Oregon certainly sees more than its fair share of precipitation – from misting rain to wet and sticky snow in the mountains. Oh the joys of living in the Pacific Northwest! In order to safely drive during falling rain or snow, you need good, high-quality windshield wipers that are changed regularly.
Changing windshield wipers might not seem like such a big deal, but we recommend bringing your Acura vehicle to us and letting our service experts change them for you. As a service department that specializes in Acura vehicles, we use the right style and length that your model requires, which will save you a few trips to the overpriced auto parts store. We can also switch out wiper blades that are good and stuck (which is something that we do not recommend doing yourself).
In addition to your windshield wiper blades, we can check to see if you have enough windshield washer fluid.
We can also give your windshield a good look-over to make sure that there are no pits, chips, or cracks.
If you are wondering how often you should change your windshield wiper blades, it greatly depends on how much you use them and how high of quality they are. Some drivers may need to change their blades once a year, while others might need to do so twice a year. We recommend bringing your Acura vehicle to us once you are no longer enjoying top-notch clarity or when the rubber part starts peeling away. The autumn season is also a good time to request a new set of wiper blades so that you can experience crystal-clear visibility when the snow starts flying.
If you have any questions or are ready to switch out those blades, please contact us and schedule a service appointment.
