went today to replace the wipers on my 12k miles 08 'bu at the dealership...:(
they do not have them in stock and are backordered. they are priced at $33.54 each..:eek: seems they are not offered at auto stores since i can't find any here...:confused: just FYI. thanks.

If you can find one that fits right. there are about 7-8 (can't remember the exact #) of different sizes (I used to work for a parts store on the weekends lol)

But if you take the time and try and find one that fits. keep the packaging for next time.

I had to do this on my moms rav 4. dealer wants $49 for the rear wiper or $5 for a pir of refills and i cut them to fit

I know this isn't exactly the most cost-efficient option.. but perhaps consider getting Rain-X wiper blades? I switched them on my last car when they went and they were awesome!

Just a thought :p

I may be incorrect, but I believe the wiper blades are valeo's. Even so, if you go to tirerack.com they are having a buy 1 get 1 free sale right now(or so the magazine I had said) on the Valeo's. I believe a blade is like $18. Not bad. I had them on my Mazda as well as my wifes old Alero.

About $30 each there. They dont list wipers for the 2009, though I assume the 2008 would work the same. Perhaps there's a minor difference, but I am guessing their site just doesnt have 2009 loaded.

You can still just get a refil for the Valeo wiper for a lot less.

Well, yeah the Malibu Classic. Was there a 2008 Malibu Classic LTZ though? I selected 2008 Malibu LTZ and found wipers. 2009 Malibu LTZ I didn't.

I could've sworn the MC only came in LS/LT, so I would hope choosing the LTZ wouold default to the modern body style for 2008.

Yeah I actually went to the site and couldn't find for the '09. I did for the '08, but they only list the Valeo 'OE which are the $30 ones. The others I believe are under $20. Those are the ones I got for our cars a couple years ago.

Otherwise I know a lot of people like the bosch Icons.
