Forgive me if this has been discussed but I wanted to share my results with everyone.
If you're going to purchase wipers, do not buy the Tripledge "Lifetime guaranteed" wipers.
Well, our super ghetto-rific wal-mart only had 1 Tripledge in stock when I got wipers. (Well they had about 5 but the other 4 were used ones people returned) I was very skeptical of them when I bought them but I figured what the hell, why not? Even if they last a few thousand miles I only spent two dollars extra purchasing them. Well, they went out this week, I called to get my replacement wipers and after several phone calls to customer service and cleaning them with baking soda and crap and not sending in my warranty card I just went out and bought some new wipers. It's not worth it, too me at least. I seem to replace wipers as much and I fill the washer resovoir.
AFAIK They are only available at wal mart.
Ok, on to the second Tripledge product I tested out tonight. It's a flexblade that changes with the contour of the window. And it's $12
. I figured i'd try it with the back window since I can't find any wiper that will work with that thing. In Tripledge's defense, it's cold out there so it MIGHT be stiff, so I'm going to try and park in the sun (When we get some in Chicago) and see if that will soften it up, but til then I am still pretty pissed off I spent $12 for a wiper blade. HA HA HA...
I couldn't find the new flexblade on their site. They're probably seeing how many suckers will buy it first before they market it.
Well since Wal-Mart only had 1 Tripledge in stock when I purchased wipers the last time, I bought a Michelin one for the passenger side at the same time and that one outlived the "Lifetime" wiper. It didn't need replacement tonight, but I changed it anyways. So it would have kept on wiping.
