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.

Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
Town East Ford's service center employs a team of factory-trained technicians ready to keep vehicles of all makes and models running and rolling smoothly. The 60-minute service begins with an oil change, where mechanics convince engines to spit out their soiled crude and gulp a fresh batch of conventional motor oil. While autos hang in the air atop a lift bay, staffers rotate tires to balance tread-wear and run through a multipoint inspection to check for potential issues or accumulations of orange cones in the wheel wells. A complimentary car wash cleanses exteriors of built-up dirt and grime, sending cars on their way with a factory-fresh finish. As customers wait to be reunited with their four-wheeled babies, they can run errands with the help of Town East Ford's courtesy shuttle or practice advanced thumb-wrestling moves on their nondominant hand.

Meineke Car Care Center's mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
