I just experienced my first rainfall since picking up my new car and I noticed the wipers (driver's especially) chatter and jump as they sweep. Has anybody noticed this as well? I have a video of it if anyone would like to see what I mean.

I haven't heard of it. Odd.

It could just be that they are brand new.

I find Rain X always helps with wipers, even old ones. It helps the wipers run smoothly across the glass and it works so damn well you almost never need to use your wipers.

Thanks for the replies. I forgot to mention the entire car including the windshield is ceramic coated. I wonder if that may be causing it. This weekend I will clean off the entire windshield and apply some RainX.

Just an update...there was obviously some type of spray adhesive all over the windshield. My guess is it was left behind from the white plastic that the car was shipped with. Cleaned with glass cleaner and applied RainX. No more chatter. Thanks for the responses.

Glad to hear it. That was definitely an odd thing.

And sticking wipers are such a pain
