    I see you have a 97. They have a stupid reverse j hook, probably the only car ever made with this design. If you are using the new one piece wiper blades then they are probably binding a bit.

    Even if it does rain, I really don't like to use my wipers unless it is downpouring. They drive me nuts no matter the car. If you clean it really good, it will bead up and run off. At least my experience.

    wax works too...I never use my wipers and it drives people crazy...hit 40mph and all the water flies off and they are like "huh...well look at that".

    I also use a shorter passenger side wiper than the drivers side...i think its like 2inches shorter to be exact. Doesnt hang over the plastic at the bottom of the windshield and it looks right when they are in the resting position.
