007 - Thanks for input. This is a mechanical drive problem. Most common description of problem is - drivers side wiper stops at street edge or disappears just past edge. Passenger arm rotates almost 180 and wiper becomes trapped in drivers side arm just below bottom edge of windshield. Usually both wiper and arm assemblies not visible. Power is still on to motor. Temporary solution is to turn wipers off - remover passenger side arm and continue to safe place using only drivers side wiper. Rain X as previously mentioned does an amazing job of clearing water off windshield allowing one to continue driving until repairs can be made.

wow if this was a real problem id expect at least a dozen or two complaining, not? and with no answer to questions above about mechs telling what failed ..i'd think its not a series problem but isolated. heck maybe on wrong tooth to start to get wiper out of your perceived line of sight..maybe not.. and i have driven cement mixers to OTR and can still see when wipers are not on but some perceptions are differnt/.

You can focus on creating a national recall, or you can focus on why you are having a problem very few others seem to be having.

Betting one plan will be much more productive than the other but proceed as you wish...

I'll stick with my original post suggesting you have a pro look at it to see if the REAL problem can be identified and repaired, then move on.

This is not an isolated problem. Just did a quick search and found about ten Challenger owners with THE SAME PROBLEM!
PM Me for the list.
