Question Wiper Blades for 2014 Azera?

I have liked the Bosch wiper blades on my Mustang so when it came time to replace the Azera blades I picked up a Bosch pair but they do not sit flush like the OEM. There is a pretty big bump on top of the blade and a gap below it. What wiper blades do you guys recommend? Also wondering what the OEM blades might be and how much they cost on average. Thanks so much!

i would get the oem ones from ebay. They are around $12. I had Bosch once but you have to pay extra to get the super flush blades. Just get the oem ones for the Limited models like this one Passengers Right Side Windshield Wiper Blade OEM For Hyundai 983603V000 | eBay

I recently bought the Rain-X Latitude from a local store because it's supposed to have built-in water repellent capabilities, but my driver's side blade seems to leave a lot of smears on the glass. Now, when I was installing that blade, I was holding onto the actual blade as I was trying to snap the assembly onto the J-hook so I might have wrecked the repellent stuff. I'm going to buy another driver's side and see if things improve.

btw, cost for both blades was $40.

I just installed Trico traditional blades from Advance Auto. Roughly $20 for the pair and I've had good experience with that brand.

I can't speak for your model but due to access to product testing for several years I've gotten to try several sets of blades on my '07 Accent which has one heck of a front windshield. Anco blades were horrible. AC-Delco were usable but wore out in a couple months. I returned the Rain-X blades in the rain very happy that I'd made them keep the used blades when they wanted to toss them away. I've tried a cheaper brand of Bosch blades when they were on sale but I keep going back to the Icon model from Bosch. With all the rain and fog we get down here in Florida not to mention the salt spray at the beaches I get usually a year or two out of each set.

rain-x lattitudes are on sale at pep boys, plus a 12$ rebate by mail if you buy a pair. i just bought a pair. i have never used the latitudes on untreated glass, so i dont know about the wiping, but i think they are a very good wiper on treated(rain-x). i have treated the cars windshields(actually, ALL the glass, including the mirrors) for so long i cant remember when i started. i also really like the piaa blades, and the piaa have changeable inserts, rain-x does not(i asked them)

From my own experience I would always go with OEM. They will guarantee you great performance and best fit. No gaps and no misses spots. Wipe them down with windex every time you wash your car and they will last for a very long time. And yes, get them from eBay.

So i went on and purchased THESE trico flex wipers to test them. They do have the hook connector like on the side but it helps making it "flusher" to the glass. Also it doesn't affect the pattern. It wipes perfectly and are super quiet. So far its feeling real good. And look much better than the normal ones. Plus they are rechargeable so for net time you only need to get the replacement rubber. 26" and 18" are perfect fit.

I second that. The OEM ones are better looking then the after market ones and they are cheaper to purchase also.
