An affiliate of Enterprise, WeCar mobilizes its members with short-term rentals of fuel-efficient, hybrid, and plug-in vehicles. For a minimum of one hour, drivers borrow cars for errands or business meetings at an hourly or daily rate that includes gas, basic insurance coverage, and up to 200 miles per use. Upon making a reservation—which can be done 24 hours a day—members retrieve a vehicle from its designated location. Members are expected to keep the car in respectful condition, keeping pets in carriers, not smoking, and using the included gas card to refill tanks once the reach only one-quarter full. Any trips longer than 200 miles incur an additional $0.35 fee per mile, and 24-hour roadside assistance ensures drivers aren't stranded with flat tires, dead batteries, or horns that won't stop honking the Knight Rider theme song. At the end of each trip, the car must be returned on time to its original location.

Royal Gate Dodge introduces drivers to gleaming stables of new and used Chryslers, Dodges, Jeeps, and Rams in Ellisville and Columbia, Illinois. Certified specialists stand ready at both dealerships to fix what ails a sluggish Dodge Avenger or to help a Jeep Patriot Sport remember the preamble to the Constitution. Car owners can drop off their injured autos six days a week at either service center—both are open six days a week, but the Ellisville shop closes later (11 p.m. Monday through Friday). The technicians in Ellisville also provide collision-repair services in a 14,000-square-foot facility equipped with computerized estimating systems, digital imaging, and year-round climate control.
For six decades, Lou Fusz’s savvy mechanicals have revived ailing autos with fresh fluids, tire care, and safety inspections that keep all components running at the same speed. Technicians rehydrate thirsty engines with a full dose of oil and lube (a $30 value). A new filter inoculates cars against oil-borne contaminants and other vehicular viruses, while windshields wipe their brows in relief with newly installed blades (a $34 value). After a team of trusty wheel-wranglers rotates tires to balance tread wear (a $15 value), a thorough safety check scrutinizes two dozen essential elements for signs of trouble, such as cracked casings or failed emissions tests stuffed into the undercarriage.
Wave-Taco's sun-loving bartenders pour libations amid white-sand volleyball courts, a grass patio, and a sizable population of lounge chairs. Dive into a pitcher of Shock Top, a citrusy belgian white brew ($13), or a bucket of aluminum 16-ounce bottles of Budweiser, Bud Light, Bud Light Lime, Bud Select, or Michelob Ultra ($19) as cold as an ice-skating rink on Saturn's outermost ring. Lounge in swim trunks, bikinis, or borrowed hotel robes while sipping Malibu rum buckets, a potent concoction of seven flavors of rum and fruit juices ($13). Wave-Taco hosts live DJs, beach parties, and bikini contests, and it is open from 6 p.m. to midnight Monday-Thursday and from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
Frank Leta Auto Group's professional auto menders keep engines purring and exteriors sparkling with detailing and maintenance packages. During the 20-minute preferred detail, technicians wash down fusty frames and restore tires to their factory-fresh sheen. As cloths wipe-down interior surfaces and windows, vacuums explore nooks and crannies for dust bunnies and raccoons made of old fast-food wrappers. The maintenance package kicks-off as mechanics convince engines to trade-in soiled oil for a fresh batch of lubricant. Staffers then run through a 40-point inspection and rotate tires to help autos' insides run as smoothly as their tires roll. The 45-minute package also features a complimentary executive car wash, which rejuvenates exteriors sullied from regular commutes or irregular commutes through paintball arenas.
