Q: Wipers can’t keep up with the weather

asked by on

I recently bought a 2013 Kia Soul and have put around 12,000 miles on it so far. I went through the normal process of winterizing my car last fall, as the area I live in gets a lot of snowfall. I also like going up to the mountains when it snows. I added higher quality windshield fluid, windshield wipers and tires to prepare for this but even with wiper blades that were built to work in snow, the wipers were very weak. Is there a way to upgrade the motor for these? I don’t know what to do and winter is coming up soon.
