Bought wipers in november '21 after reading reviews. Was working well, no streaks/noise. However now (march/april '22) wipers are skipping and very noisy. Contacted support given their promise of customer satisfaction but only suggestion was to clean the windshield which I had done already. Was expecting to get at least 12 months out of it so fairly disappointed.
I was given replacement wiper refills after my review was posted. The installation was easy and straightforward, however the performance was still not what it was when I got i...t new in november; the bottom portion of the blade was still skipping albeit better. This makes me believe it could be that the wiper arm has lost tension rather than the rubber losing performance. At least now it is useable and the noise is not as bad, hopefull will last the full 12 months. Videos of Before https://youtube.com/shorts/_V0-kwUWjpQ After https://youtube.com/shorts/OO_RsbrJ4oU
A hassle to fit. When they did, they didn’t last…
Bought these wipers about 7 months ago.
They seemed like generic ones with many adapters rather than ones that are made to fit a specific car model.
They were a hassle to get on and cheapened the look of the car (Mk7 Golf) because they looked clunkier than the originals which are much more streamlined.
They worked OK for a few months but after 7 months of use they’re not much use with lots of skipping and noise. Not a good deal considering the originals lasted a few years…
Foggy and streaky windscreen
Bought front and back wiper for my Sorento 4 weeks ago. Initially the wipers were alright (probably due to under use) but now the wiper is leaving big streak and fog in the windscreen. Received a replacement silicon wiper rubber but the noise its producing was unbearable (had to revert to old one). Contacted the support team but had not heard back from them. I am going back to my original wipers and strongly recommend everyone to stay away from buying it.
Don't rate them
Not very good super streaky have to run them well past the windows being wet to get the smear of the windscreen
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.
Bought for my Hilux. Within 2 months the wiper started streaking. Absolutely smears right at eye level when driving. Avoid.
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.
left a fog on the windscreen
purchased them for my 2017 commodore. delivery was fast, but that's where it all went downhill. First thing was they weren't fully on the windscreen, leaving large gaps. Uni wipers answer to this was to bend them to fit. Hardly a professional product if you need to bend them to fit. Then when I finally got them working, they were leaving a fog all over the windscreen. I drive a lot at night and the last thing I need in the rain is an obstructed view. I informed them of this via email. There answer to that was we will let our production team kno...w. they couldn't care less about the issues I had, and made it quite clear by their responses. I told them I was sending them back for a refund, and they were ok about this, sending me an email telling me they had refunded me. Two days later I hadn't received any indication of the refund so emailed them asking where it is. This email was conveniently ignored so I lodged a dispute with Paypal for a refund and miraculously, within 2 hours they had refunded my paypal. These guys are dodgy, are selling a dodgy product, and will quite happily take your money, then hope you don't complain after they screw you around if you have an issue.
Fit can be better
The front wiper blades don't have enough/un-even pressure to sit against the windscreen. Two pointy ends don't have any contact with the windscreen at all. The rear blade attachment leave a small gap between the housing and the insert, make it wobbly. It has done a good job in removing water tho, but I guess every new blades do the same.
UPDATE 1: Tried to bend the edges of the blades, as suggested by Uniwiper, to make the blade edges touch with the windscreen. It is better now, but there is still a small gap there, not as big as before, seems more acceptable.
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
Worst wipers money can buy..
Got wipers for my 16 Grand Cherokee. Leavers water behind on drivers side. Tried cleaning both glass n wipers but no difference. Wirst wipers i have ever used. Wont recommend.
Purchased wipers during a sale, was advised items would include quick shipping, australian stock. Didnt receive wipers for over a month and when they arrived it was clear they were shipped from china.
The wipers dont make proper contact with the windshield, leaving continous lines of water on the windshield when used.
Enquiries to the compant also fall on deaf ears, expect to receive no response or some cookie cutter message.
Average quality product with no after sales support
drop shipped from China wipers I can live with if they do the job. Ordered a set for my car and my wife's. Both driver side wipers didn't make proper contact with the glass from the get go. Spoke to them via email and said it was due to them being stored straight for too long and bending them a bit would fix it. It didn't. Conveniently at this point, when I asked for the wiper to be replaced or refunded they stopped replying to my emails. Also tried calling the phone number, and received a recorded message saying "send an email". Hard to get th...em to honour their 30 day guarantee when you can't get in touch with them. Overall an average product, same quality as a cheap set from bunnings. Don't waste your time or money, go to supercheap auto, at least you can take them back if there's an issue.
Uniwiper -Don't buy
Don't buy from this bloke unless you want to waste money. Drop ships from China you will wait forever. Lots of people are dissatified. just enter Uniwiper into Ozbargin. Has deleted his Google reviews because of all the negative comments.
