Unfortunately Tony I suspect this lack of high speed wiper performance was pretty common for cars engineered in the mid 1990s!

Cars are so much more capable now, this probably wouldn't be acceptable, but even so, there's probably not many owners that are likely to want to go 150mph+ in the rain! I suspect Chevy just took that view point and accepted the wiper performance.

Re: C5 wipers go off the screen!


Im suprised anyone would need wipers at that speed, anthing over
about 65ish and the screen clears itself.
If your doing 150 in anything but light rain you don't need them.
Heavier rain at that speed........... good luck !!

I agree. I didn't really need them at those speeds, but got so taken up with the moment I forgot to turn them off as speed increased.
