Thor Motor Coach - Brand new 2018 Axis Class A with windshield wipers with ONLY one speed, and a mile long list of defects and problems.
Update by user May 09
Would you knowingly buy any vehicle, whether a used $6,000 Geo Metro or a $100,000 brand new motorhome, if you knew that the windshield wipers only work at one single speed, with no other options or possibility to fix it? Would you enter a new motorhome, see regular, multi-speed windshield wiper controls on your steering wheel, have the manual confirm the proper use of such controls, buy the motorhome and not be pissed when you realize those control are dummies, replaced by a Thor button with one single speed option? Would you allow your child to ride on a school bus if you knew the bus only had limited function windshield wipers, or would you consider that a dangerous safety issue?

Thor has to go out of business, and so do the dealerships that knowingly sell their piece of crap, overpriced motorhomes. I took possession of.
Brand new Class A Axis 2018 at the beginning of Febuary. It has been in the shop for a month and still no estimated time of delivery. No quality control from Thor or the dealership, although the latter makes you pay $1,000 for quality control before they give you the unit. After having the Axis I noticed that, among other things, the windshield wipers on the steering wheel did not function at all.
There is a button on the dashboard, installed by Thor, that bypasses the Ford control and only allows for one speed. Too fast for light rain, and definitely not enough for Florida downpours. The manuals, which I looked over before buying the Axis, tell a different story. The Ford manual has a chapter on his wipers system and no mention that it was not activated; the Thor manual does not mention wipers at all, let alone that they have one single speed.
Thor will not take responsibility for this obvious safety issue, the dealer will not take responsibility for selling a u it eith misguided information and a visible but not functioning system.
Does anyone have a motorhome with the single speed wipers? If they do not fix this for me, I think I will file for Lemon Law.
