Default Rear wiper on a sedan?

Such a thing actually exists. And I took a picture of it.

This Nissan Skyline of unknown vintage lives across the street from where I
work, and I discovered it just last week. What a cool car. I always
wondered why Nissan never sold it in Canada or the US.

I have never seen the need for a rear wiper on any vehicle. They are a
waste through and through.

I found rear wipers to be very useful on my minivans in the winter.
When driving in light snow, it would accumulate on the rear window. A
quick swish of the wiper took care of it much quicker than the
defrosters.

Due to the aerodynamics, rear wipers are more "essential" on vehicles
with close to vertical rear windows. My wife's Camary doesn't collect
nearly as much spray as my Fit.

Absolutely. The 06 Civic's rear window is heavily slanted, and
collects nothing while moving, but the minivans collected loads of
snow, especially during a light snowfall...

A rear window isn't even a necessity, that why we have outside mirrors.

Don't know about the rear wiper, but Nissan is finally selling the Skyline
in the US. Its called the GT-R, has 480 horsepower out of a twin turbine V6
& costs about $85k US.

I think it's pretty safe to say the GT-R will be a "niche" vehicle.
