General Motors is recalling approximately 681,500 model-year 2014-2015 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles due to a windshield wiper issue. The ball joints in the windshield wiper module may corrode, causing one or both windshield wipers to fail, reducing visibility in certain driving conditions and increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on May 2, 2022. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 800-222-1020, GMC customer service at 800-462-8782, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect the windshield wiper module, and repair or replace it as necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
