2016 Honda Pilot Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers

A great new feature found on the 2016 Pilot Elite is rain-sensing windshield wipers. If you’re driving in the rain they can come in pretty handy, because they automatically control the speed of the wipers based on the amount of rain hitting the windshield. They must be turned off before entering a car wash.

Wipers That Smear, Streak or Chatter

A buildup of road film, oil, or grease on the windshield or the wiper blades can cause the wiper blades to smear, streak, or chatter when being used. Normally wiper blades are good for about 6 months but if you are experiencing these symptoms you may want to try the following.

• Use Glass Cleaner to thoroughly clean the windshield removing anything that might be stuck to the glass. Windshield washer fluid and rain alone will not remove pesky debris.

• Use Windshield Washer Concentrate Cleaner & Antifreeze straight from the bottle on a soft cloth to clean the wiper blades. Doing so will condition the blade rubber. If the wiper blades still smear, streak, or chatter then you may want to consider replacement.
