    Wipers Freeze to Windshield-design flaw

    We live in a moderate climate where it does freeze in the winter but not to extremes. This morning it was 28 degrees and it had lightly snowed last night. We ran the defroster and unstuck the frozen wipers from the windshield. After driving down the road for a few miles the wipers were frozen to the windshield again. The problem is that the wipers 'rest' below the duct that blows out the heat for the windshield. We had to stop to dislodge them 3 times in a 14 mile drive. Anyone else having this issue?? This is a 2011 Chevy Cruze.

    I live in Wisconsin, and it does get cold here.

    I got my 2011 Cruze LT last March, but I park in a garage overnight and have not had the problem.

    Thanks for the heads up. It is good to know this can happen.

    I live in Toronto so this isn't good news for me.


    Maybe using that Winter grade anti freeze will keep the ice from forming on the blades.
