Never Use Water for Windshield Wiper Fluid

Most drivers are aware of how important it is to keep a clean windshield. Your safety can be jeopardized by the decreased visibility that debris, dirt, and insects can cause. Many people, unfortunately, make the mistake of trying to substitute water for proper windshield wiper fluid. Here's why this is a mistake:

The biggest reason that substituting water is dangerous is that it freezes at a much higher temperature than proper windshield wiper fluid, which can be a disaster is chilly winter weather. Real wiper fluid is designed to freeze at a lower temperature, which allows it to do its job in the cold.

Real wiper fluid also cleans better because of the cleaning solvents and detergents inside of it. Water will not do as good a job at breaking up grime and dead insects.

For all of these reasons, our team at Corley's Albuquerque Lincoln wants drivers to only use real wiper fluid.
