  • 2,000 miles
The passenger wiper blade does not cover sufficient area of the windshield to permit the passenger to see the 'right' portion of the road. The unwiped area accumulates dirt and adds to the visual obstruction of falling rain. An unbelievable visual distortion of the road results. I am 70 and am appalled at the lack of wiper coverage in a critical portion of the windshield for the passenger. Most passengers assist the driver in the safe operation of the vehicle by calling attention to impending problems. Their contribution is limited in this vehicle due to the poor wiper coverage of the passenger side. The portion of the car above the bottom of the windshield was moved in on the sides of the car by design change. The normal swath of the passenger wiper for a full width car doesl not work with this redesign. The passenger wiper pivot point should be closer to the front of the passenger and wipe to the right edge of the windshield. Help !!! this wiper situation is really awful, unnecessary, and fatiguing to the passenger. The a, B, and C sections of the windshield were selected for the specifications when we had full windshields going to the right and left sides of car. Now that the edges of the windshield has been moved in, the specification coverage for the passenger is not sufficient. Thanks for listening and hopefully, you can do something.... we hate driving this car in the rain.
