Ecowash Auto Spa's 35- to 45-minute Gold wash destroys car-clinging debris with an assault of foam agents, wheel blasters, and luster-inducing waxes. After a presoak softens exterior tar and dirt, cleansing foams sweep remaining filth from the shell, clear-coat protectants reinforce the finish, and a tri-foam wax snuggles against the body to protect it from wrecking ball high-fives. Meanwhile, wheel blasters dispel puddle scum from the car's rollers, and Wheel Brite dresses them up for joy rides on newly paved roads. As a rust inhibitor armors the underbody to defy oxidation, weather-guard treatments help to defend the driver from poor visibility or skydiving meteorologists. Technicians also head inside the auto, scouring surfaces with a vacuum, outfitting the dash, console, and door panels in dressing, wiping down doorjambs, and cleaning the windows from the inside out.
During the oil change, skilled mechanics infuse engines with a fresh batch of synthetic-blend motor oil. They also run through a 52-point inspection to check vehicular beasts for potential automotive problems or secretive underbellybutton rings. Drivers may also opt for a tire-maintenance package, which steadies the hooves of a trusted steel steed with a tire rotation and four-wheel balance. Certified as a green station by California's Department of Toxic Substances Control, Bruce Scher's Goodyear implements a number of eco-friendly practices, such as recycling fluids and filters, using water-based cleaners, and replacing electric lift bays with retired bodybuilders.
Eco-Tint's experienced technicians deftly tint car windows with Llumar ATC films precisely fit with computerized cutting equipment. The stylish films, which are available in a wide spectrum of shades from 5% and up, can block up to 99% of UV rays, truncate up to 60% of incoming heat, and lend drivers the privacy to act out radio commercials. During the two-hour service, a digital cutting machine produces form-fitting window films for two, five, or seven windows; then, agile technicians meticulously line the window's interior, leaving no traces of gaps, splices, or seams. Windows can be rolled down immediately after tinting. Llumar films are all backed by a lifetime manufacturer warranty. During the service, customers can relax in Eco-Tint's waiting lounge and sip on free soda, watch satellite TV, or send apology e-mails to the jilted sun using the complimentary WiFi.

From more than 350 facilities in six countries, Precision Tune Auto Care has spent the last three decades keeping more than 2.5 million vehicles on the road with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services. Professionally trained mechanics lube engines with signature precision oil changes, rotate tires to ensure even tread wear, repair busted brakes, and test spark plugs to safeguard against ignition failure during dramatic drive-thru getaways.

ASE-certified technicians at Smitty's Midas charge up sluggish autos with standard- and synthetic-oil-infused pep. Engine experts drain sludgy, piston-suffocating lube and replace it with five quarts of either 5W-30 standard oil or 5W-20 or 5W-30 synthetic oil before installing a new standard filter and inspecting the brake fluid, coolant, and the vehicle's overall career-satisfaction level. Technicians also check the battery, air filter, belts, and hoses for problems, and then give cars a tire rotation, which promotes smoother driving, prolongs tire life, and distributes the tread wear across the wheels as evenly as a barbershop quartet splitting a four-piece pizza. Patrons looking to further facilitate repairs or maintenance will receive $10 off every $100 they spend on additional auto services.
