Default Replacement WiperBlades??

Anyone have a favorite? I have always used OEM, but these on the Nox did not hold up well (had issues from the start to be honest)...I just had new OEM's put on my company Nox, and not impressed with those either....Need a nice set for my Nox.

Bosch Icon Wiper blades received ratings of best 5 out of 5 in January of 06. I have been buying them for my vehicles ever since.

Best wiper blades that I have ever used.

Angry Rear Wiper

How do you change the rear wiper. Car is only 16months and this will be the third one. Thinking the dealer is putting on old stock.

That's a good question. Never touched mine nor do I hardly use it. Best thing to do is get the auto zone guys to do it for you so you can learn what they do.They put them on free anyways with the purchase.

Default Rear Wiper

Well, they messed with it for a while and decided they didn't know either.
Someone please tell me I don't have to go to the dealer again.

You should just be able to match it up by the
length even without an available part number.

I've tried and tried to like the Bosch Icons... but they SUCK! I've purchased them three times for my wife's 2007 Mazda 6i and twice for my old F150. Each time, I got less than 6 months out of them before they started streaking. (Before you ask, no windshield blemishes or extreme road grime/bugs.)

Now... RainX Lattitudes have been on her Mazda for the last nearly 18 months with only minimal streaking developing over the last month or so and I will be buying a set for my Nox as soon as the Duralast Flex blades wear out... wich for now also seem to be doing better than the Icon's did. Bosch will never get another dime from me for their blades.

Also, if you can find them- Michelin makes a badass metal frame blade. IDK if they've ventured into flex blades yet. I have not been able to find them since I moved to Texas, but in Virginia I had them on both my cars.

I could NEVER! I get free tires if a car that has Michelins on them LMAO! Reason I'm running around on BS Dueler H/T Alenza's...I work for Bridgestone as a Technical Sales Rep

I ended up going w/ Rainx Latitudes...I had a credit @ wally world I needed to use on something! They had the Bosch, but only Marathon and did not have the right type of fitting. Anything imo will be better than stock!

I still have the stock ones and they are still good, going on 7 months now. Wonder how they will hold up to the Texas summer.

My .02 cents..

I fancy the OEM windshield wipers because they're (A) cheap, at $10 and (B) last a decent amount of time. Please note that the former reason is the primary reason why I dig them

As far as their durability is concerned, I seem to be getting at least a year worth of usage out of my wipers. Maybe I'm in the minority on this one..

I still have factory wiper blades on our Nox so you may be onto something!
