I don't think they've been used more than 2 days for short trips since i've had it, manage to get them going then they freeze up again 2 miles down the road, wash i use is recommended down to -5 C

Trouble is when it rains and you get water in the ends of the nozzles, which freezes.

I haven't got anything out of my washers for about 3 weeks - have to keep stopping the car on the way to work to get all the salty spray off the windscreen. I'm not sure they're any worse than other cars I've owned but it can't be beyond the skills of car designers to come up with something that doesn't freeze up so easily.

Factory-fill screenwash must have been one of the things they cheaped out on to give us the cool features. I put in some new as soon as we got the Juke because we heard they were freezing up on you Brits. Thanks for the warning. You really saved our bacon!

Mine was frozen when I picked it up but I topped it up with screen wash concentrate and it seems to have done the trick, fingers crossed.

is that for the car or a sub zero kind of bodywash for the shower to stop you freezing?

Sadly Deks - I wish it was for me....

Getting old is not good for you - you feel the cold more!!!

You should know - we were born in THAT year too

Sorry to return to mundane matters
- I've got almost neat screenwash in mine and still can't get anything out of the washers.

Mine work again now, once you have warmed the car up / left it running for a while, park it and leave for 1/2hr - 1hr to let the car's heat free them up, then run the washers to clear them out of water. Seemed to work for me!
