The recently opened Classic Car Wash treats auto exteriors to the robotic cleansing power of mechanized spray jets and soft swiveled brushes. In less than four minutes, the Express Deluxe exterior wash shepherds vehicles of all shapes, sizes, and esoteric decals through its high-powered clean machine. The dirt-scouring automatons lap on a tickle-free scouring of the car's underbody, a triple-foam shine to the main body, and a clear coat-sealer to the body, giving your road baby the confidence to finally jump the town quarry. Tires and wheels covered in brake dust, tar flecks, or spaghetti sauce are rewarded with a shine and a Wheel Brite application. For a hot, moisture-mopping finale, the power-dry erases any residual rinse from the car's surface. Free vacuums are also available to allow customers to sweep interiors filled with fossilized fries and colonized pen caps.
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 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, battery, and transmission 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.
