RAV4 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 88,000 miles
During heavy rain storm passenger side wiper linkage/mechanism broke. Luckily, this was while the blade was on the down stroke, otherwise it would have broken off the driver's side blade. Was told entire mechanism had to be replaced, at a cost of about $450.
