A really astute driver could probably detect the rain. That said, I'll let you know what I think of these after I pick up my car next week.
:grin: LOL! There are so many little convenience options that I thought "gee, are we getting to be that lazy?", but once I had them, my reaction was similar to yours. I'm thoroughly loving all the little convenience options!I LOVE these wipers!
I didn't realize they were on until it started raining when they came to life. At one point, it was a torrential rain and the wipers were automatically on HIGH. When the rain slowed, so did the wipers.
This is a great option.
I leave mine on auto at virtually all times. If I need to quickly wipe the windshield, or make it realize there's condensation on it, I quickly pull the lever towards me and quickly release (which also activates a brief spray of washer fluid).Do you just leave the wipers on and they stop going when it isn't raining? Have to admit I have noticed the auto adjustment to the wipers but I still turn them off when it isn't raining.
The Ascent has that as I use it all the time when it is just misting out instead of the auto wipers.Must be the control freak in me. I don't use the Auto on my headlights or anything else!
Robert, I think that our Outbacks had an additional setting where you could push the entire stalk upwards instead of rotating it downwards for a Mist type setting, to avoid having to dispense the washer fluid? I'll check it out when I leave for work in a bit.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but, your wipers always acted like intermittent wipers. Only the Touring trim comes with rain sensing wipers.Limited with windshield change due to stone damage. New Subaru windshield installed, now rain sensing acts like typical intermittent wipers. Anyone have this issue?
A Rain Sensing Windshield Wiper system that automatically operates and monitors the wiper speed based on the amount of rainfall is standard on Touring.
