More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.

In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.

Since 1998, the ASE-certified mechanics at The Star Auto Service have issued drivers a simple promise: “If you drive it on Earth, we’ll probably service it.” From within the tool-packed service bays of this certified NAPA Auto Center, the techs live up to that promise every day, tackling jobs ranging from oil changes and preventive maintenance to engine replacements, transmission work, and electronics overhauls. High-tech diagnostic equipment burrows to the source of potential problems, and a 21st Century tune-up unearths an even more in-depth analysis. In addition to its initial promise, the team also abides by a strict code of ethics, which dictates its commitments to the customer and how to conduct a drag race between minivans.

The friendly folks at Kwik Kar are dedicated to providing stellar customer service that goes above and beyond the competition. The full-service, conventional 20-point oil change acts as a preventative maintenance program by checking and refilling all fluids and checking the pressure in all tires. During the oil change, Kwik Kar's certified mechanics will replace old, worn-out oil with fresh-faced young fluid straight out of college and ready to take on the heat, dust, and incredible pressures of today's high-octane internal-combustion world. To help new oil adjust to its new job of safeguarding precious moving parts, gaskets, and various shafts, a fresh oil filter is included. Though all oil changes include a front-interior vacuum, Kwik Kar's complimentary express wash will give a much-needed ego boost to the most mobile member of your family.
