Lifts up on return sweep in the middle leaving a wide band of wet windshield
on November 10, 2017
Horrible... just put these on two cars (both use the 26" for the driver's side [09 Toyota Sienna, 13 Toyota Camry]). Works great on the up-sweep, but horrible on the return sweep. On both cars, right in the middle of the blade (so right in the middle of your field-of-view), it only squeegees clean on the up-sweep... on the return, it leaves a gap about 2" wide of water...
I had the Bosch ICON before, and they were great. I thought I did an Amazon subscription for those 7 months ago, but apparently not... so, I'll be cancelling that subscription now. With winter about to start, I foresee replacing these shortly.
So the first storm I had to drive in with these was horrible. This photo doesn't show just how hard it was to see through the MIDDLE of the windshield while trying to drive... I had to keep running the washer fluid to get that patch wet otherwise salty road spray was drying an opaque grey as it evaporated.
I guess I got what I paid for with these... true waste of money with this model.
I just setup a new subscription for the ICONs I liked before--just hope I can make it through the next 5-weeks waiting for them...
One last update on these: picture from 29/JAN... yes, it was a cold morning, but you can see in the animated GIF how these just didn't work in the middle... and that was just washer-fluid to get the water spots off... there are just horrible... Got my ICONs, put them on both cars the day before a snow and ice-storm: not a problem--perfect sweep every time... even at 15ºF...
