I have to agree about the Rain-X. They were no improvement over the originals.

I've used Bosch, rain-x, Goodyear, Valeo and OEM in my other car and there hasn't been any noticeable difference between the different brands (they were all the one piece type). In my RDX I used the OEM inserts and they worked wonderfully. My MDX is only six months old and it seems like they need to be replaced. I'll e using OEM inserts and see how they do

You would be amazed at how much difference the beam/silicone blades make.

It is obvious that you live in cold country. Down South wiper blades have to be replaced normally yearly. Really good ones will last two years.

I live on SF peninsula. It never gets too hot and too cold here. best place for a car. i once saw a picture from underneath of the a 3 yr MDX. It was full of rust and dirt. My 6 yr MDX still looks like a princess underneath. It is very reasonable for a local car to have a higher price tag.

I get 2 - 4 years out of wiper blades. Basically when I trade a car in they have the original blades, still working fine. I am a habitual user of Rain-X ... the liquid, not the blades. Even in a heavy rain, once I hit 30MPH the wipers are shut off.

I agree on the Rain-X. I use it on all windows on my cars and boat. It is really useful on the side panels on the boat where I do not have wipers. I would also use the silicone beam type blades on the boat if I could find any that were big enough and would fit. The boat sits in its slip 12 months of the year and that heat is hard on the wipers or any other rubber.

Also great on glass shower doors

That's odd. Several postings before mine weren't shown at the time I posted. Oh well!

Odd, but it does happen here occasionally.
