Should I consider using synthetic motor oil?

Synthetic engine oils are produced through a synthesis process that takes very small molecules and assembles them into larger designer molecules with premium lubricating properties.

When should I change my Oil and Oil Filters?

Every three to six months, or every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.

When should I replace my Windshield Wipers?

Every year or two (less in hot climates if a vehicle sits outside and is exposed to sunlight and high ambient temperatures).
