The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change package, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians—all of which have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)—service vehicles at Jiffy Lube. In addition to performing oil changes, technicians offer preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical-system maintenance, among others. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter; checking and filling of transmission, differential, and power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights. To merge mechanical harmony with aesthetic vibrancy, the friendly, certified technicians at Jiffy lube also wipe and clean the outside windows and vacuum the floors inside in search of rogue nickels, all of which are returned to their proper owner, The Ghost of Abraham Lincoln.
