They're covered under the free maintenance, unless its not applicable in Canadaland?

No it is not part of maintenance.

Curve001. I bought a pair of full Michelin wiper blades from Costco for my 09 for $12 each. Yes the dealer offered to install them for $168. it was $120 if you buy them or $140 + labour + tax if they install them. Go figure.

Its technically not part of the maintenance program, but in practice it is.

Atleast in my experience and of others.

You have to complain about streaking.

That had been my experience as well. In fact, one local dealership's service department always replaced them as a matter of course.

NVM. Tried toe $12 Costco Michelline again and it worked ! Just need to use the right attachment piece. Thanks jwanes! Saved myself $120 bucks. Not so much the money but also the fact that $168 for a pair of ordinary wipers ? UNless you get cash to burn, this forum serves to remind us the importance of sharing ideas and knowledge to benefit all of us the owners. I updated my Nav map for $68 instedad of few hundreds to the dealers.

Odd, both dealers I go to have mentioned they are part of routine maintence. The only limitation is they will only replace every 6 months and not sooner.
