    A while back I posted an inquiry about who makes a quiet wiper blade.
    On both my PT and my wife's Alero, the blades made a terrible noise
    when going in one suggestion. Many reply suggestions were posted, from
    buying $25 each replacement blades to bending the wiper arms.
    One day I heard an ad on the radio for Triple Edge wiper blades
    available at Walmart. They aren't made of rubber, they're made of
    silicone and are more flexible. I figured what the hell, give 'em a
    Well, they've been on both cars for over a month, and (knock on wood)
    still extremely quiet.
    Oh, they have a lifetime guarantee. Once you register them, anytime you
    need a replacement, just call them, they will send you a new one for a
    small shipping charge.

    I use Rain-X regularly on my windshield, so I seldom have to use my
    wipers. Thus I don't care if the free blades the dealership's service
    center installs for me squeak or not.

    I just tried a pair of the new one piece Bosh wipers for my PT; what
    junk!!!! One chatters and the other came with a defect that looks just like
    a worn wiper streak. Good job Bosh.

    I totally agree. I was looking for wiper blades nd had the choice
    between the wal-mart $2.00 specials, and the Bosch blades that were
    close to $15.00 apiece. And I thought to myself "Y'know, I *really*
    should stop being so damned cheap."

    Never have I regretted such a decision. From day one, the Bosches
    streaked like hell. The OLD blades (which were of the aforementioned
    wal-mart specials) actually performed better in their old state than the
    brand new Bosches I had replaced them with!

    Same here. I went back to replacement and they work better than any others I
