Windshield Wipers

Windshield wipers are easily the most forgotten moving part on your vehicle… until you need them. Unfortunately many drivers, for whatever reason, try to get longer life from their windshield wiper blades. Driving in the rain, snow, or slushy weather can be dangerous enough without trying to see through a blurred or smeared windshield.

You owe it to yourself, your family, and the other drivers on the road, to have wiper blades that keep your visibility at the optimum level for the conditions.

When should you change your wiper blades?

Some people like to change their wiper blades on a set schedule, like every six months for example, Some people choose to change them when the blades start to loose their effectiveness. Many factors determine how frequently you need to change your wiper blades. Such as, how often do you use them? Do you live in an area that gets lots of rain or snow? Are your wiper blades exposed to extreme hot or cold temperatures?

What does your Paragon Motors technician look for when inspecting your wiper blades?

  • Condition of the wiper blade frame at the joints or connection points
  • Any signs of corrosion from washer fluid or Winter salt
  • All signs of damage to squeegee such as cracks, tears, or missing pieces
  • Test the flexibility of squeegee rubber to ensure it has proper movement
  • Look for rounded edges on squeegee rubber as signs of excessive wear
  • Check to see wiper is properly attached

If you haven’t changed your wiper blades in the last 6 – 12 months they need to be checked. If your wiper blades smear rather than clean your windshield, it’s time to replace them. If your wiper blades skip and miss spots, then they need to be replaced.

Friendliest Garage around!

I went in to this garage with a Groupon to get an oil change. When I left they gave me three pages of things that needed to be done to the car starting with the first page and the most serious items. That gave me a chance to budget, and I would phone in and I'd say I want page-one done on Monday, then a couple of months later I would phone in and say I'd need to page two done. Every time they came under budget, which is awesome! They are very friendly and they take a lot of time explaining to you about the car... an all-around nice atmosphere! ~Ann G.
