New cars can definitely be confusing, and
windshield wipers
are an essential part of safe driving! Here’s how to turn them on:
  • Push down on the lever on the right of your steering wheel. Pushing down one click will give you interval speed, a second click will give you low speed, and the third click will give you high speed.
  • You can also turn the interval band (INT) on the wiper lever to increase or decrease the time between swipes.
  • If you just need one swipe, push the lever up instead of down.
  • If you need to clean your windshield with wiper fluid, simply pull the lever towards you.
Did you know that rain is the most dangerous driving condition in the United States? Practicing good wiper use is a great way to keep yourself safe during bad weather, but you should make sure you have a good insurance policy, too. The
