Yea it's because of their design. I haven't seen any wipers like those in the stores.

EDIT: I just checked out gm-parts-direct.com and they have the wipers listed at a dealer price of $24, but if you order it online they cost $18. I think that dealership is messing with ya.

I agree. My dealer only charged me a little over $20 each.

Rubber doesn't come off neatly to allow a "refill" to be used, and the entire blade is what you're buying. Like GTPGuy82 says, it's a funky design -- it's an even funkier attachment to the arm.

What is the deal with these blades anyways? They look like they can be flipped over and reused or is that just for looks/wind deflection?

it's something for aerodynamics. I asked the salesman at the dealership. They can't be flipped over.

Motomaster makes blades such as ours. But they are only sold at Canadian Tire. I personally like them there designed is much better than traditional blades.

I went on line and ordered the wiper blades from a Pontiac dealer in California. Including shipping, it cost $31 for both blades. I love the internet! I cant wait till my local dealer calls to tell me that the $80 set is in. Looks like I'll need to find another dealer for any warranty work that might show up.

Thanks for all of the comments and suggestions.

Ouch! That's a good one!

Dealerships need a reality check from time to time anyway.

The G6 blades look somewhat like the RainX Latitude wiper blades also.

I got a driver's side one (arm and blade) from NAPA and it was less than $20. They were out of the passenger side ones at the time, but the driver's side one was the one I really needed.
