Does not seem to matter passenger or driver side. I use a 22" on the driver side and a 21" the passenger side as recommended. I live in southern ontario and our weather is harsh. My parents have a 2010 impala and do not have the same problems I do. I drive 75-100km (40-50miles) per day for work, It just seems that this car is a lemon and one more thing to make me not buy another one. My car currently has 112000 kms on it.

    I have tried multiple brands. from $35/wiper winter rainx to generic store brands. nothing seems to work. my 2001 impala I changed the wipers in the spring and fall only. not because I had to but I drive a ton and they always seem to go bad when its terrible weather

    Same with my Blazer! I finally just bought a couple pair of cheap blades and they seem to do just as good and last as long as the high dollar ones. Keep a spare pair! I've tried them all. Cleaned the windshield and blades, nothing works! Why waste money on a name? Can't stand noisey wipers!!

    I knew a guy with same car and same problem ,
    A lady I knew just kept wiping the rubber part with a rag
    And that use to work , maybe there's to much pressure in the arms or not
    Enough , u could bend the arms a little .
