so I went to use my wipers today and they were doing a poor job so after I stopped to inspect them I found both wiper blades to literally be coming apart, actually tearing into pieces! I live in Scottsdale, Az and it is hot of course but I have never seen blades come apart this way, after 2 1/2 years. I feel lucky that they didn't scratch the windshield.

Anyone have a problem like this?

I replaced them with Rainx as I have heard they're very good quality wiper blades.

Comments?

I just replaced my wiper blades the other day. I bought my Palisade pre-owned so I can't say for certain when the last time they were changed. The only reason I did it was because I started seeing tears in the rubber blade itself and with the rainy season in FL upon us I couldn't take a chance it would completely rip or come apart when I needed them most.
I bought the Bosch Icon ones from Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VBPKKFM

Wiper blades should be replaced annually. The Arizona sun and sand grit will break down rubber so maybe look at a silicone blade.
Been using the same pair for over a year now. Just have to clean the blades every once and a while with some glass cleaner and then recoat with silicon spray. They're like new after that.

Thanks for all the responses I'll have to try the silicone spray thing, hadn't heard of that. Google/Utube had something about using WD40 but then I read another thing that said never use WD40.

WD40 makes a silicone spray. I wouldn't use regular WD40 as the oil will attract dust and probably will reduce the life of the blades.

In Canada, my wipers didn't last longer than 1 year, before doing this.
Every 6 months, I started swapping, using winter wipers and later switching back to the all season.
I have been doing this for 4 years now and they are keeping up with a clean windshield.

If you got 2.5 years out of them, you did great! I have 4 months and about 6k miles on mine, and the wipers are already very streaky and need replacing. That's terrible given we typically go 1 to 2 years on our other cars. (Yes, I tried to clean them with alchohol--no better.)

If you get 6-12 months you’re doing well. 2 1/2 years is a ridiculous amount of time to keep a disposable part.
