Boasting more than 90 years of combined auto-body, restoration, and detailing experience, Diamond Auto Spa cleans the crevices of cars with professional care. Diamond's employees can lavish roadsters with a 30-minute wash and wax, whisking vehicles by hand with cleaners that contain wax components and scouring every corner of the car, down to the family of field mice singing show tunes in the wheel well. Available for cars (an $85 value), small SUVs (a $95 value), and large SUVs or trucks (a $105 value), Diamond's mini detail begins with a vacuum of interior carpet and upholstery before scouring the dashboard and center console. Over the course of four hours, Diamond's crack cleaners will hand wash exteriors, tires, and rims, removing insects and tar from lower-body panels and applying cleaning wax for protection.
At Extreme Clean, owner Mike Small welcomes all manner of land and water transportation, including cars, trucks, boats, RVs, and motorcycles, with soap-covered arms. His team of experienced techs hand washes and waxes automotive exoskeletons with Auto Magic car-care products to rid rides of grime and instill more shine than replacing paint with bioluminescent sequins. Drivers can pair a detail package with à la carte services, which address additional aesthetic concerns such as chipped glass, cigarette burns, and discolored carpets.

A family-operated business for more than 35 years, Sun Automotive populates its AAA-approved shops with ASE-certified master technicians who keep cars in proper driving order. During an oil change, vehicles eagerly slurp up a five-quart smoothie of fresh, conventional oil and try on a brand-new filter for size. The technicians also lube up the chassis and top off transmission fluid, radiator coolant, and windshield wiper-fluid before replacing windshield wipers and rotating the tires, which encourages even wear and tear and ensures that tires can live a long, fulfilling life until they retire in a junkyard. In addition, Sun Automotive's staff will examine cars during a 59-point inspection, diagnosing any potential problems and interpreting autos' most troubling dreams. Drivers also receive a free car-wash coupon, which they may redeem at Coburg Road Car Wash or Elite Car Bath.
