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 the standard brake service 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, factory maintenance services, batteries, belt replacement, and fluid services.
With steady wrenches and minds crammed with vehicular know-how, the expert technicians at Napleton Chrysler Jeep Dodge make quick work of threats to automotive health. A four-pack of oil and filter changes means an upstanding driver or amorous crash-test dummy can ensure the insides of each engine in the driveway stay appropriately lubricated with the fresh fluid necessary for optimal combustion. Each appointment lasts half an hour or less, allowing customers just enough time to take a catnap or daydream about flipping through the most recent issue of Car and Driver in the commodious lounge area.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube 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, battery, and transmission 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.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Our oil changes are our signature service. We do a courtesy 25-point inspection that will cover safety components. Also, we top off fluids, rotate tires, and perform a visual brake inspection.
Sometimes it's all about the little things in life. What supplemental courtesies do you include with your main services to leave clients with a smile on their face?
We can drop clients off at work, if they work within 10 miles of our shop, and pick them up during business hours if they have no one else to help them out. We also have a kids room where youngsters can play while the family car is being serviced.
Over the course of 34 years, the smiling staffers at Express Oil Change and Service Center have learned that customers just want their oil changed fast. Instead of selling extra parts out of an oversized trench coat, staffers work quickly and efficiently to give cars what they crave—quarts of thick, black oil in the blink of an eye without an appointment. Each procedure lasts approximately 10 minutes, during which mechanics will replace the vehicle's oil and inspect its innards for problems. The process is so quick that customers can even wait inside their own vehicles while it occurs, much like a drive-thru car wash or drive-thru dentist appointment.
Along with quick and efficient oil changes, Express Oil Change and Service Center tends to other automotive needs such as tire rotation and balance, brake inspection and service, fuel-system cleaning, engine diagnostic, and general repair.
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.
