Mine are on 8K and still work fine.
I think a lot depends on what sort of windscreen wash you use also, seems the Tesco cheap stuff is kind to the blades.

Fitted the Bosch wipers and they work smoothly and silently, definitely an improvement and that's before I clean the screen as suggested.
I've used Bosch wipers for over twenty years and only once in that time bought cheap ones and as I said before - never again.

Got a 700 mile Polo today as a courtesy car while Tiguan is in for service and its wipers are horrendously noisy across the screen, even in heavy rain.

You take a Tiguan in and they give you a Polo!
Drive it like you stole it!!

It was OK actually - a DSG one with 95PS petrol engine - went very nicely on 15 mile journey each way. In the past they've given me an Up!. I don't mind small cars but I was surprised how awful the Up! was.

Daughter's Ateca was serviced the other day and she was given a Citroen C3. She went back at 4PM as agreed and had to wait 30 mins with her impatient little daughter as car wasn't ready. They said they'd washed and vac'd it but the extent of that was throwing some water at the wheels.

I get the same from my stealer in Cambridge.
They lend me a Mii FR which is remarkably fun to drive but every time I have to call them to see if my car is ready, usually half an hour before they close, to be told it was ready at noon! Do they not know how to use a phone?
It's always flippin rush hour also so a mare traffic wise.
The last but one time it actually went it to be cleaned correctly as they didn't do it prior to pickup (brand new on March 1st 2019) and had glue on the panels...I collected it 7 hours later to find they hadn't even touched it let alone moved it from where I left it!
Suffice to say choice words were indeed had and lots of managers were running about apologising...how hard can it be to do the 1 thing it went in for?
