2016 Honda Pilot: Rain-Sensing Wipers
by Kelly Hellwig, Managing Editor on April 15, 2016
The 2016 Honda Pilot in Elite trim comes standard with variable intermittent rain-sensing wipers, a feature we don't often have the opportunity to test here in sunny Southern California. But last week a light April shower prompted me to wake our Honda's wipers from their slumber, freeing them to swing back and forth as needed during my morning drive across town.
As typical, the rain didn't last long and we were back to dry conditions by the afternoon. I didn't give the wipers a second thought until I pulled into an automatic car wash to spruce-up the Pilot's exterior. Swish, the wipers sprung back to life.
I moved the control firmly back to the "Off" position. Not likely to be seeing rain here again anytime soon.
