Technicians at Auto Effects equip cars with Prestige by Audiovox APS 51 remote starters able to activate engines and prep cold morning cars from up to 800 feet away. After deft techs install the auto augmentation, drivers roll away with a remote that can start engines, warm up cars, and shoo away hibernating lifeguards from the cozy comforts of their home or office. The keypad also allows drivers to activate the panic alarm in case of emergency, and grants them keyless entry to their car without having to dig in their pockets, slip a key into the lock, and hum the chorus of ”King of the Road.” Each remote-starter system is backed by a two-year warranty on parts and labor.
As a franchise of the well-known Valero fuel company, Zelienople Valero Gas Station, Convenience Store, & Car Wash tends to cars and customers with professional service and a triple threat of filling station, car wash, and convenience store. Patrons fill up their vehicles from a liquid buffet of regular, plus, and premium gas or on- and off-road diesel, and quell the mewling, auto-tuned hunger pangs of grill tanks and motor homes at the propane filling station. At the car wash, automated passes of Ryko Soft Touch brushes and sheets of cleansing foam polish car undercarriages and exteriors, and a feast of breakfast tornadoes, pizza, pepperoni rolls, soft pretzels, and soft-serve ice cream awaits famished travelers in the store.
Spitzer Autoworld has been providing exemplary auto service for more than 100 years, having gotten its start selling and leasing Ford Model Ts. With today’s deal, soiled street wagons can ungrunge their outsides for the foreseeable future with a quintet of washes ($12 value each), during which their exteriors will be lovingly cleansed of accumulated grime and restored to factory-fresh spotlessness. Dirt-averse drivers can also opt for just one exterior clean but supplement it with the added perk of a standard oil change ($35 value) to re-lubricate crusty engines and inhibit corrosion, plus a 27-point auto inspection ($45 value) to ensure the car still has at least 27 parts.
The neon sign flashing OPEN outside of Ultimate Shine Auto Wash never shuts off. All day, every day, the full-service car wash welcomes cars into its arms for one of three washes. But it never actually touches them—lasers guide the 360-degree cleaning machine, adjusting its soapy almost-hug to conform to the shape of cars, trucks, and SUVs alike. Self-serve wash stations put the control in the hands of drivers, allowing them to spruce up vehicles with a foaming brush and discipline misbehaving hood ornaments with a high-pressure water wand.
Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corp., Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto accessory and detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations in 30 countries.

To protect cars inside and out, Ziebart technicians also install accouterments such as alarm systems to thwart thieves and sunroofs to thwart unflattering film negatives from processing correctly (services may vary by location).
