2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: Crazy Wipers
October 20, 2010
Our 2010 Mitsubishi Outlander is equipped with rain-sensing automatic wipers. Push up on the stalk to sweep the window once. One notch down puts on the auto wipers and you can supposedly adjust the frequency by turning a dial on the stalk. Push one more notch to turn them on regular, one more and you get double time.
The weird thing is, when you put them on auto, nothing happens. You'd think they would at least sweep once to let you know they are on duty. As I was driving the window was getting pretty wet and yet nothing from the wipers. I tried adjusting the frequency, nothing. I had to clear the window myself. But then later when the rain stopped, the wipers started going double time. This happened over and over. They do whatever they want whenever they want.
When they do work, the blades are still fresh and clean the window well. The arms give you good coverage. The rear wiper cleans well, too. But the automatic feature, not so good.
Does anyone else have an Outlander? Do your wipers work the same way?
