Sam Meineke opened his three-bay muffler shop in 1972 with a single product line, and through time, he and his successors have expanded the business into a complete automotive car-care center. Today, nearly 900 franchise owners operate their locations around the globe, still standing on the firm foundation of Sam's ideal of nursing vehicles back to health at fair prices. Meineke Car Care Center's mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
The experts at VIP Auto Customs help car owners protect their vehicles from the scourge of thieves, the elements, and dull, boring hubcaps—and they’ve done so since 1993. VIP's high-quality 3M films reject incoming heat and decrease interior visibility, and its staffers can also install premium features like Avital keyless-entry systems to keep drivers in control of their vehicle from a distance. Technicians can equip roadsters with iridescent, brand-name rims or deck out trucks with new surround-sound speakers. VIP Auto Customs also offers Scotchgard paint-protection films for when you drive off with something on the roof of your car, such as coffee or another car.
One Stop Auto Care is a complete auto-maintenance and repair facility that has been providing reliable service since 1989. During the oil change and 28-point inspection, the experienced technicians, most of which are ASE Certified or Master Technicians, drain away the gunk in the vehicle's veins, add new auto-plasma, swap out the exhausted filter with a fresh one, check the brakes, chassis, and alignment for dangerous defects and lodged gourds, and inspect the rear half of the vehicle for signs of junk. One Stop's standard oil change replenishes up to five quarts in all light vehicles, such as cars, trucks, vans, and combustion-driven chariots.
VJ's, an assembly of expert, ASE-certified car technicians with more than 150 years of accumulated experience, executes AAA-approved car inspections and efficient oil changes. To prevent soot buildup and imp-filter failure, your car’s viscous, gremlin-drowning moat must be replaced at manufacturer-recommended intervals. VJ's ASE-certified technicians swap the oil, ensuring that your engine remains well lubricated and works as reliably as a German-engineered robo-dog. During the AAA inspection, deft car handlers also rotate tires, check, adjust, and check brakes, and attend to filters and fluids.

They also sell premium wheels and tires and free cars from dents caused by debris on the road or the scornful gaze of golf carts.
Technicians at G5 Tint Shop and Window Covers shroud automotive eyes with Silhouette quality tinted films. During the two-hour service, ray refractors lay the stylish charcoal-colored UV-protecting film across car windows to keep the interior cool and free from upholstery-ruining melted crayons. The dual-ply construction of the aluminum films also protects peepers from distracting glares and seats and consoles from the sun's color-sucking rays. With precise application by experienced techs, the quick-drying films are backed by a lifetime warranty and guarantee that homeless birds will no longer covet comfy back seats.
