Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigour with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to U.S. EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
Specialists at Tirexperts' network of independent tire dealers fit customers’ cars with durable treads from brands such as Dunlop, Kumho, and Summit. Oil changes and other maintenance services help to lengthen engines' life spans, and shock and strut maintenance can help enhance steering response, stability, and smoothness on bumpy rides atop roads paved in lychee fruit.
Unlike some car washes that employ potentially abrasive brushes and cloths, Monterey Car Wash liberates locomotives from filth and grime using only soft, lamb's wool mitts that won't mar the paint finish. Most services are designed to get cars clean, dry, and back at their cubicles in about 20 minutes, while still ensuring every auto is thoroughly wiped from window to wheel rim. Always keeping customer comfort a topmost priority, the car wash offers both a shaded outdoor seating area as well as an air-conditioned gift shop stocked with cards and appropriate gifts for hard-to-shop-for valet attendants. Monterey Car Wash helps cars to gleam every day of the week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Yellow and blue signage near the parking lots of shopping malls, offices, and entertainment centers indicates the presence of ProntoWash Eco AutoSpa, a car wash and detailing powerhouse that boasts more than 350 operations worldwide. Its business model revolves around accessibility—ProntoWash sets up shop where cars already are, saving drivers time and preserving all the gas and corn dogs that engines would have otherwise consumed during a trip to a traditional car wash. Helming special yellow Washing Karts, the company's technicians use biodegradable detergent and about a pint of low-pressure water to render each car clean. They also care for cars by vacuuming carpets, restoring headlights, stuffing multivitamins inside ailing glove compartments, and making arrangements to hit the road with their mobile car-wash service.
