In my Ford Focus, I can choose the normal manual speed options or AUTO or OFF. When OFF is selected, it means the wipers are OFF. and if any manual option is selected it it will behave like convential wipers. If Auto is selected, it will wipe at any speed it likes. To turn off Auto, simple select OFF or any one of the manual speed options. Simple.
My car also have automatic headlights. And I set mine to turn off 40 seconds after I turn off the car (Follow Me Home) maknig it extremely useful to see climbing the stairs to my home and unlocking the front door.
Also have anti-glare rear-mirror
My car is a 2012 Ford Focus Trend. Winning Blue colour.
