GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn  --  What is the most important accessory on your vehicle? Some may say it's the radio and stereo system. Others may say the air conditioning or heater, but a better answer would be the windshield wipers.

If your wiper blades aren't working well when you venture out into inclement weather, safety can be compromised. Without them, you wouldn't be able to see the road ahead when driving in the rain, snow or sleet.

Clear vision is essential to safe driving, so it's important to change your wiper blades regularly. How do you know it's time? A good rule of thumb is to act quickly when the wipers start to smear or leave streaks on the glass. If the blades make a screeching noise or sound like they're bouncing against the glass when in use, it also is a good time to change them out.

There are plenty of wiper blade brands on the market, but it's a good idea to seek out the replacement blades that are right for your vehicle. The mechanics at Brookdale Honda know exactly which blades your Honda needs, so when the time comes to switch them out, be sure to bring your vehicle back to their service department.
