Performance Plus Quick Lube's team of trained technicians is well-versed in the most common oil myths and uses that knowledge during regular oil changes to transform coughing engines into efficient, long-lasting, high-performance car-hearts. After expunging the contaminated sludge from the engine’s crankcase, the Performance pit crew enlists up to five quarts of Quaker State Enhanced Durability synthetic blend motor oil for a three-month (or 3,000-mile) tour of lubrication duty that eases piston pounding and traps engine dirt in suspended animation. Once they've installed a new oil filter, they'll top off the car's coolant, power steering fluid, and umbrella drink.

Graff Chevrolet kicks out the dirt passengers from cars, trucks, and SUVs of any make and model. Each vehicle’s five- to six-hour renaissance detail begins with an engine-bay bathing to blast away built-up grime. Vehicle exteriors are thoroughly washed and waxed before the doors are opened to treat interiors to a thorough vacuuming, followed by hot-water extraction on carpets and seats. Full transparency is returned to slurpee-splattered windows, and wheels and tires are scrubbed and shined until even chrome accessories genuflect in genuine admiration. Doorjambs are relieved from obstinate mudcakes, and stowaway dust bunnies are removed from the trunk until car and driver are at last joyously reunited.
Fast Eddie's is a family owned and operated business which has been keeping cars clean and well oiled for over 35 years. At each of its 16 locations, skilled technicians use up to five quarts of fresh Valvoline and Castrol oil to replace replace old crude, before topping off fluids conducting 21-point inspections to make sure everything's in working order and that the car isn't hiding any secret tattoos. Fast Eddies also keeps cars looking as good as they run with wash packages that combat dirt and road film with triple coat foam waxes, sealer waxes, and tire cleaners.

Its dedication to Michigan residents have helped earned their facilities top ratings for its car wash and oil change services in many of the communities they service.

In 1907, Guy Garber was introduced to the founder of General Motors. Though cars were still a novelty in much of the country then, Guy soon found himself managing one of the nation's first Buick dealerships. Through the Great Depression and the two world wars, Guy remained in the exhilarating automotive industry, with his family taking over in the 60s and still helming the business today. Today they apply more than a century of accumulated skill with old-fashioned service standards while presiding over the latest Chevrolet models as well as an inventory of preowned vehicles. The car has progressed greatly from the days of wooden wheels and bumper stickers about honor students’ dueling prowess, and Garber's techs have kept with the times. They offer a slew of maintenance and repair services, from oil changes to engine replacements, that extend each vehicle's longevity and help propel the automobile into a smooth-driving future.
