Hi jm98.  I've always had good luck with the Motorcraft wipers. And if the wipers on your car are still the factory Lincoln/Motorcraft wipers after 4+ years, your wipers did right by you too. You can find a coupon for Motorcraft wipers on the Lincoln Owners, Ford Owners, Quick Lane and many Dealer websites service coupon pages.

Here is one example on the Ford Quick Lane site: https://www.quicklane.com/current-specials/wiper-blade-coupons.html

That being said, everyone will have their own opinions and you generally won't go wrong with wiper blades from any of the major wiper manufacturers.

But as I stated above, I have used the Motorcraft replacements for many years and always been happy with them.

Hope this information helps. Good luck.

 

EDIT - If you are also due for an oil change and tire rotation, some Lincoln/Ford Quick Lane Service Departments are now offering a coupon for "The Works" oil change and tire rotation special, plus a pair of Motorcraft Premium Wipers, plus a $10 mail in rebate, all for $39.95. So you can get an oil change, tire rotation, vehicle check-up, fluid check/fill and a pair of wiper blades, all for $29.95 after rebate.

I've also had good luck with Motorcraft blades.  I like them enough to put a set on my Nissan.

The OEM blades are very good on our 2017s, a year old + now.

I always have the dealer change them when they do my annual state inspection. I do the same thing for the cabin filter.

Have a 2018 MKZ and looking to replace wiper blades.  Measured passenger side, spot on 20".   Driver side is right on 23". Odd size.  I can find the 20 " blades all day long but can't find a 23".  Anyone else have this problem?  Suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi MKZ4. I use the Motorcraft replacement blades. You can find a coupon on the Ford Owners website. $19.99 for a pair.

 

Good luck.

I tried the Michelin guardian Hybrid Wipers from Costco but they didn't have a connector that would fit the Lincoln MKZ arm.  I'll look for that coupon.

 

Thanks,

I've always liked Trico Neoforms. My car isn't garaged so my wipers are constantly in the sun but the Neoforms hold up pretty well. They never streak until they're worn out to the point of needing replaced anyway. I know you're supposed to change out your wiper blades about twice a year, but I''ve had the Neoforms last a year or longer.

Yes Like you've mentioned, a garaged vehicle definitely extends wiper blade life. What I have been using for many years and is effective for much much longer wiper blade life (I mean years longer) is to treat windshield with rain-x liquid. The chemical combination on the rubber combined with less dirt and debris on windshield makes for safer driving as well.And one bottle will last you a long time.

A word about use Rain-X:  Avoid applying it to the windshield in the area in front of the sensor if equipped with rain-sensing wipers, as it can affect operation.
