windshield wipers

How long do they normally last? Are the more expensive ones better? Every time I go to any auto parts store I feel like their trying to rip me off.

  • I really like Bosch windshield wipers and also the RainX windshield wipers. I change mine every couple of years.

  • I live in the Lake Erie Snow Belt, we tend to replace ours yearly to be ready for the bad weather during the winter. I prefer the heavy duty triple blade type. They hold up better in the ice and snow....

  • I'd say at least once a yr. If they start squeeking you know you've gone too long. We get ours at a car store like Pepboys, that sell car supplies.acasr dealers do rip you off.

  • So having issues with them after 5 months isn't normal?

  • I've never really noticed how long they actually last. I guess it would depend on how often you use your car. We have one car that we use all the time, but our second car doesn't get used that much.
