Waxing a car's hood

How should you wash and wax your car?

Like we always like to say, “Clean car, Clean mind.” If you or someone you know is a daily commuter, or just rely on your care for any amount of time daily, you know how quickly a clean car can go to dirty.  It’s easy and very possible for dirt to build up on the body of your car and cause long term wear and damage to the body of your car.

How to get the most out of a car camping trip

Camping is a great way to get outdoors and experience some true, unadulterated nature. Camping today, though, has a lot of different mediums. There extremes on both sides of the spectrum.

Schworer Volkswagen vehicle maintenance and service Lincoln NE

Maintenance on a vehicle can be costly, but it is necessary. Routine oil changes, tire rotations, and fluid monitoring can save you loads in the long run, as well as prolong the life of your car. One major component of routine maintenance that is often overlooked is wheel alignment. When you get a car new, the wheels are all straight and correctly calibrated. Over time, from wear and tear, curb brushes, and parking stall taps, your wheels come out of alignment. Much like human bones and joints, the ones in your car’s steering and wheel systems may become weak over time. To correct this, it makes sense to regularly check on your wheels’ alignment.
