I have used the triple-edge, rain-x, and the dual blade replacements.

I loved the triple-edge.  Can't find them anymore. :cry: Highly recommend them.  I did have the dry issue when misting.  I thought that was a small price to pay for the improved performance in other weather.

I love rain-x.  Have several bottles of the stuff.  Coating the back glass helps alot with getting the rain and grime to flow off.  Helps keep it clean too.  As for the windshield: buy the rain-x washer fluid.  I never need to apply the rain-x to the windshield! Shocked The washer fluid does it for me.  Watch for the sales at Murrys!  you can get it at the same price as regular washer fluid.

Double bladed wipers are good.  They work well at low speeds, < 45mph, BUT they tend to raise off the windshield at high speed.  I had them for about 3 months.  Then the uncleared spots got to me and I through them away.  Don't recommend them.  I think they work fine for Jeeps and truck with the very verticle windshields because the wind is pushing down on them.

Finnally, I had one size on my '01.  Don't remember which.  I think the smaller size as I had the wipers getting tangled right after I bought.  They may have adjusted the blades for alignment though.

Hi all...

I have had my aztek for about 7 months, about a week ago my windshield wipers started messing up badly.  They will go up and not come back down unless you push them down.  I have had them looked at by a couple of people and they can't find anything wrong with them does anyone here have any Ideas?  I live in Oklahoma and it rains or snows all the time..

Sometimes the wiper arms come loose from the wiper motor/transmission.  Pop the hood and give a good tug on the motor.
Or it might be time for a new wiper motor

Windshield Wipers are an issue with me... WHY do you pay THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of dollers for an auto, and they can't toss in a few sets of extra wiper blades? Really, just put them in with the spare tire or something. *Grrrrr Angry*

My fellow Canucks can attest - Reflex blades from Canadian Tire and Rain-X washer fluid (the best stuff ever invented!) will keep guarantee a clean windshield. When people get into my Tek it's the first thing they comment one (which may mean I need to do some more work on the interior Wink

I love the Rain-X All-Season wiper fluid, it's all I use.  As for the Reflex wiper blades, I personally do not like them.  I prefer the Rain-X Latitude wiper blades from Wal-Mart.  Rain-X Washer Fluid + Rain-X Wiper Blades = Extremely clean windshield! Smiley
