General Motors Dealerships to Feature HotShot® Heated Washer Fluid System on 2006 Cadillac DTS and Buick Lucerne

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 24, 2005--Cadillac and Buick dealerships nationwide are showcasing the first arrivals of vehicles that feature HotShot, the revolutionary hot washer fluid and windshield de-icing system. Manufactured by Microheat, Inc., HotShot is the first product in 75 years to solve the problem of frozen or grimy windshields, and the product will be featured on the Model Year 2006 Cadillac DTS and Buick Lucerne.

Introduced commercially in 2002, HotShot features a patented cycling technology that intelligently heats fluid to an exact temperature and sprays the fluid at a precise time interval to quickly and efficiently remove snow, ice, bugs and road grime from vehicles. The all-season, all-weather system can be activated at any time during vehicle operation.

"Drivers throughout the nation can now enjoy HotShot, which is useful in every season and driving condition," said Microheat President and CEO Gary Pilibosian. "The system automatically removes snow, ice, bugs and road grime from windshields in under 90 seconds with the push of a button. HotShot is the biggest breakthrough in washer/wiper technology in over 75 years."

"General Motors is the first OEM to bring HotShot to drivers as a standard feature and we expect the response from consumers will be overwhelming," he continued. "Market research shows that within 10 years, HotShot will be a standard feature on all new vehicles in North America."

HotShot is also available to the aftermarket in 50 countries including every major automotive market through an exclusive agreement with Webasto, the world leader in aftermarket distribution and installation. The system is also available for heavy-duty trucks and military vehicles.

Microheat, Inc. is a Farmington Hills, Michigan-based, privately-held company fully focused on the design, manufacture, production and sale of its advanced fluid heating system products and related components for integration into washer/wiper system modules of cars and trucks. To date, Microheat has received three U.S. patents--two related to the critical components and processes that give HotShot its unique capabilities, and one for its innovative solenoid. Some 25 additional patents are pending. The company is TS16949 certified. For more information and photographic images from Microheat and HotShot, please visit http://www.microheat.com.
