problem #2

While driving 50 mph in inclement weather windshield wipers failed. This caused poor visibility. Driver was able to maintain control of the vehicle, and drove it to the dealer for inspection. Mechanic determined that the windshield wipers needed to be replaced. Both wiper arms snapped and interlocked when put them into operation for the first time, these arms overlap's one another with a very close tolerance. Wiper on passenger side deformed and twisted as it pulled away from the other after interlocking. Rubber blade pulled out leaving the metal arm to sweep the windshield and scratch on the glass.

The windshield wiper washer keeps freezing up due to poor design. This makes the removal of debris from windshield impossible. Which reduces the driver's visibility that could result in an accident. The vehicle has been serviced several times for this issue, in which alcohol has been added to the windshield washer fluid to thaw the windshield wiper washer. This is only a temporarily fix.
