As I was driving around in the rain all day, I was daydreaming again about the Hummer EV and I got to thinking about the 3 windshield wipers up front. Surely they are more of a standard size (like maybe the size of a typical rear window wiper). But, I have never really had much luck with finding those when it was time for a replacement. And with the lower volume of the Hummer, I doubt that all the manufacturers will rush to make their multiple levels of wipers for an odd size low volume vehicle... Just wondering what other's thoughts are and crap now we will have to buy a 3rd wiper blade... It will probably be about $150 for new blades... They have gotten so expensive.

The wiper blades will be standard size, the local auto store will have them... Good wiper blades are expensive though... Haha!

What size do you think those blades are? I went out the the garage and measured the windshield on my truck, and corrected for pitch, I think the Hummer wiper blades will be 16"? Costco Price, but minimum order is 2, I wonder if that means pairs only? have to buy 4 to get 3, makes me think back to when I was a kid and my parents were watching 60 Minutes, and Andy Rooney went on a rant about hot dog bun packaging verses hot dog packaging. Never a quantity match.
