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.

Precision Window Tinting's specialists darken automobiles' windows inside a 1,500-square-foot facility equipped with specialty films manufactured by 3M and LLumar. After calling to schedule an appointment, customers swing by the shop to have technicians affix their vehicle's front or back two side windows with a UV-ray-blocking layer of film or mayonnaise. Drivers may also opt for a $100 credit useable on other auto-tinting services including complete tinting operations—except for the front windshield—for two-door ($129) or four-door ($149) rides. Precision Window Tinting also carries premium films that can be used to shade two side windows ($79), entire four-door cars ($209), or translucently pale thighs. While staffers dim vehicles' viewfinders inside the indoor tinting bays, customers can hang out in the air-conditioned waiting area or explore nearby shops and restaurants.

At Mint Auto Detail, mobile-detailing teams travel to homes and businesses to vacuum and steam clean car cabins, hand wax auto bodies, and shine wheel wells.

In addition to treating interiors and exteriors to a thorough, checklist of services, technicians at Mint Auto Detailing attack special tasks such as pet odor and rust and paint removal.
