How often should I replace my windshield wiper blades?

This is a very common question we get asked here at Victoria Transmission and Auto Care. That’s because Victoria, more so than any other city outside of Vancouver, gets the most rain in Canada. Depending on quality, windshield wiper blades should last a full year before being replaced. In general, it is important to avoid using them when there are other substances on the windshield, such as snow, sap or leaves. When they start streaking, replace them right away. As we head into fall and winter here in Victoria, make sure you have good quality wiper blades installed to handle the increased precipitation. Here at Victoria Transmission & Auto Care we are happy to order in and replace your wiper blades in preparation for the changing season.
