With lube and service centers spread across America, Valvoline Instant Oil Change ensures that roads from coast to coast teem with automotive vigor. Certified technicians perform a roster of services, including quick in-and-out oil changes that allow motorists to arrive without an appointment and remain in their car while Valvoline oils forge a truce between metal parts. Facilities also encourage odometers to reach up to 300,000 miles with an engine-guarantee program that helps motors live long enough to see tow trucks go extinct. Valvoline extends its care to cars of all makes and models as well as charitable organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
A cave stands near the entrance of Aqua Auto Spa. Cars approach slowly, their drivers peering into its dark recesses. Inside, soft cloths burnish vehicle exteriors in a matter of minutes, making them as a shiny as the sun’s mouthful of braces. All washes come with free use of the self-serve vacuums, plus complimentary glass cleaner, wipe-down towels, and dash dusters. Nearby, an industrial washing basin brims with towels, brushes, and grooming shears. Here, dog owners can lather pups’ fur with canine shampoo or style it into a handsome pompadour.
For the full-service Triple Shine wash at Grandview Auto Wash, automatic coupe cleansers buff and polish sullied exteriors before a vacuum-wielding hominid sweeps through the inside. Crusty cars cruise through the shower, where eco-friendly suds shimmy across wheels, windows, underbodies, and hood gargoyles, removing unsightly soils. Expunged exteriors shine like a bronze statue of a socialite's dog after a clear-coat protectant and triple clear-coat polish. Finally, a car concierge wraps wet wagons with a terry-cloth embrace until they are cozy and dry, then hops inside to wipe down consoles, swab windows, and quietly propose new bumper-sticker slogans.
Crystal Clean Car Wash shines and polishes all surfaces of vehicles with high-pressure sprays, foaming presoaks and wheel cleaner, and interior vacuuming at two automatic stations and eight self-service stations. While giving auto bodies a glistening sheen, the wash's extensive filtration system channels all wastewater into a sand-oil separator for future treatment rather than sullying the earth with untreated surfactants and needless erosion. Teams of dedicated detailers meticulously purify the inside and outside of cars, trucks, and SUVs, and the Fleet Program allows squadrons of delivery trucks, company cars, and rented dirigibles to freshen up in the car-wash bays. In addition to restoring paint jobs and removing sheets of dust and grime, Crystal Clean Car Wash supports the efforts of local nonprofits and charities by making its facility available for fundraising car washes.
When overcast winter skies and spring storm clouds clear, the roads begin to glisten with freshly washed cars. With 12 locations across Missouri and Kansas, there?s a pretty good chance that many of those vehicles visited a Squeaky Clean Car Wash. Whether it?s a soft-cloth tunnel car wash or a touchless, in-bay spraydown, rides leave dirt-free in a matter of minutes. Every wash comes with complimentary access to a self-serve vacuum, and select locations allow patrons to take matters into their own hands at self-serve washing bays. At their Quick Lube locations, Squeaky Clean flushes out sludgy fluids and also invites pet owners to hose down canines and pet mammoths preserved in tar at self-serve dog washes.
Lee's Summit Mitsubishi’s service-department techs perform mechanical magic beneath hoods and undercarriages to keep Mitsubishis and autos of all makes and models running smoothly. Body-shop staffers free car bodies from dents and dings, and well as rotate tires, align brakes, and inspect vehicles for further problems by tapping them with a knee hammer to check their reflexes. Out on the sales floor, friendly sales people introduce visitors to new and used models of Mazdas, Mitsubishis, Volkswagens, and other automobiles.
