New Oasis Car Wash & Lube's skilled staffers pamper weathered rides with exterior-only and full-service car washes and detailing packages. Eco-friendly products lend their services to the automated wash tunnel, which features a reverse-osmosis water-filtering system to minimize postwash water spots and zebra stripes. To enhance vehicles' inner beauty, technicians offer maintenance services ranging from oil changes to transmission flushes to fuel-injection-system cleanings.
At the AAA–approved facilities, mechanics attend to vehicles with all the skill and understanding you'd expect from ASE–certified technicians. Versed in every make and model of car out there, they dive underneath hoods and reinvigorate autos with Interstate batteries and products from BG Products Inc., repairing anything that's broken and slapping down a 24-month, 24,000-mile warranty. This castle of car care doubles as a state-certified emissions-inspection facility, and their shuttle treats auto owners to free rides whenever it's not busy rescuing helpless jalopies from junkyards.
A lifelong car enthusiast, eMotorsWest.com founder Todd Lutes envisioned a robust online presence for his car dealership that would help drivers make purchasing decisions. Lutes personally picks every vehicle on the lot, drawing upon years of experience to cultivate a selection of different autos from brands such as Toyota, Acura, and Jeep. At the dealership's adjoining service center, service manager Jim Moore and his staff of repair technicians perform all manner of automotive services, from simple oil changes to emotional support for cars dealing with a recent fender bender.
M.K. Auto Inc. connects drivers with used automobiles and keeps existing vehicles healthy and rolling. Sales reps oversee a searchable database of used coupes, sedans, vans, SUVs, trucks, and wagons, and the auto center's service shop offers basic maintenance and helps keep air clean with standard smog tests instead of spending weekends stuffing dirty clouds into air mattresses.
Quick Wash Waterless was born in 2011, when California was in a drought and water was scarce. Why not, the founders thought, start a car-washing business that spruces up automobiles without using water? And they did just that.
Expert technicians travel to locations across Sacramento, toting soft cloths, vacuums, and professional polishes. They gussy up the interior and exterior of vehicles, finishing jobs off with professional waxing treatments and thorough shampoos. They also use a biodegradable formula that waxes and washes your car at the same time. They can service cars parked nearly anywhere within the area, excluding private lots, locked garages, and troll-guarded underpasses. Every wash saves 38 gallons of water, and a portion of the proceeds go towards constructing wells in Africa to provide clean drinking water.
Von Housen Mercedes-Benz's vehicular geniuses pamper the most mobile member of the family with an eight-hour inspection and detailing package. During the vehicular makeover (a $255 value), a thorough scrubdown sweeps grime and dust away before gentle wax seals out future interlopers to maintain the paint’s just-washed luster. Crumbs meet their match in the form of hungry vacuums, while car stylists hide wear and tear by shampooing frazzled carpets and giving comb-overs to balding floor mats. A rubber and vinyl protection guards non-metal parts of the exterior, and the tire shine waxes grubby wheels into lustrous spinners. Window washers remove evidence of splattered insects, while auto internists clean the engine compartment in preparation for the maintenance inspection.
