Family-owned Scholfield Honda, a founding member of Green Biz Wichita, performs warranty services on Hondas and oil changes and light maintenance––such as brake jobs and Kansas inspections––on all makes and models. The service center was awarded Wichita's 2010 Clean Air Award for its Generation Green project, which offers eco-friendly oil changes ($34.95). The auto maintainery's expert technicians can administer an express oil change ($32.95) or a hybrid express oil change ($42.95) to keep a car's engine from sounding like a chainsaw cutting through a lawnmower. For shining a car's epidermis, Scholfield offers an express detail ($79.95) or complete detail ($129.95). All services include a 19-point inspection and car wash.
The stalwart mechanics at Don Hattan Chevrolet have been extending engines' lives for more than 60 years. Mechanics replace particle-bunged engine lube with 5 quarts of fresh, unfettered 5-W30 oil and draft standard oil filters for sentry duty, protecting engines against the threat of invasive pollutants or escape-minded sparkplugs. During their 27-point inspection, mechanics assess vital vehicle features to ensure that autos will safely withstand the winter months. Speedy washes spirit dust and smudging away from exterior surfaces, and vacuums purge interiors of stubborn carpet parasites and the molted husks of old ice scrapers.
At the Eddy's Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram of Wichita, factory-trained technicians helm the service department with state-of-the-art equipment, OEM replacement parts, and the know-how necessary to get cars back on the road. There, they offer everything from routine oil changes to small- and large-scale repairs. Meanwhile, in the showrooms and on the lots, non-commissioned salespeople provide helpful and no-pressure assistance, pointing out the new inventory of Chryslers, Dodges, Jeeps, and Rams. The lots also feature pre-owned vehicles from many makers, some of which include Carfax reports to fill buyers in on the cars' histories.
