The caring car caressers at the family-owned Russell Fischer car washes primp and pamper every corner of your rig by hand. The up-to-40-minute gold car wash service starts with a thorough hand wash, when skilled sparkling gurus examine every inch of your vehicle's hull and underside for filthy smudges and road backwash. Great care is taken to eliminate any drag-creating buildup that might slow down your land-train and inhibit it from making jumps through time. The triple-polish wax efficiently rig-brightens, a sealer wax preserves your ride's bottom line, an interior fragrance ousts unsavory stenches, and the tire dressing swathes your rims in sparkly confidence. You'll know your car is finished when you look into the fully buffed exterior and see a reflection of your younger self, just like a grown up Peter Pan imagining what his life would have been like had he stayed in Neverland.
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. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, 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.
