Yea I know... I talk to much, but I just remembered something I want to ask.. I got the package 2 Tiburon, which basically is a base with the sunroof and cd player. I want a rear windshield wiper on my car and I talked to a guy at the dealership about it. He said they won't do it since it would be to hard or something. He then said something about having to punch a hole in the back window itself to fit it in which is why it would be hard to do it.. Then to keep me happy he started saying, "Oh I don't know why the wiper doesn't come standard, Hyundai should of had it come standard." But obviously after he said that punching a hole in the window thing I knew he had no idea of what he was talking about... I don't think he even knew my car was a Tiburon. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> But I'm just curious was this guy was just stupid or does Hyundai really not do add on rear windshield wipers.. Since it's gonna be real annoying driving my car if it's snowing like crazy and I can't see out the back. Any info on this would be nice, after all it is winter already. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

You would actually need a hole new back hatch. If you look at the the cars next to each other (one with a wiper one without) you will notice that the 2 hatches are different.

IMO it is not worth it and I don't like the way the rear wiper looks but if you realy want one then search the salvage yards for a hatch with one. If you are locky you may even find one the same color.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I'd do the same too. You'd save a lot of money that way. The only hard part would be the button and wiring. Don't forget that too.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> I myself love the rear wiper.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

The only time I use the rear wiper is to clear it off in the mornings. Other than that... At speed, nothing ever lands on it. just flies right over it in the slip stream.

As a matter of fact... My rear wiper stopped working today when I tried wiping some morning dew off of the rear window. Nothing. Maybe it is a fuse... I hope the motor didn't burn out.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Ditto. If it is raining and I'm on the highway my rear windshield is literally dry. Granted I'm a freakin' speed demon <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

It could be pouring like there's no tomorrow and my rear window is totally dry. No need for it. I use it 4 or 5 times a year, max!

If you drive faster than everyone else you don't need to see behind you anyway.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>
