Belmont Car Wash pampers petrol steeds with its auto-gleaming services and eco-friendly car-care products. Cars sullied from extended treks through town pudding fields can shed dirtying debris with the deluxe car wash, which smothers buggies in a sudsy coat of Envirosoft foam body wash and seals in the shine with a triple-polish wax. Your autobeast's rubber road slippers also receive a rejuvenating Sonic wheel-and-tire cleanse before they're dressed to the quads in a hi-gloss tire dressing. After dappering up the exterior, Belmont's desulliers will tackle the interior, clearing the car's auto nooks and crannies of dirt, debris, and remnants of Lilliputian parades and depositing a fragrant spritz of air freshener to attract suitable mates. Those looking for a quick cleaning trip can opt for the full-service wash, which keeps cars glinty and glamorous with a body wash, tire cleaning, and scrub down.
With the standard five-quart oil change, a Clovis-Ashlan Express Lube mechanic will make sure your car is emptied of its dirty, unwanted oil, replacing it with new, clean lubricant. The Automotive Service Excellence–certified staff will go the extra kilometer, not only changing the oil and oil filter but also topping off fluids and giving a thorough inspection of the belts, hoses, wiper blades, thermonuclear landing gear, tires, air pressure, holographic Morgan Freeman–designed navigation system, brakes, and front suspension. In general, automobile owners should make sure to change their oil either every 3,000 miles—or three Vanessa Carlton hit singles in the metric system—or every three to six months.

Dishing out diagnostic prognostication in a pint-sized package, the certified gearsmiths at The Small Car Shop have been keeping autos ambulatory for more than 30 years. Slickify sullen motor parts with a standard oil change, swapping out foul-mouthed crude for up to four, non-synthetic quarts of fresh-faced fluid, along with a newly-minted filter to protect it against contaminants and engine bullies. The Small Car Shop also keeps treads tidy with a tire rotation—a rubbery game of musical chairs that cuts down on undue wear and ensures gripping grooves stay stalwart as long as possible. Each service package also unleashes an exhaustive inspection litany during a rigorous 22-point check, as the jumpsuit sleuths snoop through belts and hoses, hunting for snafus among brakes, cooling systems, batteries, and the increasingly common dashboard deep fryer.
