Why Windscreen Wipers are Essential for Safe Driving
Windscreen wipers are power-operated devices that keep the windshield clear of rain. A vehicle would not be fully functional without windscreen wipers, just like it would not be able to drive without wheels or tyres. Thus, making it essential to ensure that your vehicle has windscreen wipers and that they are performing at their optimal condition.
How Long Do Windshield Wiper Blades Last?
Oftentimes, people neglect to maintain the windscreen wiper blades of their vehicles. Windscreen wiper blades can last up to six months to a year on average, and the lifespan of windscreen wiper blades is determined by their usage frequency, exposure to sunlight and other environmental factors. Drivers are encouraged to do a routine check of their windscreen wipers, to regularly clean them and park in an enclosed space to avoid sunlight damage.
At CMH Mazda Randburg we offer windscreen wiper inspection and replacement services at your convenience.
