Outfitted with backseat TVs, stereos, and divider windows, Status Limousine's fleet of vehicles elegantly eases transportation for travel or leisure. For two hours, guests can populate the Lincoln stretch limo's 10 passenger seats as they journey to and from a fine restaurant or skip from nightspot to nightspot. The bottle of champagne augments arrivals with chilled sips of a spirited beverage and a cork that riders can break up into crumbs to leave a trail back to the limo.
As a franchise of the Valero fuel company, Vinales Valero gases up, cleans, repairs, and maintains import and domestic vehicles with the same trusty, well-trained service it's been doling out for more than 15 years.

Inside, glistening fridges keep frosty beverages refreshingly cool, and rich Pilon coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, and relish-topped hot dogs keep customers pleasantly refueled.

The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle.

In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, brakes, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
