I hate those rain-sensing wipers. Nissan should find a way to disable them via the control panel - as you can with other features like the speed-sensitive volume control. The rain-sensing feature basically renders the intermittent wipers useless.
Nissan: Listen up! Your customers are telling you something. ">

There's got to be a way to turn them off, especially if you're getting the car washed at an automatic full service car wash.
I have the rain-sensing wipers on my '07 RX350, and I love them!
They're one of my favorite features on my car. I just move the stalk up one notch. There's the word "auto" printed on my windshield wiper stalk. Also, you can set the sensitivity of the rain-sensing function to high, low or medium. Granted, it's sometimes difficult to determine if I'm in auto or rains-sense mode(and this happens only after the car has been to the car wash and the attendants seem to know to turn off my wipers anyway) so when I'm unsure,
I move the stalk down one more notch, which turns the wipers on at regular speed.
I'd like to hear others' input on the rains-sensing wipers pertaining to the Murano though. Mine work great. On my car, they also increase in speed when the driving speed increases. The only time I have to adjust anything is when there's a light mist-type of rain, and sometimes too much sprinkles get on the windshield and I'll bump down a notch on the stalk to go to regular speed. But, otherwise, they work great.

THX for the input. Perhaps the main problem is that the wipers are speed sensitive. Rain-sensing is one thing, but I dont need my wipers moving as quickly during a mist - as they would in a downpour. Under those conditions, the faster I drive the mist seems to evaporate and I do not need the wipers to speed up. Anyway, something tells me this will be perfected in the future -- on all car models. THX again.
