It appears that you have a faulty switch in your wiper activation relay. A good dealership or independent shop or will be able to replace it easily.

Great car - family owned it forever. Few problems that were not mileage-appropriate.
Car Review: 2006 BMW 330i
December 28, 2008, 05:28 AM
I was able to spend 4 months using this as a daily driver. Overall great car, easy to see why the 3-series is so popular with the press and populace. Engine is strong and flexible - nice power range (but not quite enough power for me - need the twin turbo), automatic transmission shifts smoothly and delivers power as it's needed (including manual shifting). The non-sports package seats were a disappointment - not nearly enough support. I find the run-flat tires to be a big downer - they cup as they wear, so they give the driver a grinding feeling when braking hard. Lights and electrical system performed well, as did the interior controls. I'll write another review of the 335i once I get it.
Car Review: 2007 Toyota Prius
December 22, 2008, 02:17 AM
My pal needed an SUV to take his family to the snow for a week and I offered to let him use mine, in trade for his spanking-new Prius. After less than a week we were ready to trade back. Decent vehicle but not much fun to drive, and the car beeping at the driver when the gear selector is in reverse reeks of the ultimate in 'you can't possibly be smart enough to realize you just put the car in reverse' mentality. No thanks!
Car Review: 2005 Toyota Sequoia
September 18, 2008, 10:44 PM
Our Sequoia has been a steady workhorse for the family for 4 years. We've taken it up and down the coast a number of times and it's never let us down - the electrical outlet in the rear allows someone to work on their computer as if in a business class seat. We've towed the race car many times and it always has plenty of power and handles great. It's also very comfortable in both front and rear. The driver seat doesn't have quite as many adjustments as I'd like and the navigation system stinks by design, but aside from that, no complaints. Aside from some electrical problems associated with the aftermarket alarm system, and a crack in the windshield due to a rock, the thing's been totally reliable and solid. No wonder Toyota is taking so much market share...
Car Review: 2000 Volvo V70

I have the 'R' version and this car has never reached its potential. The engine pulls well but the transmission is abysmally suited for its turbo-lagged output. Manual shifting needed frequently. The suspension is a bit too soft but the steering's fairly precise. Overall reliability has been fair, not great.
