Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with the standard brake service including a lifetime warranty on parts, labor and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, factory maintenance services, batteries, belt replacement, and fluid services.
The ASE-certified mechanics at Express Oil Change and Service Center perform routine check-ups inside an eco-friendly facility where all used motor oil is lovingly recycled. During the 10-minute oil change, the technicians drain each vehicle of its worn-out vital fluids before infusing it with up to five quarts of regular Valvoline oil, ensuring that each piston moves as smoothly as a buttered snake. A new oil filter keeps contaminants away from delicate parts, and a 20-point safety inspection ensures that air filters, steering, and suspension are all functioning properly. The auto doctors will also top off fluids, check exterior lights for continued flashiness, carefully inspect the undercarriage, lubricate the chassis, and rotate the tires.
Ecowash’s certified professionals have perfected the art of scouring and eliminating automobile blemishes with a variety of car-wash and detail services. The Express Best Wash begins with a thorough, environmentally friendly exterior wash that scrubs the grill, shines the wheels, and de-dirts the belly of your begrimed transporter. To top off the trip and leave the car’s shell as shiny as a brand-new cracker-jack ring, vehicles receive a tri-colored wax and polish. The entire process takes about four minutes, giving you plenty of time afterward to evict free-loading french fries from your car’s innards with the complimentary on-site vacuums.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change package, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians—all of which have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)—service vehicles at Jiffy Lube. In addition to performing oil changes, technicians offer preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical-system maintenance, among others. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
This Groupon can also be applied toward service appointments, such as oil changes that lubricate delicate moving parts, and wiper-blade installations that keep windshields clear of rain, snow, and stubble.
The staff at AAA Auto Detail Center knows how much you paid for your car. Well, maybe not the exact price. But they do know that it was likely a large investment—too large a cost to let your buggy fall victim to the hazards of weather damage, tar, and rust. That's why the company's team of technicians stand by five days a week to ensure clients can work needed detailing and maintenance into their busy work, home, and hobby-blogging schedules.
Once your car is in the capable hands at AAA Auto Detail Center, which has received an A+ rating on BBB, the team's main goal is to restore the lustrous glow it had as it rolled off the assembly line. To that end, the staff of technicians provides interior and exterior detailing services, which include paint buffing and 3M Scotchgard protection. Through their host of services, staffers aim to bring cars from the brink of looking worn out to looking like they drank from the oilrig of eternal youth. The bodywork-savvy staff augments cars' brand-new glow with cosmetic enhancements such as window tinting with Llumar films and dent repairs.
Ron Carroll's fascination with helicopters began in Vietnam, when the aircraft transported him and his fellow infantry through the jungles to the front lines. Two Purple Hearts, nearly 20 years, and a stint in the publishing industry later, Carroll happened upon a copy of Flying magazine and his interest quickly rekindled. He continued with flying lessons, deepening his desire to become a helicopter pilot.
Today, Carroll possesses a Gold Seal CFI certification from the Federal Aviation Administration and helms a team of three pilots with more than 25,000 combined hours of flight experience. With a fleet comprising Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters—as well as a TruFlite H flight simulator that lets aspiring pilots practice operating a helicopter while singing and without leaving the ground—the team has trained throngs of airmen, including Governor Sonny Perdue.
At Ultra Car Wash, three minutes is all it takes to rid cars of dirt that may have taken months to amass. Conveyor belts move cars through automated wash tunnels while hearty doses of hot carnauba waxes, tri-foams, and Rain-X protectants lather the exterior and soft cloths wipe grime free. At the end of each wash, customers are privy to free self-serve vacuum stations, which they may use for as long as it takes to rid car interiors of crumbs, dirt, and discarded sandwich crusts. And, for added convenience, these facilities feature self-serve pay stations allowing drivers to pick and pay for a wash package without even leaving
American LubeFast proliferates the purring perfection of engines with diligent oil changes, greasing gas-gulpers with up to 5 quarts of Chevron motor oil and a new filter. Additional services aid in making the next road trip, grocery run, or demolition derby even smoother.
ASE-certified technicians inhabit each America's Service Station, where vehicles can say goodbye to sludgy liquids and adopt up to 5 quarts of clean oil. Oil changes also present four-wheelers with fresh filters to protect the engine from speaking before thinking. The fall-maintenance package increases auto health to compensate for imminently excessive raw-scarecrow consumption. The bundle opens with an oil-and-filter change before a tire rotation aims to redistribute tread wear and lengthen wheels' lives. Additionally, technicians service the cooling system and refill up to one gallon of coolant, then perform a 27-point inspection—a visual examination wherein perceptive car scholars confirm that lights, brakes, and batteries haven't broken down or proclaimed themselves luddites.
When it comes to customer service, it’s the little things that matter. At 3 Minute Carwash & Detail, the little things include welcoming customers to free use of a vacuum area, glass cleaner, and towels, and keeping a comfortable lounge stocked with high-definition TV, and free WiFi. And though the fully automatic car wash is designed with efficiency in mind, that doesn't mean attention to detail has been sacrificed. Nine wash packages allow customers to customize their ride's bath time, whether they prefer a speedy rinse and dry or an elaborate interior and exterior detailing that includes an upholstery shampoo, express wax, and dashboard beard trim. And because they know that customers value flexibility, staff members also offer many services as à la carte options to allow drivers to build their own detail package on a budget.

The team keeps wheels rolling with factory-recommended maintenance and provides detailing services to keep the miles passing fashionably.
Sometimes, automobiles need a human touch to keep them looking their best. That's why all vehicles—from cars and oversized trucks to boats and farm equipment—that come to GT Express Detailing receive hand washes. But a simple wash isn't always enough, which is why its technicians also offer a full range of comprehensive detailing services intended to create spotless interiors and exteriors. To accomplish this, the team diligently waxes chassis, removes scratches from the paint, restores headlights, cleans engines, polishes chrome rims and bumpers, treats leather surfaces, and shampoos carpets to leave vehicles grime- and blemish-free.
Mirror Finish Auto Wash restores cars’ flashy finishes with automated cleaning methods that won’t scratch or damage paint. As cars move through the wash tunnels, a cleansing gauntlet of poly-flex material whips away caked-on grime or cake-shaped bumper stickers.
