Wipe the wipers really good with a sponge or use those squeegee sponges at the gas pump and really scrub the contact patch of the wiper that touches the windshield. Worst case scenario-buy new blades but the ones you have should be okay.

I have found that when this happens it's usually because there's some kind of gook on the wipers or windshield. If you clean the windshield extremely thoroughly (with a lot of elbow grease); and the wipers, too, the problem should go away. It's also possible that the wipers have dried up and are no longer flexible, if you're in a dry/hot part of the country.

The original windshield wipers suck. Replace them with some better stuff, and the problem will go away (as it will if you give it a while).

Another way to help them is to put some of the sight-stuff on your windshield, it does for the glass what wax does for the paint.

I put Rain-X on my windshield and they do stutter in light rain. But this happned on my other car when I just put a fresh coat of Rain-X.

I've had them stutter with Rain-X as well.

BTW - what size wiper does the 6 take? I don't think it's in the manual and I haven't bothered to measure yet.
