I tried posting this to the XC60 thread, but that hasn't provided much information. Maybe this is a more general problem across volvos? Here's the original post ...

I recently purchased a new XC60 R-Design Platinum. I absolutely love the car, it drives incredibly well and overall I am incredibly happy. However, I am a picky person, and have a few complaints about the vehicle. Rather than list them, I'll tackle them one at a time. My first complaint is the intermittent wiper system. I have had several cars in the past with intermittent wipers, and never had a problem with them. However, on my XC60 the wipers are very slow to turn on. It takes quite a bit of water on my windshield before they activate. I complained to the service department, but they say that everything looks normal. I asked if I could increase their sensitivity somehow, but they claim this is not possible. What should I do? Should I demand a replacement system, or is there in fact a way to adjust their sensitivity? I was thinking of making a video of how poor the rain sensors work, but so far I've been a bit lazy in this regard.
