Why does my windshield smear when I run my wipers?

Ah yes, the age-old question. Road film deposits that become trapped under the wipers cause streaks that appear on your windshield.

Do magnets damage my vehicle’s paint and finish?

Cardinals fans and soccer mom’s can breathe a sigh of relief. Car magnets will not harm your vehicle’s finish.

How often should I wash my vehicle?

Wash it when it’s dirty. If you drive your vehicle every day, we recommend that you wash it at least once a week. Washing weekly ensures that the paint surface is being properly cared for. If you go for too long without washing your vehicle, you may have allowed irreparable damage from bird droppings, bugs, dust micro scratches and acid rain. For many people, a car is the second largest investment they make after their home. It makes a lot [...]
