How Often Should You Replace Your Windshield Wipers?

To ensure that your vehicle’s windshield wiper blades are always performing at their best, it’s recommended that you replace them every six months, or sooner, if they are showing signs of not performing. Visual signs include streaks of water on the windshield after using them and not all the water, ice or snow being pulled away from your sightline after turning them on. Winter months can sometimes wreak havoc on your windshield wipers and you’ll need to replace them sooner.
