With America's Best Car Care Plan, ASE-certified technicians keep autos running smoothly by injecting car insides with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional oil (upgrades to synthetic require additional charges) and performing a host of auto-maintenance services. Brake inspections and adjustments grant drivers the peace of mind that cars are safe and equipped for inclement weather and duck-crossing signs that come out of nowhere. Two tire rotations ensure automotive equilibrium can find long-lasting balance and tire grooves wear evenly.
Mark Wagner has been working under the hood of international automobiles since 1972. After securing a master's degree in mechanical engineering in Germany, Wagner ferried both his family and his familiarity with foreign cars to America, where, today, he teams up with the ASE-certified techs in his repair shop. The factory-trained mechanics dole out everything from tune-ups to engine, brake, and transmission repairs. And all of their work is backed by a 15-month, 15,000-mile warranty that prevents cars from worrying about waking up and seeing their name in the classified pages.

The auto aestheticians of Dent Wizard back their service with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
You don't need a stopwatch to know that Jiffy Lube's services are fast, but if you had one, the Signature Service Oil Change would clock in at the 20-minute mark. And you'd be getting more than just an oil change. Jiffy Lube technicians also top off fluids, inflate tires, inspect key components, and diagnose issues before they happen?all in less time than it takes to replace a shattered windshield with Saran-Wrap.
This blend of speed, quality, and preventative maintenance is at the core of Jiffy Lube's mission to maximize a vehicle's lifespan and keep it out of the repair shop. More than 20,000 of its technicians have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). These experts can perform many of the manufacturer-recommended services offered at dealerships, including air-filtration and electrical services?only without the need for appointments or long wait times. An impressive feat, considering that Jiffy Lube serves roughly 24 million customers each year.
Autologic Quality Auto Repair's work philosophy is transparency. In an effort to build trust with their clientele, they welcome clients to stop by the shop without warning and see how they operate on other cars, and it's this same devotion to open communication that garnered them AAA's Top Shop award for Washington state. Their talented mechanics perform a wide variety of services on virtually every part of the car. The mechanics have seen it all on almost every make and model, whether it's routine maintenance and oil changes or in-depth repairs on the dozens of hamster wheels on the drive train.
Of all the tools at Mark’s Auto Detail, the staff probably relies on the water heater most. That’s because hot water is used during each of the detail shop’s hand washes—the foundation for several different tiered details that feature top-notch car-cleaning tools such as Aquapel, premium carnauba wax, and clay bars. Equipped with these resources, the staff tidies up cars, boats, and RVs. They also offer window tinting to keep out the sun’s rays, heat, and bad driving directions.
