Like fellow Detroit Big Three rival Ford, GM is off to a rough start in April with a hefty recall of more than 681,000 SUVs for inoperative windshield wipers.

Affected vehicles include model-year 2014-15 Chevrolet Equinoxes and GMC Terrains, the latter of which also got recently recalled for headlight glare. This time around, the ball joints in the windshield wiper module may corrode, causing one or both windshield wipers to fail. This can reduce visibility in certain driving conditions, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will inspect the wiper module and repair or replace it, as necessary, for free. Chevrolet and GMC parent GM will begin notifying owners May 2. Those with further questions can call Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, GMC at 800-462-8782, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check your vehicle identification number and learn more.
