The wipers that were on the Taurus when I bought it were starting to leave streaks. $50 later at the auto parts store they are replaced.
The brand is Trico and they are a one piece silicon wiper with a shield over the pivot point. Nice lady at O'Reilly Auto Parts upsold me. She and her husband have them on both of their vehicles. We salesmen are such pushovers.
Seems I wasn't their only customer.
I do find the steering wheel a bit odd.
Time will tell if the wiper blades were a good choice.
Used my siphon hose to drain the windshield washer reservoir. Replaced the fluid with some extreme temperature Rain X product and redid the windshield with Rain X. The product takes some elbow grease buffing to get a smooth application. I find it worth the cost and effort. As always, YMMV
Yeah, I'm about five weeks late getting all this done. Sue me.
