    Same here in my 08. It does get annoying....... I asked the same question a few weeks ago on a couple different boards and the overall response was it is normal.

    turn em off and drive faster, the water will leave the windshield when you reach 100 or so.

    put rain-x on your windshield and you won't have to run the wipers as fast b/c the water will bead off.

    to the OP, are you sure it's the wiper motor you're hearing and not the sound of squeaky blades going over your windshield. go to autozone and get yourself some rain-x latitude wipers along with rain-x window treatment and you'll be golden

    Well... I would like to say If you can hear your wipers motor... turn your AC on or Turn your radio on...

    but im with simon its probably just you not having enough rain on the window to have a nice smoothe action. Cause I don't hear nuffin! NUFFIN!!!!

    Peace love and chicken grease

    For me the amount of moisture on the windshield doesn't matter. What I hear is definately the sound of the electric motor running.

    Its louder than road noise?
    You don't listen to the radio? (is it louder than the radio?)
    You don't enjoy AC? (is it louder than your AC?)

    I don't like Rain X. Once you start using it you have to keep using it. Puts a film on your windshield that is hard to get off. There's a reason professional truck drivers don't use it.

    Most of the time I only really hear it when I'm stopped and have passengers with me (when the radio's not so loud).

    It never rains here so I don't use wipers. They'll dry rot before they're used.
