At least two of the rental cars I've had recently have this style of wiper blade. The two that I noticed them on were a Pontiac G6 and a Chevrolet Impala. They look wierd, but they seem to work very well.

what do you use? What works the best...the wipes or the liquid you add to the washer reservoir?

amen brother...:D




Exactly...I buy the cheap blades and I use rain X. I can't imagine paying $40 bucks for wiper blades. Im here in Chicago so in the winter they all get %@#$ up with the ice and stuff so I stick to the cheap blades.

Funny story, although secured to the extent of the wiper blades, doing 40 the other day, my drivers side wiper flew off for no reason! Crazy to see happen, and I'm still not sure how it did, but now I need a new drivers side wiper, maybe I'll get something expensive and hope it goes well haha.

I use the bottle of rain-X and wipe it on. I have never used any of the spray products or wipes.
(their car wash......its superb!!!)
