Why would we want headlight washers and cool fascia?

Good job Chrysler...we didn't want headlight washers or cool front fascia anyway. Let the UK have those features. (Palm face plant)

Obviously I'm being sarcastic... Weak, Chrysler...very weak on your part.

I'm an ex -pat Brit and IIRC headlamp washers are a legal requirement in the old country. Some higher spec cars also include headlamp wipers.

Do they still use wipers now that most headlights don't have glass lenses? I thought the plastic lenses was the reason for going to high pressure washers.

Since I never owned a high end vehicle, I don't know for sure.

The Z cars even have front wipers there and not here.
I think it's added weight for nothing I've never needed such a thing
That would be a weight reduction mod on my ride lol

You may be correct - I haven't lived there for over 20 years now.

Washers required for HID lamps only. Wipers not used since 1990s. Also from 2011 year DRL required too.
