I usually buy Toyota inserts which work well on my Sienna (much better than any third party I've tried).
Just got another pair from a dealership and found that they started to be more expensive ($10 a piece).
Looking at all these positive reviews decided to try a pair of TRICO just for the winter period, hoping they would handle better the snow and ice.
In the case, they don't perform well -> back to Costco.

I got them last year too, on a car I hardly drove and only for short trips once / twice a week and just noticed they were already streaking pretty bad.... so note that these will only lasted one year....

Thanks, OP. Ordered a pair for my car. It's been about a year since I changed them, so it was due.

No one could answer if OEM wiper blades are better than these ones. I must say I use OEM Honda wiper blades on my Accord and if replaced before winter they do last the whole winter and much more at least a full year round.
So why would someone buy these if OEM wiper blades are good enough? Since no one answered my question, which is the same question another poster asked, I'm just going to get Honda OEM blades. Thanks all :)
Likely it is because the OEM wiper blades were not performing well. There are instances where aftermarket works better than the OEM blades. Mazda has the worst wiper blades I've ever used. Pretty much junk. So, I swapped them out for aftermarket blades. Doesn't matter which brand I got, they all worked better than the OEM Mazda.

If you're blades are working fine for you, there is no reason to switch them.

Depends on which Mazda oem blades, the ones that come with car are good, the replacement they sell here at dealers are their Mazda "value line" which are cheap to buy but cheap in quality too

Thanks OP. The OEM blades on my Forester are 2.5 years old and I just got a full new set of rubber inserts (3 pieces) from the stealership -- cost was $40+. Got the Trico to give it a try and compare.
If my sanity has to go, it is my job to keep its absence to myself. :D

Package just arrived, 7 of the 8 wipers ordered were in the box....packing list says there are 8 however.

Edit: Costco contacted vendor, they're sending out the missing one.

Anyone use these on a 2014+ Sentra? They have a 28" and 15". It is really hard to find a driver side what will hold the windshield right for the entire swipe. Any experience?

ordered online yesterday.. first time buying from Costco.ca. The order has been in received stage for over 24 hours ... would Costco update the status at all or it just slow???
No status update. Costco packages generally arrive shipped via UPS. (2-3 business days is typically the timeframe)

They will, just often isn't timely as all the vendors do it, not Costco, since they're not the ones shipping it.

Do wipers have a relatively long shelf life? I’m wondering if I should get a second set for next year and store them in the meantime.
