    About to enter my 8th year of Nissan LEAF ownership, and so far just a tire rotation and 12V lead acid battery has been my only maintenance costs, except for ... windshield wipers.

    Does any of the readers have recommendations on good quality long life wipers?  It's the only thing I purchase on a regular basis, every two years or so, but having a clean view in Vancouver's rain is a very desirable feature.

    Where to buy?  What?

    You have been spoiled by the low maintenance cost of your Leaf.  Buying wipers every two years or so is normal on all ICE cars also. I have been using the Nissan wipers and have not found replacement wipers or blades that will fit them. A strategy by Nissan to maintain some vehicle maintenance market, perhaps.
