Unhappy Wipers

When we bought the SX4, it was sunny. About two days later, while we're driving along, the rain stards pouring down. I turn on the wiper for the first time only to realize that only the driver side (fortunately...) was working. The passenger side was staying right there.
I stopped by the side of the road to check, and realize that the shaft was turning but not the arm. It was in fact so loose that I was able to remove the nut by hand and pulled off the wiper (to stop any more damage from occuring).
When I went to the dealer to complain about it the answer was "Well, we received those cars at the end of the winter and the change of temperature might have cause the fastening to loosen."

I'm no auto mechanic but to me, that sounds bullcrap. What do you think? Should I worry that, next winter, a wiper arm will stop moving because of change in temperature and I have to carry along tools to tighten up this nut every 2000km or every 10 degrees change???

I blame it on poor preparation from the dealer.

Pierre.

No good! Also take note of the mini rear wiper blade. You can get a perfect fitting one from the Suburu dealer for the 07 Legacy/Outback. A pic and part number is available at SX4 Forums - Powered by vBulletin
