Victory Lane Full Service Car Wash welcomes the chance to revamp dingy four-wheelers of all kinds, from pizza-stained jalopies to rain-splattered roadsters. The Good wash begins with a ride onto the touchless conveyor system, which shuttles your car through high-pressure water and mild detergents without scratching the paint job. After vehicular alchemy turns mud splatters into a luminous shine and nimble-handed attendants towel dry external contours, attendants shift their attention to the interior. A thorough vacuuming removes stray licorice strips and silt deposits from carpets and seat crevasses; then staffers wipe the dashboard clean and expunge interior windows of smudges. Motorists can expect a total wash time of 15–25 minutes, depending on vehicle size and the speed of time.
Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
Grand Prix Car Wash transforms the dirtiest of sedans, SUVs, and convertibles into pristine and well-waxed chariots. Their speedy automated soft-cloth wash banishes the lingering traces of rain, road dirt, or rock salt, and can be complemented with à la carte detailing services such as Scotchgarding or clay-bar treatment. Many of Grand Prix's car-wash packages also carry 24-hour or five-day guarantees, allowing drivers to return for an exterior car wash and hand-dry if they should get caught in a storm or city-wide food fight after their visit.
Bottles of Meguiar's, Rain-X, Black Magic, and Nu Finish line the work bays at Car Pretty, where experienced detailers revamp rides with detailing and hand-wash services. Despite their impressive product arsenal, their supplies come second to their technique; using clay bars, detailers meticulously remove tiny scratches and imperfections from paint, taking care to evict all bird stains and hood-ornament birds' nests. They also take advantage of specially designed Tornador equipment that dislodges embedded dirt from all interior surfaces. While the detailers unleash their cleansing fury on sullied surfaces, guests can lounge in the shop's waiting room.
Whether they’ve just taken a bath in the soft cloth wash tunnel or flung open their doors for a full detail, cars leaving Arlington Car Wash and Detail hit the street with a sparkling clean look. The facility’s tiered car wash packages run the gamut from full service washes to the works double wash, which applies a suite of products such as Rain-X surface protection and Simoniz triple conditioners and tire dressing. Detailers comb through vehicles that need extra attention, coaxing shiny colors from the finish with polish and wax as well as shampooing the seats and carpets until they’re clean enough to build a chemistry lab on top of. Motorists may truck through the wash seven days a week, and can swing by on their birthday and be the beneficiaries of a free platinum wash.
