Not much of a mod, but at least it's exterior...
I replaced all three of the wipers on my 2010 Escape this week. I had the original OEM Valeo blades on for six years, but they had started to become hella streaky, despite looking more or less fine.
Looked at the various sites around the Interwebs and became confused about the multitude of choices on offer (and shocked by the "Change your wiper blades every six months" advice. Seriously? I guess once in six years is not enough, but come on...)
Nehoo, went down to the Costco and bought two 20" Michelin Stealth wiper blades and ordered the Michelin 9512 Rear Windshield Wiper Blade on Amazon.
Could. Not. Be. Happier. What a difference. I'm still not convinced that every six months is the right interval, but I am loving the new blades to be sure.
