Best Accord Coupe Windshield Wipers

Does anyone have excellent performing windshield wipers for the Coupe? I tried the Rain-X Latitude but it was worse than the OEM wipers!

I like the Bosch icon all season and they don't look dumb. And last a long time. Worth the price

Just run the stockers and rain-x the windshield. Makes a huge difference.

Sorry but for me OEM was the best. They lasted me about three years until I replaced them. Got them off of amazon, forgot what I paid for them but I know it wasn't more that $15 bucks delivered

If your car is under warranty, go to the dealer and they will replace them for free.

I have always had best results with the OEM Honda (and Mazda for my wife's car) and Rain-X.

Never had to stray from OEM and they last a long time. Each winter, I switch to winter blades.

OEM with a periodic wipe down of the blades with isopropyl alcohol.

I would avoid Rain-X. Its difficult to apply correctly, leaves a film on the glass, and causes wiper chatter that's like an STD for your windshield; once you get it, it will never go away.

About two months ago I got the Bosch ICON blades for replacements of my OEM ones after two years. Even though the originals were still fine, I felt that before winter hit it was a good time to replace. I drove with them for about two weeks before stopping by the dealership and buying OEM again. Not saying they don't do the job but they rattled at higher speeds and made more noise.

I love Rain X, used it for years, don't even have to use wipers in downpours on the highway. It isn't the easiest to apply, sometimes it doesn't dry properly but for best results I apply in the sun.

Have you ever used Bon-ami to clean the windshield? Have had good results. The problem I have is the squeeges at gas stations, too many morons wipe spilled gas with them.

Rain X is great if you drive over 40 mph only and never use the wipers. Years ago I used to use Rain X but then my wipers would start to chatter and it would get progressively worse. I'd apply more Rain X and the chatter would go away for a few weeks only to return. I changed wiper blades and it would still chatter. It chattered till the day I traded in the car and I swore I would never use Rain X again. Streaking is annoying but tolerable, chattering makes you want to slit your wrists. I read online that its the Rain X that's causing this. The chemical composition messes up the rubber in the wiper blade.

Chatter is a pain, I do get it occasionally.

Remember the late Andy Rooney from 60 minutes who had his rant each week at the end of the show? He went a little crazy about how Rain X didn't work he was sued but the case was thrown out.

Meh, you aren't applying and wiping off the dried film correctly/completely. I've never had chatter with rain-x in over 20+ years of usage, NEVER.
