Maybe people aren't ordering them ... Only reason I ordered it for the heated steering wheel ... Didn't care about the heater wipers and rain auto wipers

I think the element is in the windshield. At least there is some type of element under the wipers and my guess is for future windshield replacement.
Glad I have it but does concern me that its no longer available.

I have looked and unless I take the dash apart I don't know where the plug is for the element

Fun=$$$ is probably more like it. I have a coworker who got his wife a fully loaded bells and whistles Kia and within days had a rock hit it and crack the windshield. It has so much of the safety tech (lane keeping etc) tied into the window it was like a $2k windshield to get replaced.

Yeah I bet it makes a replacement windshield big coin, at least in the context of windshield prices. Not necessarily because of the heated element lines, but because there's going to be so few out there.

I wish they would have kept it as I would have absolutely included it in my order. I drive silly distances in the winter up nort'.

Ha ha no kidding, one of the guys I worked with sold cars in the early 90's and one time he said the salesmen were standing around and they looked up a Yugo in the bluebook and it was like $16.00....no lie.
