Most Helpful Customer Reviews
If you have a Ford Escape or Mercury Mariner these are the blades you seek. We bought others at Walmart & they were just dismal failures. Michelin Stealth left large areas unwiped on both sides for some reason. Through cold, warm, rain, snow & ice the blades just sucked for our car 2008 Escape. I've read a lot of reviews for various brands since & it seems you should stick to OEM for wipers in most cases I especially found that to be true with this type of vehicle for some reason. Additionally these blades go on so smooth & easy. I spent too many minutes trying to install the Michelin then when I got the Valeo 2 months later it honestly took me longer to get the Michelin off then it did to get the Valeo installed. If you need parts like this & you don't have an Escape do yourself a favor & tell Amazon what kind of car you have then click through parts available & look for OEM parts. The parts your car was engineered with (in theory) will always be your best chance for success.
UPDATE - Valeo has always been my go to blade, it is OEM blade on 3 of our cars, but lately I have been getting mixed results.
ORIGINAL REVIEW - Pontiac G8 - 26" & 15" blades
After just over 30 days these blades are streaking and squealing, along with chattering, maybe 26" is too big for this design. I have these on a Pontiac G8 and they don't work as well as the Gen 1 blades and are cheaper made, they use standard wiper refills inside the housing now, with ends that are designed not to come off (but you could if you push a plastic tab inside the ends), with the blade moving about a half an inch left to right inside the housing (which is probably why they are failing just over 30 days, and as a result, I can not return them). The Gen 1 blades had all an all in one design where the blades would not move inside the housing so they would not chatter, or squeak, to me the Gen 2 is a giant step backwards, not forwards, using the "old" style...
Put these on wife's Mariner about 2 weeks ago.and it was about 10-15 degrees out and still has been cold. Worked excellent in light snow we had with no chatter on the windshield and also when using the windshield wash at zero! Very pleased with product! I remeber when Anco products were of this quality, but seems like those days are gone, so moved onto another brand of wiper. 4/2015. Ordered these again as needed replaced after about a year and a half. Excellent product as made it thru 2 rough Chicago winters. Highly recommend and exact fit for 2008 Mercury Mariner and Ford Escape. See they no longer carry, but hope they continue to here on Amazon.
