Interestingly new Cherokee has electrically heated wiper rests imbedded in windshield.

LOL...

You haven't lived until you've been through a winter where even gas powered cars need engine block heaters.

I had a friend who lived in South Dakota for a couple years. One time, he was with a friend who had a Range Rover. They hit some ice on a downhill curve during a snow storm and slid into the ditch. This was in a State Park they worked in. There was no chance of getting it out before it was going to be buried, so it was pretty well in there for the duration.

They ended up walking to the nearest Ranger station and got a ride back to the crew lodgings. My friend asked the guy when he was planning to have the truck towed out.

He replied "Spring". When asked when in Spring, he replied "Late May".


Anywhoo.....

I use the Rain-X brand winter formula windshield washer fluid. I've never had it freeze and it keeps the windshield cleaner by allowing dirt to slide off with the water that hits it. I find I use less of the stuff, making it actually cheaper than the junk bargain blue stuff.
