Why you shouldn’t skimp on windshield wipers.
Windshield wipers are an often overlooked, but crucial part of your vehicle. They are essential for safe driving and should always be providing you with a clear view of the road, not a smudged, foggy view. Even the best wipers deteriorate and need to be changed, but spending a little more up front to invest in good ones, will save you money in the long run.
If you’ve ever been down the windshield wiper aisle in an auto part store, you’ve probably seen way too many and don’t know how to choose what’s right for you. First things first, before you even get in the store, review your car manual to find the right size. This will at least help some of the anxiety since it will narrow down your options. Check out this buyers guide- “Best Windshield Wipers 2018” for a breakdown of pros and cons of different brands.
Wipers will probably have to be changed every six months to a year, but it is not something you can put a timeline on. If it isn’t keeping your windshield clear, get a new pair.
