With more than four decades of business stuffed under its hood, House of Mufflers & Brakes keeps rides on the road with an arsenal of automotive services. At seven different locations, expert technicians check on, fix up, and diagnose vehicles of all makes and models, administering everything from engine and air conditioning repairs to belt and hose replacements.
The technicians at Performance Chrysler Jeep Dodge won't turn away any vehicle, regardless of its size or propensity for blaring its horn at strangers. They're trained to not only repair, but also perform routine maintenance on cars, trucks, minivans, and SUVs. So whether cars need a quick oil change, tire rotation, or complete detailing, the staff quickly tackles the task. If work takes more than a few hours, customers can take advantage of shuttle services and rental cars.
At Tuffy's, motor-vehicle caregivers spruce up patrons' horseless carriages and prepare them for a new season of dutiful service. After installing a new oil filter, auto artisans remove the old sludgy glop clogging the car's arterial system and replace it with up to five quarts of 5W-30 or 5W-20 conventional motor oil (a $31.99 value; diesel or synthetic oil costs extra). The staff will also rotate tires to prepare four-wheeled wonders for safe gliding (a $12 value) and perform an inspection to make sure air-conditioning systems are functioning properly to bring riders to the brink of coolness faster than Fonzie’s leather jacket ($9.99). Finally, a pair of fresh wiper blades (up to 22")—grown locally by organic-blade farmers—supplants worn-out window-rubbers ($22) and a specialist conducts an extensive 41-point maintenance inspection.
Valvoline Instant Oil Change was created in 1986 and is the second largest quick-lube chain in the United States.

In 1979, at the age of 19, Peter Fink opened the first Certified Transmission in an abandoned gas station. He envisioned a business that would remanufacture, rather than rebuild, transmissions and Barbie Corvettes. Today, the company has grown to include 15 retail stores in four states and more than 400 employees. ASE-certified technicians, who must complete a 13-week training program before they can work by themselves, hand-disassemble transmissions and check each part, re-machining or replacing any parts not up to factory-new standards. Ongoing education keeps technicians’ skills up-to-date and sharper than Henry Ford's stainless-steel tongue. In a 2011 article in Manufacturing Today, Fink attributed his success to high quality standards and good business practices. These standards have not gone unnoticed; in 2005, the Omaha Chamber of Commerce presented Certified Transmission with an Excellence in Business award. Certified Transmission backs their work with an extensive warrantee.
The full-service staff at Grease Monkey trains in house to ensure uniformity in services performed at more than 250 repair centers. Fueled by the latest in motor oil technology, full-service oil changes satisfy both the maintenance requirements of factories and the maternal desires of assembly robots. More in-depth repairs service systems beneath the hood including transmissions, serpentine belts, and radiators in need of flushing. And the shop's headlight restorations and exterior light replacements—offered at select locations—increase nighttime visibility and make it easier for cars to read their manuals before bedtime.
