Discover Windshield Washer Fluid's Important Role

Your windshield wiper fluid does more than clean your windshield: it also lubricates the moving parts of your washer system. Without it, you'd likely have reduced visibility because using regular water would end up smearing bugs, dirt and debris across your windshield.

Why do drivers in Peoria, IL and beyond sometimes fill up their washer reservoir with water instead? We're not sure. Washer fluid is inexpensive and takes only a few minutes to replace. Unlike water, it helps to break up debris so you're not left with streaks on your windshield. It also freezes at a much lower temperature than water, which is beneficial for your washer system and moving parts. Also, it keeps your system lubricated for longer performance.

If you've noticed that you haven't changed your windshield washer fluid in a while, come by the Volvo service facility at Velde Volvo Cars of Peoria. We can replace your fluid and show you how you can top it off at home in the future.
