When you bring your VW to Jennings Volkswagen for another service, our technicians will inspect the windshield wiper blades to make sure that they’re in good condition. If the blades need to be replaced soon, we’ll let you know. But you don’t have to wait for the experts. There are ways to check your windshield wiper blades on your own. Take a look at the rubber that comes into contact with your Volkswagen model’s windshield. Is it cracked or otherwise damaged? If so, you’ll need to have the wiper blades replaced. You can even check while driving. If the windshield wipers leave streaks and smears on your windshield, or if they chatter and shudder when you activate them, you’ll need a new pair of wiper blades. Don’t let a sudden rainstorm take you by surprise and hamper your visibility; have this service performed right away!
When you’re looking for new windshield wiper blades, you might think about heading into your nearest auto parts shop and getting the cheapest pair there. While this certainly is possible, it’s not necessarily advisable. There’s no shortage of aftermarket windshield wiper blades, but they’re not always the best for your VW. For one thing, they’re made to fit as many vehicles as possible, which means that they’re likely to fit just fine on your VW. But they won’t fit the contour of your windshield quite as well as genuine VW wiper blades. Furthermore, a lot of aftermarket parts skimp on quality, meaning that you’ll just end up changing windshield wiper blades again soon. When you get genuine Volkswagen windshield wiper blades like the ones we use at Jennings Volkswagen, you can rest assured that they’re made of high-quality rubber compounds designed to stand up to the weather. Best of all, when you come to Jennings Volkswagen, you’ll get wiper blades installed by experts who know their way around your VW.
When you’re ready to have new wiper blades installed, schedule your service appointment online at Jennings Volkswagen. This is a relatively short service, so we invite you to stay and enjoy our comfortable waiting area. If you’re going to be pairing it with other services, ask about our courtesy loaners or complimentary Uber/Lyft services.
