehicles, if the windshield wipers are frozen to the windshield with heavy ice and the wipers are switched on without freeing them from the windshield, they could also become inoperative and increase the risk of a crash due to poor driver visibility.
