When should I change my car's wiper blades?

Windshield Wiper Blades

Windshield wiper blades are made of rubber and easily deteriorate due to exposure to sun, extreme weather, and pollution. Manufacturers recommend replacing the blades on your new car every few years as a regular part of car maintenance.

Windshield wiper blades are inexpensive and provide a key line of defense when it comes to your safety on the road. Top off your windshield wiper fluid reservoir often (especially in foul weather months).

*If you live in cold-weather climates, make sure your wiper fluid has anti-freeze in it during the winter months to prevent it from freezing to your windshield.
