First thing's first, these are very low cost, so don't expect them to last more than a year...now that that's out of the way...I know you can't find a better price on basic wiper blades anywhere else, at least I haven't been able to.
I buy these wiper blades for all of my cars because they are less than 1/2 the cost of anything I can buy in a local store. I replace my wiper blades yearly so I really don't feel like risking three to four times the cost of these for another blade that might hold up better. These blades do their job and I've yet to have one prematurely fall apart on me. The installation on these are just like any other wiper blade.
I'd definitely recommend these to anyone who is looking to replace their wiper blades for less than half the cost of what they would normally pay in a local store. These are an add-on item, so if I'm not planning on buying anything else, then I'll just buy a set of these for all of my vehicles and save them for the next...
My 1st Bosch Icon blade worked fine, but the next one wasn't clearing the window from day one. I suffered thru the ever-gummier smears anyway, cos I'm that cheap. When it became ridiculous, I tried a Rain-X beam model, same story. Did my 2001 Mazda Protege 2.0 ES (takes 21" driver, 19" passenger) suddenly develop a new windshield curve?! Now for 1/3 the price, I'm back to this old-fashioned reinforced wiper-contact design. Works perfectly, is less bulky than the beam blades, and still uses Bosch's one-step removal/installation, yay! If you've forgotten how to swap out your blade (and can't decipher the minuscule instruction insert) get your reminder from a YouTube video entitled "How to Replace Windshield Wipers on Your Car- Replacing Wiper Blades" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mOm2u9YqwA) to see just how simple it is. I'm so pleased. I may live in semi-desert San Diego, but my windshield gets slathered with airborne grime and bird feathers that swirl around in my...
Sometimes "old fashioned" designs just work better. These go against the trend of beam or enclosed frame "hybrid" blades. I guess some people think they look better, but they don't always work better. These wiper blades make good contact with the windshield with no gaps in coverage across the entire sweep. They are also quiet, do not lift from the windshield at highway speeds, and clear away water very well. One caveat is that these will not be used in winter conditions as those never occur where this car is operated. Due to the open frame design of these wipers, there are lots of places where snow and ice can potentially build up. So, keep that in mind if these are going to be used in snowy / icy climates.
