Could someone please tell me about the wipers? I ask, because in my current car when I have the wipers on continuous and stop at a junction, they automatically switch to intermittent. I find this rather annoying, not to mention dangerous at times especially when it's chucking it down, so was wondering if Corsa wipers do the same? My 58 plate Corsa D didn't do this, in fact, the only car I've had (and I've had plenty!!) that does it is my current car - the Ibiza. Cheers peeps!

The only car that we have owned that did this was our 2003 C3, our Fiesta didn't do this, and I've not noticed our Corsa do it.

My wipers work perfectly in all conditions, after 6K miles I've driven in a fair few downpours from light rain to torrential including heavy spray on motorway too. However I do not have the technical pack so I just turn mine on and off manually as needed or use the excellent adjustment range on the intermittents.

From replies so far, it sounds like Corsa has what I would term 'normal' wipers! In the Ibiza when it's raining, whatever setting the wipers are on automatically 'switches down' a setting - eg if on speed2 they switch to speed 1 and if on speed 1 the switch to intermittent. When it's pouring with rain and I get to a junction, I find myself with no visibility as the wipers have gone into their energy saving mode. I have to flick the stalk again up one setting then back down so they stay wiping whilst I look to get out of junctions.

I have auto-wipers and they are great. They adjust themselves well to the conditions, and to how fast you have set them on the stick.

If it is pouring, and you have the intermittent time set to its fastest, it goes right up to storm-speed wipers - but it is doing what you're telling it to do :lol:
