I Can See Clearly Now: Wiper Blade Replacement In Reno

About 90% of our driving decisions in Crystal Bay are based solely on what we see. So having a good pair of windshield wipers is extremely vital.

Most Reno car owners have experienced the frustration and fear of not being able to see clearly during a storm, or when our sedan windshield is just dirty. In fact, it’s estimated that 46,000,000 drivers across the nation are driving with wipers that can’t adequately clear their windshield in a storm.

It seems like our wiper blades are always at their worst when we Reno car owners need them the most. If that sounds like you, you’ve got plenty of company in the Crystal Bay area. 78% of drivers only change their wiper blades after the blades function so poorly that they become a safety hazard.

Reno motorists need to change their thinking. Instead of blades being something to replace when they fail, we need to consider wiper blades as a critical sedan safety component. Then we’ll stay ahead of the storm.

Reno motorists really ought to replace wiper blades twice a year; in the spring and the fall. If you live in the colder parts of NV, you may even want to get special winter blades in the fall.

Winter blades are made to resist freezing. Speaking of winter and freezing Crystal Bay conditions, if your sedan has been sitting for a long time and the windshield becomes frozen, don’t use your wipers to clear off snow and ice. That can shred your blades and may even damage the wiper motor.

Your wiper blades live outside in the freezing cold and blistering Reno sun. Over time, they become hard and brittle, and then tear. They also lose their flexibility and just don’t clear the sedan windshield effectively. Worn wiper blades aren’t just a safety hazard for Reno car owners; they can also scratch their windshield. That may require replacing the entire sedan windshield – that’s a significant consequence for neglecting such a small part.

AutoNetTV and Castrol Premium Lube Express recommend Reno drivers replace worn blades right away. Your Reno service center can provide you with a quality replacement blade. At Castrol Premium Lube Express, they cost about the same as they would at the store – but installation is included.

Of course you also need washer fluid to help your blades do their vital work. Even though Castrol Premium Lube Express will top off the washer fluid with a full service oil change, it is a good idea to have some extra fluid at home. Bring it with you if you’re heading out on a road trip.

Always use windshield washer fluid. Plain water, even that fancy French bottled water, just doesn’t cut it. It can freeze in the fluid reservoir or on the windshield itself, making things worse. Besides, water won’t clean your windows as well.

So follow these tips to keep your windshield clear and your eye on the road.

How to Identify a Reputable Auto Shop and Avoid Auto Scams

How to Identify a Reputable Auto Shop and Avoid Auto Scams

Finding an auto shop that you can trust can sometimes be a difficult and time consuming decision. Here are tips on how to identify a reputable auto repair shop.

14508940_blogAccording to an article at huffingtonpost.com, “Being Aware of Auto Scams and Finding an Auto Shop You Can Trust”

“Get it in writing. If your car needs major work, gather several general estimates for comparison. (You may be charged if these estimates require dismantling the car.) Once you’ve chosen a shop, ask for a detailed estimate before you authorize repairs. Make sure there are no blank sections that could later be filled in; and take your signed copy in case you need it for comparison later.

Specify that you must be called to grant permission before additional repairs outside the original scope of work are made (another way dishonest shops ream their customers). Make sure the work order clearly specifies:

  • Repairs to be done.
  • All fees, including parts, labor, storage, loaner car, etc. Some shops charge a flat fee for labor on certain repairs, while others charge for actual hours worked. If the latter, ask for hourly rates — a certified mechanic should cost more than someone who rotates your tires.
  • Whether new, reconditioned, or used parts will be used. Some manufacturers void their warranties if original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts aren’t used.
  • Acceptable payment methods.” To read the entire article click here.

Understanding the Importance of Auto Maintenance

Understanding the Importance of Auto Maintenance

Avoiding regular auto maintenance could be a costly mistake on your budget. Learn why auto maintenance is important to prolong the life of your vehicle and your monthly budget.

auto careAccording to an article at edmunds.com, “Routine Car Maintenance”

“An Overview of Required Service
Car owners usually become aware of the need for routine maintenance at certain mileage intervals. These intervals are described in the owner’s manual or in our car maintenance section. Changing your oil every 3,000 miles as “recommended” by the quick oil change chains and car dealerships is typically more than twice as often as necessary. Again, look to the owner’s manual for proper scheduled car maintenance intervals.

Some vehicles will even have a reminder display indicating that a service, typically an oil change, is required at a certain mileage point. Still other vehicles will use a “maintenance minder,” which will only become illuminated when the work is actually required. A computer in the car’s engine makes a calculation based on a number of factors that more accurately determine the time at which oil begins to break down.” To read the entire article click here.
