How Often Should I Replace My Windshield Wipers?
Picture this: It's an out of the blue flash flood warning and you're stuck right in the middle of it. You switch on your wipers and they're hanging on for dear life. All of a sudden the thought comes to mind...when was the last time you replaced these wipers? Uh-oh...it's been a while.
Welcome back to the DipStx blog, readers! Thanks for stopping by and checking in to see what we're up to. We’re back answering our customer’s questions in today’s blog post here at the DipStx Mobile headquarters!
Q: Today’s hot topic and question of the day is “How often should I change my wipe blades?” We know they’re small but they sure are mighty when it comes to visibility and functionality of the windshield of your vehicle.
A: You’ll typically want to have your windshield wipers replaced around once a year, depending on a few key factors. Some of those factors would be whether or not you use them frequently. Also, is your car kept in a garage or is it parked outside with the elements? What type of wipers are currently installed? Are they built to last or are they a cheaper option that doesn’t stand up to many weather-related elements and tends to require frequent replacements? If any of these factors sound familiar to you and your vehicle, you may be looking at replacing your wiper 2-3 times per year. Again, each car varies, but no matter what the better TLC you put towards your trusty wheels that keep you rolling, the better it’ll serve you!
