GMC Envoy owners have reported 68 problems related to wiper (under the visibility category).
Hello, first off, this is not a vehicle issue or complaint. This is an after market component issue regarding bosch evolution wiper blades. I purchased bosch evolution all season wipers for my 2004 Envoy from woot. Com and installed them last summer. They worked fine until last month when winter weather hit here in new york state. In cold winter conditions three things have occurred: 1. The wiper latches are lifting up (releasing) allowing the wipers to no longer be secured to the wiper arm. My passenger side wiper has actually separated from the wiper arm twice so far, and I have had to pull over to retrieve the wiper from the street while avoiding traffic. 2. And, in cold winter conditions the wipers blades are taking a �set� thus scraping the window loudly in one direction instead of wiping the glass in both directions. 3. Also, the cold weather is making the wiper blades form into a curved shape away from the glass, instead of being flat on the glass. This prevents the wiper blade from contacting most of the windshield. I could not see where I was going because the wipers only cleared the window at the top and bottom edges because only the ends of the wiper blade were making contact with the windshield. I believe this is a manufacturing defect and more importantly a serious safety issue. I contacted bosch automotive and they replied they only have a 30 day warranty on wipers and I should contact the seller. Because of bosch�s I don�t care attitude I am contacting the national highway traffic safety administration (NHTSA) regarding this serious safety issue. Sorry to bother you with this issue and I look forward to your response. Thank you for your time, john j. Golan.

When I start my car the windshield wipers come on even though they are in the off position. Sometimes its intermittent, sometime they run for as long as I am driving. I have checked complaints on this going back to 2013.
I recently purchased my Envoy and the wipers worked most of the way home, the passenger side stopped working . Then the driver side would not go down when shut off. Now when I turn them on they hop up and go right back down and do not work.
The rear window to our 2005 GMC Envoy xl shattered when we attempted to close the rear hatch. The window was frozen from the cold weather and when it flexed, it shattered everywhere.

When using the wipers, they will wipe ok for a couple of swipes and then get stuck and shimmy down the windshield. Sometimes they just stick in place. It doesn't matter what speed we go or if we are stopped.
While servicing my vehicle at an authorized gm dealership, I was notified of the recent recall regarding headlamps which get hot and can fail. It has been nearly 8 months since that recall was issued, and yet there remains no identifiable remedy or solution as to how they will resolve the issue and repair / replace the defective components. . Entitled to safe vehicles, I am unsure as to how or why gm would believe that 8 months to not even have announced a solution is an absurdity. At this point, the period of time in which the manufacturer has had to develop and implement a solution is simply unacceptable as a consumer. I am under the belief that their solution to the problem is simple, they are going let the vehicles age a few more years and hope by that time, additional vehicles requiring repair will no longer be on the road and the issue will magically go away. As owners of this vehicle, I am entitled to the remedy as promised under recall gm 14291, and I do not think that it is acceptable for manufacturers to sit on open recalls for vehicles currently on our roadways which have been already been identified as having a safety defect in need of defect replacement or repair.
Headlights randomly shut off and won't come back on. High beams still work.
First off my electrical panel in my steering wheel none of the lights are on and with my windshield wipers some time they will come and when it start to rain and they will stop working this is very dangerous because I never know when they going to work or not driving like this can be a death trap, this been going for about 6 months I told them after the recall for my door panel they said it might be recall for this as well nothing yet.
