At Genie Car Washes, nearly a half-century of business success lends an air of assured experience to locations recently upgraded with $500,000 in renovations. A large staff efficiently shuttles vehicles through a wash tunnel cushioned with foam pads designed to leave exteriors unscratched. Patrons can choose between one of six multistep car washes, or cherry-pick ? la carte services such as leather conditioning, engine cleaning, and headlight restoration. Detailing packages assemble extra touches that subject disheveled cars to white-glove once-overs including trunk cleanings and carpet steam cleanings.
Anthony D. Chavira opened ATX Imperial Auto Glass to correct the shortcomings he saw in other auto-glass businesses. Prioritizing customer relationships over sales, Anthony has managed to spread his brand of service across eight shops where technicians endure rigorous training to earn certifications from Delta Kits, the National Glass Association, and the National Windshield Repair Association. After they’ve mended glass wounds such as rock chips and cracks or replaced entire panes, the crew caps off each service by vacuuming interiors, washing windows, and burning busted glass on a pyre.
Since 1954, Carter’s Auto Repair has maintained and repaired cars of all makes and models. Today, the shop's three locations are manned by a crew of ASE-certified technicians adept at inspecting everything from trucks and SUVs to sedans and smart cars. The team checks and repairs engines, transmissions, and suspension systems, as well as replacing malfunctioning clutches and servicing air conditioners. Beyond major repairs, Carter’s also helps vehicular health by changing oil, rotating tires, and stuffing vegetables into the fuel tank.
Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigour with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to U.S. EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
