 Windshield motor began running on its own. wiper fluid began squirting on its own. would not respond to control. recall notice document id # 1197628 states the recall is to replace a cover over the motor to prevent it from failing....... when i took my truck to have the recall performed they changed the cover? leaving the motor inoperable. i am sure this was not the intention of the recall.

 I have a 2003 hummer h2. i am the original owner. in 2005 the windshield wiper/washer module failed during heavy rains. the dealer replaced it under warranty. on january 21, 2010, during heavy rains, it failed again. i looked up the module on the internet to find out that in 2008, 2003 hummers were recalled for this very reason. unfortunately, my vin number was not within those recalled. i saw posts regarding the failure of this module on many other years. i contacted gmc, and they told me that they would not replace the module because it was not on the recall list. they also told me that they only recall models when the nhtsa forces them to, and they do not volunteer any recall. this is ridiculous and they should be held responsible for this obscure unit failing. no other car in the world has had this problem, only hummer. *tr

 Need to replace blower motor resistor module. it quit working and we have been trying to replace part since sept 2008. gm informed me they do not currently make this part. i feel it is a safety issue due to ice/frost and or condensation forming on the inside of the windows due to the cold weather here. it makes visibility slim to none. i was told it would take at least a month to find someone to make this part...that was 2 months ago. just since sept 2008 there are almost 500 people hunting this same part, we are #8 on the list. i feel due to the high volume it should be handled as a recall...replaced free of charge as well as free labor, and a rental car provided free of charge until gm/hummer can fix my vehicle so i can have the use of it. *tr

 Windshield wiper intermittent. comes on without switch being activated,will not go off at all. pulled fuse at the dealership still wouldn't go off. was driving down the road in the rain, wipers would not function at all, however wiper fluid was rapidly spraying out at full spray and continued to spray after fluid was all gone. bad visibility problems. had to pull over to side of freeway in redding,ca and call local hummer dealer which was 100 miles away. gentleman i spoke with said he had heard of this many times. got it fixed,and it did not remedy the problem. now i have front end problems ,brake problems, frame is squeaking really bad and dealership cant find anything wrong. rear passenger window keeps falling down. all in all hummer are the biggest pile of junk on the road. ill never give my money to gm again. they do not stand behind what they sell. now i cant even trade it in. they'll sure take your money and finance you no problem, but when you have problems they turn the other cheek and act like nothings wrong or its all your fault. i have a very strict maintenance program for all my vehicles,so them saying that its my fault,or if its involved in a crash,insurance companies want to place blame too. good thing i have records...lots of records. i've also had problem with seat recall. one of the first times i drove it the easy out was activated and it crushed me up against the steering wheel. i turned that off really quick! *tr

 I have purchased a 2003 hummer h-2 last year in arizona. i now live in florida. my trucks steering vibrates and makes a clicking type noise when driving on poor pavement. then the windshield wiper stopped working. i turned the vehicle off and on. the windshield wiper started working, but the windshield wiper washer keeps spraying cleaner on the windshield. i had to remove the relay to make it stop. the rear window washer keeps spraying cleaner on the window also. i called a chevorlet dealer in florida and told them about the problem. they told me that i would have to pay $600 for the multiselect switch if that is the problem. that doesn't include the labor cost. i started looking on the internet for recall information and it seems that i am not the only one with that problem. i don't think that i should pay for a manufacture mistake. so i am reporting this to you. nothing was done to correct the problem. *tr

 I have a 2003 hummer h2. i am the original owner. in 2005 the windshield wiper/washer module failed during heavy rains. the dealer replaced it under warranty. on january 21, 2010, during heavy rains, it failed again. i looked up the module on the internet to find out that in 2008, 2003 hummers were recalled for this very reason. unfortunately, my vin number was not within those recalled. i saw posts regarding the failure of this module on many other years. i contacted gmc, and they told me that they would not replace the module because it was not on the recall list. they also told me that they only recall models when the nhtsa forces them to, and they do not volunteer any recall. this is ridiculous and they should be held responsible for this obscure unit failing. no other car in the world has had this problem, only hummer. *tr

 I have a severe rattle coming from my sunroof and sunroof reflector and the sunroof does not operate to the open position but will vent open but when it is in the closed position it rattles and shakes looks like it is going to fly off and i am very worried this is going to happen. i also seem to have a car-pool every time it rains because it leaks badly even when its being washed or in a light shower. there is alot of water damage on the headliner and water stains as well. and my vehicle seems to end wet inside after a rain shower or storm. the leak itself is not a huge issue but the rattle is. the sunroof is going to eventually fly off, this is inevitable ! i have taken it to be checked & no one can figure the cause. i do not want to even think about what will happen if the glass flies off & do not want to be the cause of someone dying or becoming badly injured. this is a very big safety issue, please recall this problem! i also have several other safety issues associated with this vehicle which my wife & i have filed under separate complaints on this site. i am not a typical complainer and usually just takes things in stride but this has become ridiculous! please do something! *tr

 We purchased our 2003 hummer h2 in march 2008 and as we test drove the hummer (fully loaded) we checked all the specs everything was working well and 1 or 2 days later we went to try and open the sunroof and it would not open, and we have also noticed that when it is raining heavy or light that our headliner has water stains and is wet right after it rains. we are also having a problem with the sunroof (fully closed) will shake & rattle and it feels like at any moment that it could completely fly off and cause a serious accident or even a fatal one due to the weight of the sunroof glass. i have done a lot of research and there are thousands of complaints on auto forums online, with this exact same issues that we are having. i think this should be considered a very serious issue but to the fact that if it flies off and it doesn't cause an accident, that it could go through the vehicle's windshield directly behind us. i think that this should be a top priority recall due to it being a manufacture faulty install and the other 2003 hummer h2 owners complaints say that when they took their hummer to the dealership, they were told it was a manufacture faulty install and were still charge large sums of money to fix a manufacture problem . i think that the hummer/gm manufacture should be held liable, and pay for all costs & damage to the headliner & the faulty sunroof rattle . and we have to pay high prices for these vehicles alone, we do have a right to have these problems corrected & fixed, and we should not have to pay for any of it, since it was a manufacture problem . thank you very much. *tr
