Just how reliable are these 'Quickclear' windscreens, I must admit I'm !Removed! annoyed! I bought a new Fiesta in 2002. The first winter I used it about 10 times and it was OK. The following winter when I put it on it only worked across a third of the windscreen. I had it replaced under warranty but didn't use need to use it for a couple of years as I'd got a company van to drive. When I did eventually use it there were sections all across the screen that weren't working. I didn't bother having it replaced again.

I bought a new Fiesta in March 2012 and, on the second time I used it, there was a narrow section on the passenger side that wasn't working.

I'd asked the salesman when I bought it about these windscreens and he told me they never had any problems with them. I just wondered if they were all faulty - you'd think, after 26 years, Ford would have got them right. :angry:
