IT WAS APPROXIMATELY AUG. 5, 2015. IT WAS RAINING THAT EVENING, AND THE WIPER QUIT WORKING WHILE MY WIFE WAS DRIVING OUR 2013 FORD ESCAPE SEL IN A PARKING LOT. WE WERE UNABLE TO GET IT WORKING AND HAD TO CHANGE VEHICLES UNTIL THE RAIN STOPPED THAT NIGHT. WE TOOK IT TO A LOCAL FORD DEALER. THE WIPER MOTOR HAD ALREADY GONE BAD. THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT'S EMPLOYEE INDICATED THE CAR'S EUROPEAN STYLE WIPERS WERE MORE PRONE TO FAILURE.
