Elite Car Care Centers' ASE-certified technicians revamp waning cars and engines with a vast range of repair and maintenance services. Focusing on preventative maintenance, the techs change oil, rotate tires, and perform thorough inspections of the intricate belts and hamster wheels of the modern car engine to insure their proper function. Elite Car Care Center's talented body repairmen can handle crinkled doors, dented bumpers, and beaten grills. If a car can't make the journey on its own four wheels, staffers will go on-location and tow it to their nearest shop, and a shuttle service gives customers a lift to work or home during lengthier service sessions.
Xtreme Auto Detail pampers steely steeds with an extensive array of dirt-expunging services, leaving dazzling interiors and gleaming paint jobs in its wake. The shop's savvy staff members, drawing on more than 25 years of experience, exorcize the unsightly exoskeletons of insects and built-up road crust from automotive hides with a thorough wool-mitten hand washing. An exterior buffing exfoliates battered panels, shedding minor scratches and allowing inner beauty to shine through, and a painstaking polish locks out grime as effectively as Mr. Bubble's panic room. Xtreme Auto Detail's elite technicians vacuum all interior carpets, handily eliminating crumbs before cleaning upholstery, carpets, seats, and mats. Bovine dermatologists pamper leather surfaces with conditioner, and also beautify windows, exposed vinyl, and crossbow slits.
For 15 years, Custom Films' technicians have adorned cars with heat-rejecting, cosmetically enhancing 3M window tints. The expert tinters meticulously apply the solar-security guard, smoothly layering glass in films that maintain cool interior temperatures, fashion a sleek image, reduce glare, and protect drivers from being blinded by sequin-suited flash mobs. Vehicles slip into a pair of two-window sunglasses and sleekly cruise around town, and full-size cars strap on four side-window films and a rear-window tint to roam unbothered by scalding-hot car seats or blinding sun rays. Fostering the use of technology, the nonmetalized films prevent interference, ensuring cell-phone calls don't cut out, GPS devices receive signals, and '90s jock jams aren't interrupted by fuzzy radio reception.
John F. Hogan Jr. was a consistent man. He had been clocking in to the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company’s corporate office in Akron each day for more than 25 years, learning the ins and outs of its tires. Then, in 1984, he made a slight change. He decided to move to Virginia, open Hogan & Sons Goodyear, and share his knowledge of Goodyear’s tires there. Since then, his business has grown right along with his family—there are now eight locations and many more Hogans. All of the full-service automotive shops have complimentary shuttles and, of course, Goodyear tires. The full-service auto repair shop is staffed by continually trained ASE-certified technicians, who swap out motor oil, realign wheels, inspect brakes, and teach air-conditioning units how to whistle during maintenance and repair services. They service all makes and models and include a 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty on all their work.
AAA-approved and bustling with ASE-certified technicians, Dulles Shell Service Center mends domestic and foreign cars with an array of repair and maintenance services bolstered by computerized diagnostic technology.

The state-certified emissions repair facility also administers safety and emissions inspections to keep vehicles road-safe and smog at a minimum. During repairs that require overnight stays, the facility's complimentary shuttle service whisks auto owners to workplaces, homes, or makeout points within a 3-mile radius of the shop.
