What's up with the "on window" rear wipers?

What's the de al with these things. Why do they seem to fail more then not?

Not only on explorers, but all the Pontiac/Chevy/Olds vans and other SUVs that have the rear wiper built into the window.

Probably over 80% of the vehicles around here have that wiper stuck in a weird position.

Because they aren't used as often, therefore corrosion or dirt is allowed to build up.

Heard the same thing, and makes sense actually. However, I see lots of SUVs around here with them on just as fast/often as the front wipers too!

It definitely makes sense, but I mean some I see can't be over just 1-2 years old
