And Rain-x wipers worked great on my 2008 Malibu but not on my Equinox. I think wiper performance must be tied to what vehicle it is on so testing this on an 05 Colorado may not work on the Equinox. I thought I would never buy a wiper blade other than Rain-x when I saw how great they were on my Malibu but they are worthless on my Nox.hfdad said:I am currently running a test on my 05 Colorado. I have a Silblade on the drivers side and a Valeo 600 on the passengers side. After 2 months I see no differance between them and I am happy with both. Purchased at Amazon, both about the same price, $10-11.
I agree. When replacements are due, they will be BOSCH.Rick Tinley Park said:I can't imagine Bosch making a bad replacement. Every blade I have bought from them has always out performed OEM. However my Nox is only a few months old so new blades are down th eroad.
possibly from a GM OEM air freshener? ;DDoogr said:I just replaced mine with OEM. Did anyone else notice a musty smell from them? They work excellent but the smell is awful.
It is both of them. They come seperate and were boxed and bagged. Had them a week now and it has disapated a bit.
Exact same thing happened to me regarding the missing adapter, luckily the auto place had some leftovers. I thought Rain-x worked well at first but on the highway they were horrible, have you driven with these on the highway yet?GuardiansBeer said:Rain-X Latitude work fine for me. Been driving with them for about a month. Just replaced OEM after 2 years (rubber was literally ripping away from the wiper).
24" for the Driver side, 17" for the passenger side. I bought both online from Amazon for $15 and $13 respectively. After receiving, the driver side went on fine but the passenger side blade package was missing the P&H arm adapter (I believe this is the correct term). 2nd package from Amazon was also missing the P&H arm. Went to Target and was able to find 17" with the adapter, so all good to go now.

Hope this helps.
I have been told that spraying the front end of the car with Rain-X makes bug removal much easier. I haven't tried it because I didn't know if it would be bad for the paint. Has anyone tried it?darkside said:Barhoc11 have you considered using rain-x windshield water repellant .
I have been using it for years and have never been disappointed .
As for the wiper blades themselves I just have the factory blades and no complaints.
Since I rarely have to use the wipers since the water just rolls right off the glass I don't have the wipers going back and forth across my vision. Also the blades last a lot longer and bugs are easier to remove.
