Knowing that car's painted exteriors can be as delicate as a freshly laid Faberge egg, D & L's technicians take the extra effort instead of harsh, automated machines or buffers when bringing ground and water vehicles to a glossy shine.

Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
The technicians at Elite Auto specialize in steam cleaning—employing this method when detailing car exteriors, interiors, and even engines. The team can also beautify exteriors with carnauba wax, or clay bar treatments that neutralize scratches. For interiors, meanwhile, they can go above and beyond regular cleanings to condition leather and banish odors caused by pets or garlic-scented air fresheners. During details, car owners can pass the time comfortably in a well-appointed waiting room equipped with a TV and free Wi-Fi.
