The automotive technicians at Allied Auto Repair, Inc. want clients to see what they see. To accomplish this feat, they offer to record a video of every service they perform, from major repairs to routine maintenance. By embracing transparency, Allied's repairmen not only earn clients' trust, but also educate each owner on his or her car's unique needs, such as which flavor oil it prefers. In addition to upholding the standards of the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence while working on all major brands of foreign and domestic vehicles, technicians also operate a detail shop where they buff exteriors and condition interiors to a like-new sheen. This commitment to enhancement extends to clients amenities such as courtesy vehicle inspections, complimentary shuttle service, and 24-hour drop-off.
Since its founding in 1978, the international quick-lube franchise Grease Monkey has maintained its focus on speedy treatments and a detail-oriented approach to auto care. Shop technicians tune up rides with services such as air-conditioning repair, air-filter replacement, and fuel- and emissions-system cleaning. Grease Monkey's signature service, though, is its full-service oil change. After replacing a vehicle's lubricant with GF-5 or re-refined motor oil, technicians perform an entire review of its maintenance needs, referencing the owner's manual and the wise hermit living in the trunk.

Jet Chevrolet’s team of ASE-certified mechanics keeps engines purring prettily with services including preventive oil changes, tire rotations, and diagnostic checks. Each oil-change appointment begins with an exacting 27-point inspection, which tests cars for mechanical troubles, latent problems, and the ability to count to 27. Technicians sift up to 6 quarts of fresh standard oil through a newly installed filter to lubricate delicate moving parts and keep contaminants at bay. A new pair of wiper blades and an Accuvision windshield treatment help fling water out of lines of sight on rainy days.
