The other day my wife had to drive the SRX for the first time in heavy snow conditions. She was actually kind of excited to try it out. When she drove to work she had no problems and was very happy with the way it drove in the snow. Coming home was another story, lol. She was basically in tears telling me about it. I guess the bloody windshield wipers kept freezing up on her. She had to pull over three times within 15 km to chip the ice away from them. I asked her if she had the defrost on and she said yes. So anyways I bought new wipers for her. To be honest I don't think they're going to be much better. One thing I've noticed about the SRX where the wipers sit is that it is very deep and very hard to remove snow which ends up building up then it turns to ice. Just my opion but I think this is a very poor design for the north. So just waiting for our next winter storm. She's nervous and so am I since she basically told me if it continues to give her problems will have to trade it in.
