Dude you have one sensitive foot !!!!
Can report even with rain-x I still get the heavy smear on the back stroke. Most pronounced on the driver's side. I'll try aftermarket blades. I think something is up if everyone is having the same problem.
I do a lot of highway driving and it is not safe in heavy rain. Can't see anything through the smear.
Mullinax replaced mine with new wipers over the holidays when mine was in for service and I mentioned to Steve that it still had the smear even with the new ones. Don't know that he reported it into Ford though.
Get used to the idea of making the trip. Considering the amount of specialized equip needed now days to work on a vehicle, doing so at home is becoming a thing of the past.I haven't been back to the dealer yet. I have a few outstanding recall notices and a lane centering issue that I need to get in for. I'll ask the dealer about wipers when I go in. I almost hate buying a new car. I have been working on my own cars for 25 years and hate having to wait on a dealership to do anything for me.
What matters most ? One's ability to see in bad weather conditions or, going cheap on the wiper blades ? The majority here are driving a $50 +k vehicle. Pop with the coin for top notch blades already ! Your loved ones lives are riding on it !Michelin Ensurance XT silicone beam are supposed to be very good. They are expensive.
So for all of the folks who have gone to after market wiper blades, what brand have you gone to ? In other word what is the wiper of choice ?
I haven't had my new ST for 2 full weeks yet, but I have had some rain storms that show some flaws in the front wipers. It's probably just less than great wiper blades, but they have left streaks and have not flopped over to pull water from the windshield at times causing a poor wipe and some noise.
I guess it's not a deal breaker, but still surprising that I might need to replace wiper blades at less than 3 weeks of ownership.
Have any of the rest of you noticed less than stellar results with your wiper blades?
