Transgap Executive Limousine's fleet of sleek black sedans have been ferrying customers to and from DC's airports for more than a decade. The punctual, polite drivers know the city better than its founders, Romulus and Remus, preventing delays when heading to the airport or unnecessary detours on the way back home. And the town cars' plush leather interiors make passengers feel like the kings and queens they are, at least until they get to the airport security checkpoint.
Allen Automotive keeps cars on the road and out of the shop with a comprehensive menu of auto-maintenance services for any make or model. Up to five quarts of oil suffuse engines with fresh lubrication during the regular oil change, and the synthetic oil change promises a transfusion of up to seven quarts. Following the oil swap-out, Allen Automotive mechanics perform a visual inspection of the vehicle to spot potential problems and test their sense of object permanence. The service usually lasts about 45 minutes, depending on the car. Technicians adhere to the shop's strict code of ethics, which promises fair, quality service with no insider trading of dashboard ornaments.
When Gary Lockhart lost his job as an engineering technician, he took a bold step into a new industry: auto detailing. The Washington Business Journal profile of Lockhart and his enterprise, Finish'N Touch Mobile Wash & Detail Service, details his ups and downs, including the decision to move out of his shop and make his business fully mobile. This has allowed him to cater more closely to customer convenience, driving his fully equipped van to driveways and parking lots for fast hand washes or specialty services such as engine cleaning and window-tint removal. Much of his success has depended on word of mouth, with enthusiastic customers singing his praises to coworkers, neighbors, and dogs with learner's permits.

The ASE-certified technicians at Charles Automotive have spent the last 37 years neck-deep in car hoods and undercarriages. Their scheduled maintenance checkups, oil changes, and fluid flushes keep cars hugging the road for years to come, and their skilled repair services ensure that engines, transmissions, and brakes operate in peak form. For cars with unsteady traction or insatiable shoe-shopping addictions, technicians pull from a wide selection of new tires and perform rotations and balancing to give them an even gait and a firm grip on slippery roads. Once vehicles have departed the garage full of vigor and fresh fluids, technicians make sure to recycle all used oils and coolants to keep them from harming the planet. The staff also offers pickup and drop-off services at the nearby Metro station for customers temporarily bereft of their trusty rides.
