I have noticed that the jet on the drivers side now squirts at the extreme edge of the drivers side of the screen. On my car where the water hits is beyond the area wiped by the drivers wiper blade, Consequently the water just runs down the 2" wide strip that is not touched by the blade and is not used to wash the screen.
Of course as we have commented before, if we were in the EU this would not be a problem for the driver, just for the passenger. I found it difficult to wash the drivers side although the passengers side was washed quickly.
Traveling at speeds over 30mph the water hits the wiper blades when they are horozontal and you need to attempt to squirt whilst they are vertical to get some water on the screen Even then, the blades just push it downwards. What is needed is for the water to squirt ABOVE the blades when horizontal, that would allow the water to be moved across the whole area in both directions, up and down.
I think the whole screen wash set up is crap and far inferior to the many other car makes I have owned and driven here and around the world. Actually I have become very disappointed in this car. The idea is great but the implementation is poor. The engine is brilliant but the whole experience is spoiled by niggles which should have been ironed out a long time ago. I would think twice knowing what I know now before buying this car.
