Backed by the Meineke name, an industry presence since Sam Meineke opened his first shop in 1972, each Meineke Car Care Center franchise offers a lengthy list of maintenance and repair services performed at the hands of ASE-certified mechanics. Now operated by the same owners as the Fowler Street location, the Cape Coral outpost employs these experienced grease monkeys to keep cars running smoothly and safely on all four of their hairless legs, treating auto bodies to everything from oil changes to safety inspections.
As Super-Lube's name suggests, its signature service is the oil change. Technicians at its more than 50 locations lubricate engines with up to five quarts of premium oil. The comprehensive service, which requires no appointment, also comes with a 20-point maintenance check, and a free fluid top-off between changes. The technicians' handiwork extends beyond oil changes, too?they can change radiator fluid, swap out fuel filters, and replace broken windshield wiper blades.
Auto Sound has helped automobiles shun sunrays for more than 19 years. A team of expert tintmasters smooth Suntek film onto each window, which keeps interiors cool while blocking 99% of UV rays and 98% of sidelong glances from hood ornaments. Auto Sound's crew removes preexisting glass tints for an additional $15 per window, and extra fees may apply for porthole darkening on luxury and foreign cars. Optional tinting upgrades ($30/window) can further increase cars' newfound privacy to hide even the most bedazzled steering-wheel cover.
John Meyer inherited his love of cars from his father, Bill, who started repairing cars in a Pittsburgh service station in 1955. Today, in his Cape Coral shop, the younger Meyer and his team of mechanics care for cars of all kinds during tune-ups, safety checks, tire services, and other routine-maintenance procedures. The shop relies on top manufacturers, such as Michelin, Firestone, and Dunlop, to perform all of its services.
Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
