Reading some of the other reviews, I think some people are installing these incorrectly. The symptoms they describe sound like the first set I bought, which was for my girlfriend's 2008 Nissan Rogue. When I installed the driver's side wiper (the longer of the two) it didn't make good contact with the windshield and would have left huge streaks. There is a way to adjust how the wiper sits by fiddling with the mount. Once I did that (per the included instructions), it worked like a champ. I just put a pair on my 2010 Xterra, and didn't have to do anything special...they worked great from the start. It sometimes pays to read the instructions.
As far as the blades scratching the windshield, the only thing I can think of that would cause that to happen is if they forgot to take the plastic cover off the blade. I can't see how someone might do that, but the blade itself is pretty flexible, so I have no idea how it could scratch auto glass.
These wipers are fantastic in the rain, especially when brand new. They do not squeak or smear while removing all water from your windshield.
In the snow, they are not that bad, if you park your car in a garage anyway. The problem with these blades is that they do not hold up well in cold weather, especially when coated with snow and ice.
I've had these blades on my Blazer for about 7 months, and during the fall they were great. Once the bad weather started to come (Buffalo, NY) the snow and ice began to build up on the blades while parked outside. The design of these blades includes plastic end caps that keep the main blade strip from moving. But when water has collected inside the cap and it freezes, the expanded ice loosens the cap and it eventually falls off. After that, the blade will slowly ease its way out from the holder slot. If you do not slide it back right away (every day or during the drive) it will ruin the blade when it wipes. This results...
When I bought these blades for my Honda Civic, I also bought a set of Bosch Icon blades for my wifes mini van (which takes a 28" blade). The Bosch blades where much more expensive than the Rain-X, so I thought this would be a good way to find out if the extra cost was worth it. Within a few weeks of installing the Rain-X blades, they were already not wiping very well. It was like there were areas of the blade that weren't contacting the windshield very well. They also started falling apart. I lost the end pieces after about 2 months on one blade. From that point on, the blade itself would start sliding up the arm. I would then have to re-position it back.
The other major issue with these blades was how ineffective they were at freeway speeds (50 mph+). They would lift as the blade was on the down stroke. Which shows you how bad aerodynamically they are. As a comparison, the 28" Bosch blades on my wifes van never had this problem.
