Car & Driver: GM Recalls 367,000 Crossovers for Potential Windshield-Wiper Fault


Recommended Posts

Although Chevy's Equinox is quite dated, it hasn't affected the small ute's ability to rack up top-20 sales numbers. Available with either a 2.4-liter inline-four or a 3.6-liter V-6, the portly crossover is proof that sometimes core competency trumps cutting edge when to comes to appeasing the masses.


General Motors is recalling 367,808 crossovers in the United States for potentially faulty windshield wipers, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.


The 2013 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain have ball joints in the windshield-wiper linkages that can rust and separate from their mounts, which can cause one or both wipers to become stuck or inoperative. GM discovered the problem after a Canadian employee reported it in December, and after recalling the vehicles in Canada, the company found elevated warranty claims in the U.S. and decided to recall U.S. models this month. Dealers will replace the wiper linkages at a later date.


In October 2015, GM recalled 31,000 crossovers for wiper motors that could overheat and catch fire.
