What are the signs of bad wiper blades?
"When a blade is past its physical prime, it will show wear signs like cracking or discoloration. Another indicator that it's time to be changing your wipers is by the quality of the wipe. Streaking or unwiped areas are a dead giveaway. If the blades make noise or chattering sounds, then they need to be replaced."
How OFTEN should I replace my wiper blades?
"If your wipers don't have a special indicator, the National Highway Transportation Board recommends that drivers change their windshield wipers, at minimum, every year (every six months is ideal). However, the average vehicle owner replaces his/her wipers only once every 2.5 years.
"'Most people wait until they are in a downpour and nearly drive off the road before they are convinced it's time to change the blades,' says Jenifer Maddox, product manager for PEAK Automotive Products."
