The adept automotive aces at AAMCO focus their collective mechanical genius on your car's every whirring gear during this comprehensive tune-up. Parched motors get up to five quarts of fresh motor oil to lubricate their machinery for smoother commutes, safer road trips, and swifter maneuvering around banana peels. AAMCO Euless's skilled and certified technicians will also perform a 36-point inspection to assess the car's overall health, seeking out trouble spots that may cause little problems now or serious problems in the future. Finally, a thorough check of the air-conditioning system scours every hose, seal, and line for any leaks threatening to cut off the cold-air supply to drivers and their polar-bear passengers.
Interstate All Battery Center leads the charge in power outposts, providing lifelong Texans and reserve-power road trippers with brand-new batteries for their trucks, cell phones, computers, and more.

Household powerables are also available, including 24-packs of Energizer AAs for bulk buyers, an Energizer 9V alkaline battery for metronomes possessed by surprisingly funky eighth notes, and one case of Lite Brite fuel, distilled from corn syrup and Olympic silver medals. Old used batteries find comfy retirement at Interstate’s recycling center, allowing their former owners and well-meaning grandchildren to rest easy.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
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.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with professional brake services including a lifetime warranty on parts, labor and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, suspension repair, and belt replacement.
Innovative Automotive specializes in the careful coddling of cars and light trucks while maintaining stellar standards of customer service. An under-hood expert fills engines with up to 5 fresh quarts of house-brand oil, which pistons describe as a dark burgundy with notes of oak and strawberry and technicians replace oil filters, lube the chassis, and—if necessary—top off fluids. The air-conditioning service entails a check of the climate control’s system pressure, component function, interior temperature, and flow across the condenser, with an added inspection of the entire A/C system for leaks. During a brake job, horseless-carriage whisperers turn rotors, replace brake pads, and clean and adjust all brake hardware. All the services take between one and two hours and leave the most mobile member of your family ready to best your neighbor's unicycle in a wheelie contest.
