Hi all,
How often do you replace your wiper blades? How long do you expect a pair to last?
Thanks!

well you do not replace the "Blade", you replace the rubber insert. They usually last around a year depending on how often they are used.

I think the Bosch Teflon are the best for aftermarket wiper blades. I would stick with OEM (Honda) I think they are the best wipers I have ever had on a car. My opinion. Good luck shopping for new ones.

I still have my OEMs too, almost been two years. They're starting to streak a little once in a while, but I'm going to try to make it through winter with them, then get new OEM ones in the spring.

A lot of places around here are having a "winter special". You can get new inserts for like ten bucks.

I should probably do that. Mine are still the first set that came with the car, and they were never that good. They are streaky (especially in winter) and they make that awful noise.
