    Hey, everyone! We are loving our 2017 Prius 2. We didn't plan on buying a hybrid but when my wife gave her 08 Corolla to our daughter she spotted it at the dealer and fell in love with it.

    Just went over 16,000 miles..we just put over 5,000 on her as we drove to/from Maine from Colorado to celebrate Dad's 85th birthday. NO issues except with the driver's windshield wiper. I noticed the old one (factory) wasn't working so great so replaced with Rain-X. The Rain-X didn't fit the same as the OEM's and when we were in a bad rainstorm in Ohio it came off....thankfully it didn't scratch the windshield and I had saved the ole OEM's under the drivers' seat so just put that back on.

    Do folks here just replace the blades on the OEM wipers or buy whole new wipers?

    congrats and welcome!

    i replace the whole blade, but you have to get the correct model and clip it on correctly. never heard of one coming off, maybe defective?

    all the best!(y)
