New Wipers

My wipers are starting to streak and not work so great so I need to replace them. I am not to thrilled with the factory wipers so I am looking for something to replace them. Anyone know a great set of wiper blades that will fit?

Re: New Wipers

I have not had very good luck with any of the "blade" type of wipers.

Re: New Wipers

i got new Bosch Evolution wipers... and hate them. They consistently streak unless it's pouring rain. It wasn't just mine, either... I returned and exchanged them and new ones did the same thing. Best ones I've had so far are the OEM ones.

Re: New Wipers

I bought the Michelin flat blades from Costco, they look nice and work well, these flat blades have tension throughout the whole blade and not just several points as the metal ones.

Re: New Wipers

I guess I should also specify that they need to be able to perform well in the winter, snow and ice etc.

The only Wiper that got a "Good" rating after 6 months of use from Consumer Reports is the Rain•x Latitude
