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, 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 who 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 perform preventative services such as air-filtration, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. 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.
Christian Brothers Automotive's skilled auto technicians wave vehicles into the work bays for an array of maintenance and repair services. Among their many talents, they can replace oil filters, rotate tires, fix brakes, and swap dead batteries with newer, tastier batteries. After auto owners drive their revamped rides away, the staff recycles the used batteries, tires, and pieces of scrap metal. Striving for customer comfort, the shop offers complimentary courtesy inspections and shuttle services and furnishes the wood floors of its waiting area with leather couches and a rug.
Since starting in 1983, A Plus Transmission Specialist has grown to become a full-service transmission shop with multiple locations around Texas. Each address employs a team of technicians who can diagnose all sorts of transmission problems with the help of diagnostic equipment, which can hunt out issues in the electronic control systems found in most modern vehicles and time-traveling Model Ts. Once the mechanics have determined the issue (the drivetrain or the transmission fluid, for example), they can repair it with parts that meet or exceed the parameters put in place by the original equipment manufacturer.
Originally run out of one pickup truck, Houston Auto Glass & Windshield Replacement has spent nearly two decades growing a fleet of mobile technicians big enough to serve customers throughout Dallas and Houston. The techs swap out windshields lacerated with cracks and replace them with shiny new units, allowing drivers to easily see when the road ahead is actually their neighbor's swimming pool. Urethane adhesives and quality sealant join a steadfast warranty to keep new panes in place. The glass gurus also repair rock chips and tackle other services such as painting and body repair.
The Peveto family's name became synonymous with stopping power when John Peveto II opened his first Brake Check shop in 1968. More than 40 years and 40 shops later, the family still helps cars stop (and go) with brake-pad inspections, wheel alignments, battery replacements, and oil changes. With convenience in mind, each shop opens its work bays seven days a week, offers online appointments, and backs up several of their services with lifetime warranties that are then backed up by other even more muscular warranties.:m]]
Executive Motorsports’ MECP-certified technicians have been sprucing up cars inside and out for more than 25 years. Using digital computer cutting technology, they apply snug tint films to the windows of cars and SUVs to block out heat and UV rays and give privacy to drivers and their valuables. Further protection and aesthetic upgrades come in the form of Clear Bra paint protection applications and custom creations. The technicians don’t just concern themselves with vehicular exteriors, though; they also sell and install stereo systems, alarms, and radar detectors, and customize speaker enclosures. iPod integration installations allow drivers to access their digital music library while driving instead of having to rely on CDs or hitchhiking a capella groups.
