sounds like you are another victim yes, might be worth trying to cry to GM see if they cover it. They are not cheap apparently.

It is "noisy"--no question about knowing that it's working!

The high-pitched humm of the fans is one thing. When they start making a 'WOWwowWOW' sound, that's recall material.

its not a rotating WOWwowWOw sound, but a constant loud sound

we've got a full size van with a 6.0 and it didn't make as much noise out in the desert than my caprice does on a normal 80 degree day

Still get out there and with the engine off, see if you can wobble the fans back and forth. If you can, they need replacing. If they haven't already been replaced under the recall, you may be eligible for that. Check with the dealer.
