The hard-working car washers at Staten Island Auto Bath restore glowing complexions to autos while protecting tires and paint from damage. Using high-pressure machines, they evict grime from jalopies and add protective coats of wax, tire-shielding treatments, and a thick pair of long underwear to restore showroom shines. Air compressors dry all visiting vehicles, which roll in and out from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday?Saturday, closing at 4:30 p.m. on Sundays.
Forgoing the cold, unthinking arms of a mechanized tunnel, Quality Car Care entrusts vehicles to the gentle contact of human hands. The brush-free facility delicately cleans and conditions vehicles using gentle Blue Coral soaps.

Depending on the day of the week, Quality Car Care extends a discount to women, senior citizens, and Wienermobile drivers.
Finishing Touch Automobile Detailing’s technicians cleanse cars of road grime with services designed to keep their environmental impact as low as possible.

Brake-O-Rama began as one location in 1949 but now boasts 14 service centers speckled across the East Coast. Together these automotive hospitals work as a force, repairing and maintaining domestic and imported vehicles of virtually any make and model. Before sourcing spare parts from the company's private warehouses, Brake-O-Rama's ASE-certified technicians thoroughly analyze vehicles with advanced diagnostic technology that includes four-wheel computerized alignment systems, electron microscopes that scan for chipped paint finishes, and magnifying glasses ever in search for clues to Professor Plum's murder. Meanwhile, Firestone, Goodyear, and Michelin tires fill the supply closets, allowing the patrons to tighten their grip on the asphalt before a cross-country trip.
Inside their drive-thru wash and bays, KC’s Car Wash’s mitten-wearing technicians scrub away vehicular dirt without the scratches and streaks associated with robotic washes. Glistening exteriors get a cherry on top with add-on premiums, including road-reflecting tire treatments with silicone or Armor All. The technicians also take their shop beyond its eponymous service with their signature 10-minute oil changes powered by premium Quaker State lube. Full weekend hours help techs squeeze into even the tightest schedules, and an onsite convenience store accessorizes autos with items such as air fresheners, steering-wheel covers, and refills for the dashboard slushie dispenser.
