Automotive Tips from Blair's Ferry Automotive: Wiper Blades ? Signs of Wear

August 30, 2020

90% of our driving decisions are based on vision. Anything that impedes your vision can affect your driving safety – including a dirty windshield. In that sense, your wiper blades are an important safety system. Most Marion drivers will wait until their wipers have failed before they replace them. Then they find themselves in a driving situation around Iowa when they really need forward visibility only to discover that their wipers are worn or maybe even torn and can’t clear snow or rain from the windshield.

As an important safety system, wiper blades should be replaced BEFORE they fail. Test your wipers at least once a month. If they are not doing the job, your friendly and professional Blair's Ferry Automotive service advisor can replace them for you.
