Honestly, when was the last time you thought about your wiper blades? Last month? Last year? If it is pouring down rain and they are not performing properly, you WILL think about them. Being caught in a storm when degraded wiper blades is a true hazard. Faulty wiper blades are the cause of many accidents.
On average, nearly half of all vehicles on the road are due to have the wiper blades changed. Consider going with the change of seasons, replacing the blades with at the beginning of winter and again for summer—two seasons that prove particularly challenging for wipers.
To get the most from your existing wipers, inspect them periodically. Lift each wiper arm off the glass and run your finger along its rubber edge. If the rubber is rigid or chipped, or produces non stop streaking, you need new wipers.
When the time comes for new blades, remember to replace them in pairs. If one is worn out, its mate can’t be far behind.
