Default Wiper blades: your recommendations

Guys, those of you who have replaced the wiper blades - can you please give recommendations for make / size? Need for both front and rear windshields (hatch). Thanks!

Don't remember the brands I priced out but it was about $15-$20 cheaper to go through the dealer for them and they even installed. Was always told the dealer would be more but for this item my dealer was much cheaper, dealer was also cheaper for the cabin filter as well.

Thank you. Need to check the manual, but how often to replace the cabin filter? It's not yearly, is it?

I think it says 12-15K miles so basically yearly and yes it does make a big difference in air quality from my experiences.

Where is the cabin filter? I like the rainex wipers, the ones that lay flat. Not sure the size. It will say in the book at the auto parts store.


If I die, bury me in my truck, because it's never been in a hole it can't get out of!

Um no, sorry to burst your bubble. I know for a fact the Trico Force is most definitely available in 15" size, have one on the way from Amazon.

That's good to know but I needed mine in a pinch and couldn't wait for amazon. Auto zone / oriellys auto and advance auto didn't even have a listing 15 inch with the correct connection for the wiper arm.
