The maximum speed setting on the windshield wipers is completely insufficient when driving on the highway / interstate during periods of rain and at speeds in excess of 45 mph. It is impossible to maintain a reasonably unobstructed view of the roadway. While traveling at higher speeds, the high-speed setting of the wipers can keep up with a mere drizzle only. A steady rain creates nearly zero visibility, while a thunderstorm or torrential rain renders the vehicle inoperable. The high-speed wiper setting on the 2011 Honda Pilot is comparable to the low speed wiper setting on the majority of other vehicles currently on the market. The service department at J.L. freed Honda in montgomeryville, Pennsylvania indicates that the wipers operate as designed.
