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.
Tucked between Aley Park and the Arkansas River, Shear Bliss and its team of talented stylists welcome clients and their hair before sending them out the door with a brand new look. Haircuts for adults, children, and seniors keep ever-growing locks in line, while color and texturizing treatments add smoothness, shine, or a fresh hue.
Interstate All Battery Center leads the charge in power outposts, providing reserve-power road trippers with brand-new batteries for their trucks, cell phones, computers, and more. With a vast storehouse of more than 16,000 products, Interstate carries batteries for nearly every brand of laptop and PC, as well as a plethora of automotive batteries to restore sedans, coupes, and station wagons after a long night of headlight staring contests. Household powerables are also available, including 24-packs of AAs ($8.99+) for bulk buyers, an Energizer 9V alkaline battery ($4.49) for metronomes possessed by surprisingly funky eighth notes, and one case of Lite Brite fuel, distilled from corn syrup and Olympic silver medals. Old used batteries find comfy retirement at Interstate’s recycling center, allowing their former owners and well-meaning grandchildren to rest easy.
Joe's Seat Cover & Car Wash's brushless cleaning system has been restoring show-room shines to cars since 1954. The full-service wash deluges cars with torrents of soap and water, sweeping away road filth without brushes that may damage the paint or give the bumper a rash. Techs plow through interior debris with hungry vacuums, and bring the shiny exteriors to a droplet-less glow with a delicate hand wash. Cockpits forfeit accumulated dust after a dash cleanup leaves surfaces spick-and-span, and window washes allow sunlight to filter in through streak-free ports. With the North West Street facility open seven days a week, drivers can squeeze washes into packed schedules without wedging cars into the bathtub. Today's deal doesn't expire until March 28, 2012, making it a good holiday gift idea.
Continuing the traditions of 14 years of family ownership, The Clutch Guys' freshly minted facility hosts ratchets that ring out as trained mechanics perform quick and thorough automotive-maintenance services. The shop's full stock of diesel and synthetic lubes and specialty filters ensure no car is left creaking to a halt or ransacking oil rigs when due for an oil change. The full-service staff also tackles repair jobs including transmission fixes, and drivers who sense more imperceptible symptoms of an ailing auto can pull into the bay doors for a free diagnostic.
