We got our first taste of winter this week, and it was our first winter experience with the 2012 DGC. Unfortunately is wasn't a completely enjoyable experience. We got a little ice build up on the wipers, which was enough for them to do absolutely nothing when trying to clean the windshield. Even when we made sure to remove any ice or snow from around the wipers, they still iced up and were worthless. Do I just have garbage wiper blades? Or, is this a common issue? Any recommendations for better wiper blades for winter? The last time we lived in a place that got actual winter weather we had our 2002 DGC, which had the defroster grid for the windshield wipers. Its too bad that feature got cut to save money.
