The windshield wipers on this vehicle have worked poorly for years and are getting worse with time. For a long time, they would just stop. We took the vehicle in for repair and the repair man simply tightened a bolt. From that point on, we did that on our own whenever the wipers stopped. Now for the past year or so, there have been times, just like the one last week, when my husband was on his way home from work and the wipers stopped and wouldn't come back on at all! he was stuck on the side of the expressway, in a horrible rainstorm, for 40 minutes. Very unsafe. We have spent a lot of time, money and countless worry on this problem and think it should be taken care of. We would like to give this car to our son who is leaving for college in a few months, but worry about this issue.
