This month’s article will be short and simple. Since this is the rainy time of year it’s a good time to think about visibility. Think about the last time it rained anyou were driving. Did you say to yourself, “I have to get new wipers”? That happens a lot. Then the next day the sun comes out and you forget.
Just so you know wipers only last a few months, six months maximum. With all the pollen in the air, they create a sandpaper effect on the windshield and wear out faster. Do yourself a favor and change them now. The next time it rains, you’ll thank yourself.
One other thing I wanted to remind you is to change your cabin air filter. Many cars have them now. It’s a small element that filters the air that comes through your cars air conditioning and heater system. It should be changed at least every two years. Scroll down to see a picture of a filter that I took out of a customer’s car. I won't give you his/her name to protect the innocent. It was the original filter and was in the car for six years. On the back of the filter was mold. A dirty filter can give off a musty odor. So do you think it’s a good idea to change it regularly? I do.
Be good to your car and yourself so you can see better and breath better.
