Has anyone here experimented with putting their wipers in the vertical position when they are off? I know people do that, but I haven't seen any evidience that it works. It seems common sense to me, but I want emperical evidence.
Uh.. you know that that's like the number one cause that wiper motors fail right? if you turn off your car and the blades aren't back to resting, this puts some stress on the motor, which burns them out a few ten thousand miles before they should!

Its nothing new, it even says in your owners manual, well... most owners manuals anyway.

Yea.. I drive a Jeep and I'm on a fuel economy site, but you just wouldn't understand... "It's a Jeep thing!" *Jeep Wave*
