Windshield wiper functions usually do not get thought about much, but when cold and rainy weather hit, windshield wipers can be invaluable. Nissan took notice to drivers’ needs and added two new changes to their 2013 Altima.
One feature new to the Altima wipers for the 2013 model year is called “auto-park wipers.” When the vehicle is shut off by the driver while the wipers are still in motion, the wipers will now complete a full cycle before coming to rest. This will ensure wipers will always rest at the bottom of the windshield and prevent them from getting stuck and freezing in the middle of the windshield in cold and icy environments.
The other feature now available on the 2013 Altima is the addition of automatic headlights responding to wipers. Headlights on the 2013 Nissan Altima automatically turn on after four wiper cycles. Approximately 30 states require headlights to be on in rain or heavy fog. This new feature of linking headlights to wiper cycles keeps drivers safe and helps them stick to the rules of the road.
These two new windshield wiper innovations come on most 2013 Nissan Altimas. Visit James Ceranti Nissan today to experience this for yourself.
