MISSISSAUGA, ON - Often it is a feature that is not thought about until it is needed, but windshield wiper function matters to drivers, especially in rainy and cold climates. Nissan took notice with a change to the 2013 Nissan Altima.

The innovative wiper feature now available on 2013 Altimas comes in handy in cold climates with ice or snow. It's called "auto-park wipers." When a driver shuts off the car while the wipers are in still motion, the wipers now complete a full cycle first. The wipers will always rest on the bottom of the windshield, keeping them from freezing in place in the middle.

"It's important for our customers, especially in winter climates, to not have their wipers freeze to the windshield. And so that's why the wipers automatically complete a cycle and come back and park themselves at the base of the windshield. It's a very simple feature, but it's one that the new Altima has that a lot of our competitors don't," said Jayamohan.

This innovative windshield wiper feature comes on most 2013 Nissan Altimas.
