I've had my Q50 for about 2days. Last night I was driving in the rain on the freeway and I could hardly keep the car straight Bc I couldn't see the road. Is this a typical problem. Does anyone have this problem. I was so unsure that I had to exit the freeway. I was thinking of applying some RainX to possibly improve the view.

Have you tried cleaning the windshield with glass cleaner to remove any type of residue that may be on it?

You can always get better wipers too. And yes, rainX will help.

I've noticed that the wipers are terrible, and living in my area, we receive a lot of rain annually, and I do have rainX applied to my windshield but the wipers tend to streak still, so I'm going to replace my wiper blades with rainX horizon. I had those on my previous car and they were really good and didn't make any noise what so ever

you can get dealer to replace your defective wipers,if your car is less than 6 months old under warranty.

It seems unlikely, but I've seen some wipers come with protective guards on them. It's worth double checking that there isn't a plastic sheath over the blades.

My GS has kinda bad wipers too. At speed they sling more water back onto the windshield than they wipe off. I'm looking into better ones when it comes time. Typically replace them every 6-8 months. I'm the kind of guy that hits them first thing in the morning to scrape the dust off so they wear out fast.

Another possibility might be that the car was an early build, and had been sitting out in the sun for months before being bought. The rubber of the wipers would certainly "age." In the past, I've renewed my wipers with the same stuff that I would put on the rubber seals around the car. It cleans and revitalizes them. Just let them "dry" for a few hours before putting them back on the windshield.

Mine's an early build. I went through hours of heavy, if not torrential, rains in November, while driving through Alabama. I thought the wipers were fine.

Could be you just got a bad set.

^^ Agreed. I haven't had any issues with my wipers. They work great. My windshield is treated every 2-3 weeks with RainX, so that might be a reason why they work great.

Haven't had any issues with mine, but then again the main problem here in California is a lack of rain.
