Really? I find the washers on my Elantra very effective at all speeds. Did you try aiming the nozzles with the tip of a pen or a nail? They are adjustable on many cars.
Because your current wiper blades are fairly new, I wouldn't throw away money on replacements until (1) cleaning the old blades and the windshield with rubbing alcohol, and (2) applying some Rain-X to the glass. Rain-X is especially helpful at high speeds, where the Elantra's long wipers might skip a bit.
As most know, the wipers that come standard with this car Blow! I have been trying for months to find the proper wipers but no one except Hyundai offers a 14`except in the rear wiper forms and I don`t wat to pay $25 a wiper from Hyundai for the same garbage blades.
With the stock blades, I have to use the wiper spray at least 7 times to get a 3 quarters of the drivers side window clean and at high speeds the spray barely even touches the window so it takes many more sprays.
Can the sprays be changes from the mist to a stream?
I can`t even get a straight answer as to what sizes are accurate. When I measure them I get 13. 5 and 27.5. Should I go up to 14 and 28?
Does anyone recommend a certain manufacturer of wiper blades?
If I understand your post correctly... i'm having the same trouble as you are. At high speeds (80KM/h ++ ) my fluid hits the very bottom of my windsheild and i only get mist up at eye level and I end up wasting alot of fluid because of this.
other than that. the wipers work great if its raining out....
|I was in the local Dollar Store today, found a 28 inch winter wiper blade, (bought 2 of them for a dollar each), I'm all set for a couple of years, now to find the 14 inch ones.|
|Dollar store wiper blades? No thanks! I prefer to "get what I pay for" and be able to have the safety feature of VISIBILITY.|
+1. I have notices the same. I think I will check today and see if the nozzles are adjustable to spray higher.
