Yup. I think it's a combination of the fast sweep and the actual wipe pattern. Very annoying. In another thread, I ranted about the wiper stalk compared to my '92 Civic, and I'd have to say the wipers themselves were much better on that car too. That's progress for ya.Whatchamacallit said:Anyone else get a "splash-back" of water on the windshield when you use the single swipe feature?
I am guessing it has more to do with the speed at which it swipes (too fast) rather than the quality of the wiper blades.

I replace my wipers every year because they get trashed in the winter. So, I go with the somewhat cheap brand-name ones. Skip the really cheap no-name ones, they don't even make it through a year.netoperek said:Anyone out there knows any good wiper blades for the TSX?
Single swipe or constant swiping, the left wiper blade throws water over the the other side of the window and it's very annoying for the person in the passenger seat.Joker said:^^^ Agrees.. Hit your your local Acura parts guy, and slap them on yourself :thumbsup:
Nice resurrect, Bob!bob shiftright said:OK, so now for the review!
The 16" Bosch Micro-Edge Excel was $9.95 at Pep Boys, the 26" ("Oh, for a Maxima?") 26" Bosch Micro-Edge $18.95 from the local furrin' car parts place/ex-Peugeot dealer. Both blades seem marginally longer than the Honda blades. The right (passenger) blade seems to clear the side of the windshield gasket only by about 1-2mm.
So far so good, on one brief highway drive under a light drizzle the passenger's wiper wasn't skipping like the Honda blade! :thumbsup:
Do you know if they have blades that you can just put on as replacement for the OEM's, without changing the assembly?CL9 K24a said:PIAA makes some very good wiper replacement blades and assembly in all sorts of applications for all types of lengths. A true upgrade from OEM blades.
