Behind Easy Go Auto’s tidy crimson and white façade, teams of licensed technicians are hard at work, dutifully restoring and maintaining the vital systems of all makes and models of imported or domestic vehicles. Mechanics prevent wear, tear, and unexpected breakdowns with routine oil changes and tire rotations, while AC specialists maintain comfortable cabin temperatures with thorough inspections and repairs of hoses, lines, evaporators, compressors, and the cursed snowball that makes everything cold. Complimentary towing services within a 10-mile radius of the shop safely tote vehicles with unresponsive engines or ailing tires.
Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corp., Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto accessory and detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations in 30 countries. Performing everything from window tinting and professional detailing to electronics installation, Ziebart's experienced staff cares for cars with high-end products, including seasonal paint protectant and the company’s renowned rust inhibitors. To protect cars inside and out, Ziebart technicians also install accouterments such as alarm systems to thwart thieves and sunroofs to thwart unflattering film negatives from processing correctly (services may vary by location).
Lothrop Parking provides spaces for vehicles to rest their weary wheels for a while. One of Henry Ford Hospital's New Center skyways hovers above the entrance to this covered parking garage, which offers daily and monthly rates for car, truck, and SUV owners to leave their craft in a secure location. And it's just a few blocks northwest of the Amtrak station, putting travelers within easy walking or hopscotching distance of their waiting train.
Classic Auto Wash provides thorough washes to leave each horseless carriage shiny and spotless. The premium Rain-X wash includes a thorough exterior rubdown that eliminates residue and grime while washing every car surface, from the overcarriage to the undercarriage with 100% fresh water. Once washed, the vehicle is then coated with a clear-coat protectant, a Teflon bond, and a rust inhibitor, and the special Rain-X finish protects cars from all the elements: water, wind, and strontium. Classic Auto Wash’s patent-pending tire-shiner machine makes sure that even the wheels are sparkling once they hit the notoriously materialistic road, and its patented hot-air Hurricane drying system employs 165 horsepower and 3 million BTUs of heat to make sure that water spots are completely eliminated.
Cars roll in cruddy and roll out gleaming at Dean’s Auto Shine, which anchors its nearly 30-year legacy on expert hand washes and thorough detailing services.

Custom-tailored detailing caters to a car’s interior and exterior, prolonging the life of autos in conjunction with rustproofing services and the removal of paint oxidation and paint swirls. Courtesy pick-up and delivery of autos is available to and from a customer’s home, place of work, or demolition derby.
