If you notice any of these things, make sure to bring the vehicle in as soon as possible so we can inspect it for you.
The change of season is a good time to remember to change the windshield wipers for your vehicle. When you do this, it helps to keep them in the best operating condition possible. The wipers will be able to clear away any and all precipitation that is on the windshield. This time of the year it can be rain, sleet, frost, or snow flurries. You will want to make sure the windshield wipers are up to the best condition they can be in. If you are not sure how to change the wipers, bring the vehicle in and we can do it for you.
Along with the wipers, also check the windshield washer fluid. This will also help to remove any road grime that is on the windshield. Dirt, mud, salt, and other debris can all get stuck on the windshield as you drive. Having it removed will help improve your visibility as you drive. It is highly recommended that you have extra washer fluid in the back seat of your car or truck. This way you will not run out of any, when you are not near a place you can purchase it. Driving safe is important, so make sure your visibility is the best it can be.
