Kuni Honda on Arapahoe Provides Windshield Wipers 101

Centennial, Colorado – May 21st, 2012 - Kuni Honda on Arapahoe, an automotive dealership offering new and used Honda vehicles, provides a quick course in Windshield Wipers 101. Windshield Wiper Blades are one of the most neglected safety items on vehicles today. Many windshield wiper blades are cracked, split, torn, brittle, worn or otherwise in poor mechanical condition when put to the test of clearing your windshield.

Most driving decisions are made based upon a clear, unobstructed view of the road, which means that good visibility is absolutely essential. “Think about it, during wet weather when our vision may be obscured by water (from rain or even sprinkler splash), from road puddle splash, from sleet, from snow, from debris from the car in front of you, windshield wipers are an integral safety component,” said Herm Brocksmith, General Sales Manager at Kuni Honda on Arapahoe.

“In Colorado, we are subject to harmful sun, damaging ozone and severe winter road conditions as well as extreme temperature fluctuations on a daily basis all year round. All of these factors cause your windshield wipers to become unsafe and not perform. Windshield wipers don't last forever. In fact, most experts say that you should replace your windshield wipers every 6 months in Colorado. If your windshield wipers are chattering, streaking or failing to wipe your windshield cleanly and consistently, you need new windshield wipers,” continued Herm Brocksmith.

Windshield wipers are made from natural rubber that deteriorates over time. As a set of windshield wipers age, they lose much of their flexibility and become less able to wipe the windshield cleanly. The sun actually "bakes" the rubber and can deform or harden the rubber material. Cold weather and freezing temperatures makes the rubber hard and brittle. Ice and snow can damage the windshield wiper blade increasing the tendency to crack or split the blade. These conditions cause windshield wipers to streak, skip or chatter across the glass.

Heavy usage can be hard on windshield wiper blades as well. Dust, abrasives, road grime and even bug juice wear away the edge of the wiper blade that is much needed to wipe cleanly.

If wipers are not in good condition, a driver will see why when they attempt to wipe the windshield washer fluid off the glass.

Kuni Honda Arapahoe recommends changing wiper blades twice per year so that windows remain clear. An easy way to remember is when changing clocks for daylight savings. Change them before winter sets in and before summer. “For your safety, keep your windshield wipers in good condition. At Kuni Honda, we offer "Good, Better, Best" selections in all price ranges for variable driving conditions. Check out our competitive prices on windshield wipers.” said, Herm Brocksmith.
