Delta Sonic Car Wash renews tarnished transportation with an innovative touchless car-wash system that automatically guides vehicles through a tunnel of high-pressure sprays and overhead buffing cloths. The hands-free wash massages mild lotions into paint jobs, leaving vehicles with sparkling, fingerprint-free finishes that are backed by a five-day guarantee. Detailing technicians do get their hands dirty as they make use of more than 100 hours of training to dote on vehicle interiors and exteriors with products from ValuGard, Aquapel, and Blue Coral. The team wields AOCA certification know-how when injecting engines with oil and devising rustproofing treatments that avoid drilling holes or covering corrosion in zit cream.

A A C Auto Clinic's ASE-certified technicians work to keep drivers safely and smoothly rolling across American roadways. During an oil change, mechanics replace motors' used oil with up to 5 quarts of 10W-30 oil, quickly screwing in a new filter when the car's not paying attention. For those who choose the first option, a tire rotation switches wheels around so rubbery soles can take turns being in front and avoid uneven wear and tear. Technicians can also install a new set of wiper blades (up to 21" long), which help drivers see the road while driving through snow, sleet, or Rain Man posters. During the 30–45 minute service, the shop's play area distracts kids as well as adults who are still children at heart.
