How Frequently Should You Change Wiper Blades?

How Frequently Should You Change Wiper Blades-

Ever wonder how often the wiper blades on your wind-shield should be changed? Although some wiper blade manufacturers recommend 6 months to one year, the truth is that it all depends on the conditions your car faces.

If you spend the majority of your time on the Monterey Peninsula, where it’s cooler throughout the year and there’s not a lot of rain, your wind-shield wiper blades could last up to two years. If, however, you use your wiper blades frequently, drive and park in areas with high temperatures, or park your vehicle outside of the protection of a garage, your wiper blades may need to be replaced sooner.

Also, do you have wiper blades attached to the front and to the rear of your vehicle? Many may consider replacing the front wind-shield wiper blades more frequently than the back since they are used more often. However, the back window wiper blades may get more direct sun and heat, depending on where you park your car on a daily basis. If you have front and rear wiper blades on your vehicle, consider replacing them at the same time.

The best way to figure out if you need to change your wiper blades, is to test them. If your visibility is affected, you don’t want to risk having worn out blades. When your wiper blades no longer make proper contact with the wind-shield surfaces of your vehicle — either front or back — they can begin to squeak, chatter, skip, smear or streak. Worn out wiper blades reduce driving visibility, and that can be inconvenient at best, or dangerous at worst.

When you come to Robert’s Collision & Repair for scheduled maintenance, we check your wiper blades to see if they are in good working order. Our priority is to keep you safe while out on the road, and though wiper blades are a low cost feature on your vehicle, they could be a lifesaver. Be smart and change your wiper blades before your driving visibility deteriorates.

Benefits of a quality car wax

Quality car wax

If you ask any auto detailers they will stress on to you the importance of protecting your vehicle’s coat of paint with a quality car wax. The idea of waxing is your want to provide a sacrificial layer over your  car to protect the quality of paint. In this blog Dignity Repairs will tell you why you want to protect your car with a quality wax. That way this is sure to stay top of mind for Dignity Drivers.

  1. Increase the life span of your vehicle’s coat of paint- Over time Oxidation occurs which breaks down the quality of your car’s paint. Which can make the exterior of the vehicle look very bad.
  2. Makes the paint look good which makes you look good– The Wax adds a quality shine to your vehicle and increases the life span of the paint.
  3. Preserves resale value– It doesn’t matter if you have a car that runs great. A bad paint job is going to give a potential buyer room to negotiate the price down with you.
  4. Maintaining a wax coating makes washing easier – Wax helps prevent dirt and other filth from bonding with the vehicle. Which makes washing much easier.
  5. Fun Factor – Driving & being in a shiny car is fun. It makes you feel good and it makes you feel cool.

To conclude use a quality wax. If you need a recommendation feel free to stop by to our location on Dundas Street in Toronto Ontario. That way we can refer you to a quality wax. Thank you for reading the Dignity Repairs blog today. Be sure to connect with Dignity Repairs below on Social media.
