How Long Do Wipers Last?

Many factors affect the longevity of your vehicle’s windshield wipers. These factors can make your wipers age faster, causing you to replace them or service them more frequently. Some of these factors are:

  • Usage: The more you use your windshield wipers, the faster they will wear down.
  • Vehicle Storage: Where your car is parked, or if you keep it covered can affect your wipers. Vehicles that stay covered need less wiper maintenance.
  • Your Environment: If you live in an area that gets little rain, this can be especially hard on your vehicle’s wipers since dry heat can cause cracks and damage.

Remember to always check your windshield wipers before heading out on the roads of Escondido, this could save you the stress of having damaged or broken wipers in the rain.

Are Your Windshield Wipers Bad?

It is recommended that a vehicle’s windshield wipers be serviced or replaced once a year but this doesn’t mean they can’t go bad sooner. There are signs you can look out for that indicate your windshield wipers are going bad and could cause problems. Always check your wipers frequently for the following:

  • Wet Streaks: Good windshield wipers should leave your windshield clean of water. Wet streaks could mean a worn-away blade.
  • Water Spots: Wet spots leftover after the wipers pass could mean the blade can longer wipe away water because of a tear.
  • Squeaking Sound: If your wipers squeak or make any sound as they pass, is a sign of damage to the rubber of the blade.
  • Vibration: If your wiper jerks or vibrates along the glass is a bad sign and could mean the joint is not connected properly.
