[Costco] $6.99 Michelin Front Wiper Blades

Costco has its regular $3 off Michelin wiper blades promotion back just in time to change them before winter hits (winter officially starts December 21 Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes)!

I believe the last time this was on sale was at the start of March 2020.

Warehouse price is $9.99 - $3.00 = $6.99 (before tax).

Costco.ca online price is $15.99 - $3.00 = $12.99 (before tax). (This price includes shipping and handling charges.)

Price valid from 11/30/2020 to 12/06/2020.

These won’t work on rear window wipers?

What’s everyone’s experience with these. They seem to streak a lot for me.

YMMV depending on the car/window. They work fine for me.

You can always return it if it sucks.

This. Worked great on my Mazda. Terrible on Civic.

I've been using them since just before the last time they were on sale (back in March) and they're just now beginning to streak for me.

And it seems like they only have size 14 inches and up, so it'll probably too long for the rear wiper?

They work okay for a while.
They are nothing special but the price is right.

Will pick up another set. Best bang for the buck if your car doesn't have replaceable inserts.

I tried this blade and another michellin blade, but I get alot of hi pitch annoying squeaking sound. Then again what can you expect from a 7$ set when bosch are costing 2-3x the price.

I have a 17 cx-5 and I use these. Mazda uses a different clip so I just strip the rubber of and replace the old rubber but keep original arm. Works for front and rear. Fits perfectly. I am sure this can be done with other brands too.

Which gen Civic? I have a 2011 and these wipers work fine. No worse than stock wipers.

Interesting. How long have you had them on? Mine is a 2012 and started to chatter/streak after a couple months. I replaced it and it did the same with new pair after a few months of light usage.

My current set is nearly 2 years old now, and I use my wipers very liberally. They actually seem to last longer than the OEM inserts I used to buy. Could it be that you have some gunk or residue on your windshield that doesn't play nice with these wipers?

You typically have to change these out once a year, not bad. They get worse if you have stone chips, etc on your windshield, happens with mine.

I find them perfect for my cars.

Just keep your windows clean (use rubbing alcohol and a microfiber towel) and then apply rain-x and also be sure to clean the wipers well.

2 years later and my 1st pair are still acting as new.

On any civic after 2006, you are better off buying the stock refills from Honda. They are like $10 each, they last a lot longer and I find they do a better job.

PAssenger side: https://torontohondaparts.com/Part.aspx ... 32-SNA-A01

Obviously, that assumes you knew about the availability of refills for these and didn't chuck away your original wipers.
Wife's 2006 civic still has original blades, and I replace the rubbers every 2 years or so, and they work perfectly.

On an old Malibu, the Michelin's worked well. On my 2004 Accord, they were OK, but find the Bosch Snow driver and the Anco Winter Extreme blades work better. I usually get 1 or 2 extra spare pairs when I order stuff from RockAuto, since they are the cheapest.

These work well on some cars, but not as well on others, depending on the shape of the windshield.

The refills have increased a lot in price. They were originally around $16 for a set around the time when I bought my car. Nowadays, a set will run you about $25.

with my experience on these, on my edge the passenger side takes 20" and they are perfectly fine. The drivers side takes 26" and they are terrible. Keeps jumping and making annoying sounds even the new ones.
