Wish mine worked right

Ok - this is my first Ford and I was really looking forward to some of the features of the Focus. While the "auto wipers" wasn't necessarily one of them I thought it was a bonus. To date I would rate mine (10 months now) as poor in operation. Mine tend to work ok for a few minutes then stop - after the windshield gets so rain covered I can't see then they'll start again. This is regardless of where I have the sensitivity set. I was much happier with my old intermittent wipers with Rainex (no I have not put any on this car). This random stopping occurs often in a 25 minute drive in the rain. If I could revert to intermittent wipers I would.
