Has anybody found the correct size winter wiper blades available for
sale yet? Just thought I'd ask before I checked the manual (or physically
measured them) and paid a visit to my local NAPA store. I've also
changed out my blades for summer and winter on each of my vehicles.
Did check Wal-Mart the other day and, of course, the Compass is too
new to be in the wiper book. Go figure......

For what it's worth, I usually change wipers for winter too, but have not done so on my Jeep yet.

After driving around in VERY cold temps, snow and all that, I don't plan to change them either. So far, the wipers have been excellent!

Here’s a scoop for you.
After going to the C.Tire, buying and installing a pair or their top of the line "winter blades" I happened to stop in at a VW dealership with my son who was picking up a set of winter mats and wiper blades for his Jetta.
The service manager told him that the blades today are “all season” and they don’t sell winter blades anymore. One-piece affair, no more rubber squiggy blade held in metal. So far as he knew all new cars come with these blades today.
Go know . . . the new “winter blades” I installed do not look like the old rubber covered things I used to use, but are one piece things like the ones my car came with. Oh well, live and learn.

i2canoe, you sure dug up an old thread 8)

I just replaced my wiper blades recently. I went with the new curved style that have no springs, etc. So far they're working well but we haven't got too much into winter yet (that means I haven't gone snowmobiling yet but hopefully soon).

You would notice. Eh? Everything is relative, and what goes around comes around, so to speak, just like winter and winter related topics.
