I am shocked by the low number of posts in this area.

 

I just put an application of Rain-X on the new C-Maximus, including all windows and the skylight.  I use Rain-X on my SAAB and love it.

 

I use Gliptone on my SAAB leather...I wonder how that might do on the Maximus.

I've been using Rain-X for over 25 years, and have great experience with it.  As my cars have become more aerodynamic over the years, the rain doesn't have time to stay on the windshield.  I rarely use wipers.  I also apply it on my headlights, as it keeps dirty water from sticking to the lens, and giving a clearer less diffused light.

With fantastic auto-wipers, I've never felt the need.

I'll have to try it on my backup camera.  The lens is always getting dirty now.

I also have auto wipers on the SAAB, but the rain-x does wonders.

My auto-wipers are terrible, all settings seem to wait until it's almost impossible to see before wiping.  They're so useless I'd rather have plain old intermittent wipers.

 

Is that not normal for this car?  Where's the sensor?  Maybe something I can adjust?

There is ring on the wiper lever to set the sensitivity.

The auto-wipers do exactly what I want, except when there's so little moisture that it gets smeary.

I'm aware of the ring.  At the lowest setting, the wipers don't activate until it's impossible to see through the windshield.  At the highest setting, they wait until the windshield is about 70% covered in raindrops.

Traded in a 2002 Cadillac in the C-Max. The auto wipers in the Caddy worked better, but that may just be the difference between GM and Ford.
