Chrysler Sebring owners have reported 3 problems related to windshield wiper/washer (under the visibility category).
Windshield wipers completely failed when switched to high speed operation. Went back in operation after pressing down on wiper arm. 2nd time this failure occurred driving in blinding rain on the highway. Chrysler did nothing to remedy.

Winshield wiper stopped when switch turned to high power under terrible conditions pouring rain, going through construction site, no breakdown lane. Wipers were frozen in a non-parralel position, switch unresponsive and visiblity was 0. Managed to get off highway and was assisted by a gentleman who pushed the wiper blades down. Then tried switch and it worked. Wipers have worked since and repair dealer (crowley) was unable to duplicate failure. Crowley replaced wiper arm system but they are unclear as to what happened and consequenlt if the problem is solved. Lack piece of mind now about driving and needing wipers afraid they might fail again when most needed. Dt.
This problem has almost cost me and my passenger our lives. It is not something that is reproducable on demand, but I have witnesses on the happenings. It happens at different speeds, different timings, but the amount of rain seems to be a factor. I have tried several times to resolve this at the dealer but since it is not reproducable they will not fix it. I reported this before my warranty ran out. I can not be taking chances during the rain and snowy weather an having my wipers just stop working. Roads are dark, many have no shoulder to pull off on and highways now do not have shoulders either. Please help me with this issue and getting it resolved. No safety defect listed.
