    I buy new refills whenever I need them (for the regular blades). I also use winter blades for the snow season. So, I guess you could say I replace them twice a year.

    Actually, both regular refills and winter blades (can't be refilled) last about two years.

    That's pretty much my experience too. They seem to tear at the outside end in my case.

    Every 2 for me. Van is parked inside and only has 19k miles. No need to change too often here.

    I am in south florida- lots of rain, lots of sun and lots of very high temperature. They tend to last about a year for me.
    I try to replace them before the rainy season or as soon as I see some streaking. Don't wait too long- it isn't worth it.
    By the way, I have always replaced mine with the inserts from Honda. I always wondered if I should have changed the
    frame, but the new blade inserts seem to clear fine without replacing the frame.
