Why is it Important to Use Windshield Wiper Fluid?

Your visibility is essential as you navigate the Houston area. You may think that it's okay to fill your washer reservoir with plain water when you're in a pinch, but that's not the case. Why do our Volvo service professionals encourage you to only use dedicated washer fluid?

Washer fluid breaks up bugs and debris better than plain water. You may notice less streaking with windshield wiper fluid, compared with water. Additional reasons to only use washer fluid include:

  • Water freezes at a higher temperature than washer fluid, and can damage your lines and pump
  • A full reservoir helps protect your washer system from damage
  • Water can grow bacteria, while washer fluid comes designed to reduce potential health hazards for both you and your vehicle

Here at Momentum Volvo Cars, we know you have a lot going on. Let our service team refill or replace your washer fluid at regular intervals so you can maintain your visibility.
