i dont know if this is a canadian thing or a slt option but mine have heated fluid and upon command starting i see fluid in the snow under the wipers. -45c in winnipeg the other night and not a problem the next morning. I was under the impression it shoots out the heated fluid onto the wiper blades when warming up.

works for me anyways
