Something I noticed on the Terrain that I think is a nice feature is the headlights will come on when you have your windshield wipers on. Takes about 5 seconds for this to happen. I think that is a good safety feature.

I agree. Some states have a law that requires you to turn your lights on when the wipers are on. Makes perfect sense to me. Glad it is included on the Terrain.

(Patiently waiting on mine to come in, sometime in late Jan!)

Has anyone verified that this is indeed a feature present on the Terrain? I drove in the rain yesterday for about 300 miles with a couple of stops and in various degrees of light based on the intensity of the storm. It sure seemed like the lights were coming on at times based on the degree of darkness and not due to the fact that the wipers were on. I noticed that, after one stop, they didn't come on at all so I had to turn them on manually. I also haven't found anything in the manual that states this is a feature.

Wish I could help more, but this is generally the case in Ontario, Canada.
Headlights required from 1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour before sunset then Daytime Running Lights between.
Also, there is a photocell that turns the headlights on the Terrain when it is a certain level of "dark" out.
We leave the Lights setting to Auto and it works great for the most part.

Have you tried leaving the lights in Auto mode to see what happens?
