It is very easy to overlook how horribly cold it can get in the Winter and how certain fluids in your car will react to that. Traditional windshield fluid can freeze during freezing temperatures when coming in contact with your windshield and can be rather dangerous, limiting the driver’s visibility.

Winter-specific fluid is specially formulated not to freeze and can help melt and release ice and snow from your windshield. Having the right windshield wipers that can handle the thickness of snow is also very important to have your windshields clear. Revive Auto Repair carries windshield wipers for all models and includes free installation! Stop by and converse with one of our experienced automotive professionals, and we would be more than happy to find you the precise fit for your automobile.
