  1. Curt You really should respond to Transport Canada as yours would be the first verifiable instance in Canada where the recall repair clearly failed. If we can get them rolling on this, perhaps they can force GM to fix it properly. Your call.
  2. Hi All Here is some information for those who have had their rear windows blow out. (Either after the recall fix or for those who did not get a recall notice). This is an answer i got back from Transport Canada and it gives options to owners from US and Canada. Owners should not roll over for this defect. (Curt HD Mechanic and Magusbob - this should interest you). FYI =============================================================== Thank you for your email message that you sent to Transport Canada's Defect Investigations and Recalls Division. Defects and Recalls / Défauts et rappels <[email protected]> If you have experienced a failure after a recall has been performed, we would like to hear from you to document this concern. Similarly, if another owner has experienced a subsequent failure after recall work has been performed, we would invite them to contact Transport Canada to speak with a Defect Investigator so that we can obtain further information and properly document the issue. To contact Transport Canada, we would recommend either calling us at the 1-800 number listed below, or log a complaint via our online form at the link listed below: https://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/Saf-Sec-Sur/7/PCDB-BDPP/fc-cp.aspx?lang=eng. We would refer owners from the USA to contact our American counterparts, The NHTSA, and log a complaint with them. With any complaint that is received, a review would be performed and Transport Canada would look for similar allegations amongst the complaints – both in Canada and in the USA. At the present time, Transport Canada is not aware of a specific trend of failures on these vehicles after the recall was performed. We appreciate your interest in Motor Vehicle Safety. If you have additional questions, please call our toll-free hot line, 1-800-333-0510, Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time or Eastern Daylight Time, as applicable. Sincerely, Defects and Recalls | Défauts et Rappels Transport Canada | Transports Canada Motor Vehicle Safety | Sécurité des véhicules automobiles 80 rue Noël street, Gatineau, Québec, J8Z 0A1 Government of Canada | Gouvernement du Canada 1-800-333-0510
  3. Thx Dieselfan1 I stand corrected. Last i knew, there was no recall in US.
  4. Curt I take it then that you have permanently pulled your rear window defogger fuse. Note that the heated mirrors and the rear window are on the same circuit BUT are controlled by different fuses through a relay. Mirrors use a 10 amp fuse, rear window uses a 30 amp fuse. I can tell you and all readers on this forum that I am permanently pulling the 30 amp rear window fuse now. I've had many trucks in the past without rear window defrost and I can easily live without it. I also think that the real reason GM hasn't included this recall in the US is because: 1. They have no idea how to fix the issue or are too cheap to fix it properly. 2. They are "experimenting" with a band-aid fix in Canada first because doing the same in the US would cost 10 times more. Clearly their mickey mouse fix does not work based on your evidence. Hope US readers will pick up on this (no pun intended).
  5. to Curt from Canada HDMechanic I need you to clarify that your rear window exploded AFTER the recall repair was done to your rear window? I just had mine "repaired" with some mickey mouse buss cover at the dealership. Didn't look right to me either and I could not get my dealership to divulge exactly what they were doing. So please confirm this for me so that I understand you correctly. If that is the case, I am going to pull my fuse again for the rear window defrost and leave it out permanently. I'm in Alberta too.
