MY TRUNK OPENED AT RANDOM WHEN I WAS HEADED TO WORK. THIS OCCURRED MANY TIMES WHEN I WAS DRIVING AND AS WELL AS WHEN THE CAR WAS PARKED AND LOCKED. IT COULD HAVE CAUSED AN ACCIDENT DUE TO A DISTRACTION AND HAVING TO PULL OVER, ITEMS FALLING OUT IN FRONT OF VEHICLE FOLLOWING, AND ALSO COULD HAVE HAD ITEMS STOLEN. SINCE THE MIDDLE OF SUMMER, IT HAS STOPPED THAT ISSUE BUT, THE TRUNK WILL NOT OPEN WITH THE BUTTON ON THE REAR OF THE TRUNK. THE ONLY WAY IT OPEN IS WITH THE KEY FOB. THIS IS VERY INCONVENIENT AND HAS HAPPENED TO MANY OTHERS. I HAVE STOPPED AT A FEW CHEVROLET DEALERS ASKING FOR THEM TO FIX THIS BEFORE MY WARRANTY EXPIRED BUT THEY WOULD NOT COVER IT.

GM HAS A DEFECTIVE DRIVERS SIDE WINDSHIELD WIPER SYSTEM THAT FAILED/STOPPED WORKING WHILE I WAS DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY IN THE POURING RAIN. THIS SITUATION CAN AND WILL KILL SOMEBODY. THANKFULLY I WAS ABLE TO PULL OVER AND HAD TOOLS TO REMOVE THE DRIVERS SIDE WINDSHIELD WIPER AND PLASTIC WIPER MOTOR COVER TO RE-ATTACH THE WINDSHIELD WIPER LINKAGE. OTHERWISE I WOULD HAVE HAD TO CALL ROADSIDE ASST. BELOW THE PLASTIC WINDSHIELD WIPER COVER, THERE IS THE WINDSHIELD WIPER MOTOR AND LINKAGE. THERE IS A 6 INCH ARM THAT COMES OFF THE WIPER MOTOR WITH AN UPSIDE DOWN BOWL. THE HALF BOWL ATTACHES TO A 3 INCH ARM WITH A HALF A BALL AT THE END OF IT THAT FACES UPWARDS. THE HALF BALL THEN IS ATTACHED BELOW THE BOLT/NUT THAT HOLDS YOUR WINDSHIELD WIPER ON THE CAR. GM SAYS IT IS NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTEE. SO DOES CHEVY DEALERSHIP. CUP AND BALL ATTACHMENT SYSTEM IN THE WIPER MOTOR LINKAGE WITH NO CLIP TO STOP IT FROM POPPING OFF. GM QUESTION REFERENCE #140916-000069
