Accessory: Heated wiper blades.
Cost: $120 to $200 per set.
While auto accessory manufacturers make affordable heavy-duty wiper blades designed for winter driving, the automotive aftermarket world also includes heated windshield wiper blades for added performance at a higher price.
Jim Weiler, co-owner of Everblades, says his company's heated blades don't get clogged with ice and snow while driving, helping to avoid pulling off the road to de-ice while empowering drivers with better vision behind the wheel.
If you're considering heated wiper blades to chart a clearer course through the snow, it's important to consult the blade manufacturer to make sure a set will fit your car's windshield.
