After a few months they have started squealing
Started out well, but after 5 months on the vehicle they have started to squeal (Audi Q7). I have emailed Uniwipers and sent a video of the noise to them. I have cleaned them, made sure the windscreen is clean, and the noise keeps coming back. I have been in touch with Uniwiper and will see what happens. I have not had an issue with the rear wiper which I purchased at the same time.
I researched these before buying, but would not be going out of my way to purchase them for my 4wd when they are due. For the cost of these I would expect a long...er life with them. My wifes car is always washed and kept clean in the garage and does minimal travel. Mine on the other hand is driven every day, sits in the elements and I do not have this problem with my wipers and I dont wash my car half as much as my wifes. The were easy to fit, and delivered quickly, but I just expected a bit more from them for the price. If they continue to squeal on the screen, I will have to replace them as the noise is very annoying to listen to while driving. Uniwiper are sending some new rubbers and windscreen polish which is great, we will see how this works. I am happy with the great response from Uniwipers so I hope this solves my problem and I can update accordingly.
Ok, but could be much better!
Overall the wipers work well as you'd expect new wipers to. The only issue is because the wipers are kept in the packet for however long in the warehouse, they loose the curvature and as such they don't fully curve to the windscreen. Therefore they don't clean the edges properly. I tried folding them with my hands before installing but this didn't help.
The other issue is around installing onto the wiper arms of the front ones. The fit was not very good and I had to really "yank" them in and at one point thought I was going to break something.
I'll come back and update after 4-6 months of use. They are ok for now, but I'll try something else first before I decide to come back for more.
Bought the wipers for my Nissan Murano.
They are obviously not rigid enough as they vibrate wildly at the bottom of the wiper.
Contacted support and they said it was because I had film on the windscreen and I needed to clean it. Did that, still the same issue.
Finally admitted it was a known problem and they would send me a replacement when the "new Rubber" arrived.
Waited a month no replacement. Contacted support and they said they sent the replacement to some address in QLD (i.e. Not my Address)
Finally got the replacement (Not the whole wiper, just the rubber insert) and does the same thing. For all the hassle this was worth, I will just buy Bosch for a few $ more.
good wipers but
these are good wipers but don’t think they are as good as advertised but still leave un removed water on my windscreen but they are better than what i had

We have sent you an email and incase spam got to it, I have enclosed a similar response for you below.
The Tuson does not need to use any special attachments, you can use the attachment that comes pre-installed on the wiper. See video below for instructions on how to attach to your vehicle.
