Visit Computer Tune & Lube -- just minutes from Portland -- to have your Wiper Blades Replaced
Windshield wiper blades should be changed twice a year! Most people tell us they can’t remember the last time they changed their wipers. If you can’t see where you are driving then that’s a problem and we don’t realize we need new wipers until it’s raining in Portland!
The cold weather in Portland makes the wiper brittle and the hot sun in Portland makes the wiper blade dry. That’s why twice a year replacement is suggested. If you buy wiper blades near Portland at Computer Tune & Lube we will install them for you as part of the service. Some wiper blades have a dot on them that will be black when they are new and when they require changing it will turn yellow. I think this is a great idea as long as you know what the dot is for...
When your wiper blades get torn it is usually self inflicted. Especially with the cold winters we've been having in Portland. What happens is we use our wipers when it is snowing and we get home and just shut our car off and don’t turn the wipers off? We get up the next morning in Portland and start our car and the wipers are frozen to the windshield but they are still turned on! This is how the wiper blades get ripped or it can also be caused by our over exuberant windshield scraping.
A tip in the winter time, if you know there is going to be a storm in Portland is to pop up the wiper blades. You can do this on all vehicles but you can do it on many of them. It will make it a lot easier to clean your windshield in Portland in the morning.

Being from out of town (NJ), travelling to our Hartford office, and having my electrical go haywire, I was lucky to stumble on this place. The GM, Daniel, was upfront, reasonable and explained that critters had eaten my wiring... so for a battery/alternator and wires, the overall price was fair, the work was done in the day, a loaner car was offered and used. Dan even stayed 1/2 hour after closing to accommodate my travelling back from my Hartford office. While I never like to spend money, this was value given and received, thus the high rating.”- Eric M., Somerset, NJ
