And you didn't have anything done, any TSB applied? Mine did it upon every startup when I got the car and it was so annoying that I just gave up and haven't used the feature since. No desire to have dry dust/dirt rubbing across my windshield.

It would be very helpful.
Agreed. I would find it helpful as well Crystal. I have to go in soon since for the past 3 months my headlights, when set to auto, suddenly just refuse to turn on anymore when the wipers are on. If possible, I would like to address this as well during the same visit to save myself a trip.

Oh, you have one of those also? My dealership opened their Quicklane about a year or so ago and so far it hasn't been impressive for me. I had them throw on my winters during my last oil change and discovered on the drive home that they never bothered to check the pressure after they put them on, never bothered to recalibrate for the fact that I went from 18s to 17s, and never bothered to reset the oil life sensor (which I discovered about 2 weeks ago). Didn't have any of these issues before they opened Quicklane. The only time my Quicklane visit was flawless was when all I needed was an inspection. The other two times - not so flawless. Hopefully they were just working the bugs out since it was new to them.

^^I never had any TSB's applied associated with the rain sensing wipers.

Thanks for the info. Guess I'll have to inquire about it when I get around to taking it in for the auto headlight/wipers issue.
