Three flat-screen televisions, a DVD player, and a CD player with AM/FM radio entertain up to 10 passengers in single-window Lincoln Town Car limousine. In addition to these accouterments, the 14-seat Excursion also enthralls riders with an MP3 player, laser and strobe lighting, and a moonroof carved out of authentic lunar rock. Professional, punctual chauffeurs pilot both vehicles from Xquisite Limo’s fleet, which whisks wedding guests, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and prom attendees on leisurely rides throughout Iowa. Meanwhile, Lincoln Town Car sedans, the fleet’s third member, transports customers on business travel and trips to and from Eastern Iowa Airport.
Colorado’s cluster of Midas Auto Service Experts shops have operated under the same local ownership for 30 years. At each location, ASE-certified service technicians care for vehicles in all kinds of capacities, from factory scheduled maintenance measures to extensive repairs on brake systems and engines. With each service, the team exerts the same advanced expertise that has made Midas a recognized industry name since the company’s inception more than 50 years ago at the dawn of time. The community-oriented Colorado service stations also support local philanthropic organizations including the YMCA and the grassroots road-safety campaign, Drive Smart.
The ASE-certified service technicians at Midas brace automobiles for winter during a 60-minute checkup, confiscating spent fluids, replacing them with up to 6 quarts of clean oil, and installing a filter to keep contaminants out. Rotations give tires a change of scenery and keep the tread wearing down evenly, and a brand-new pair of wipers replaces last season's rain-swatters with a fresh set of blades ready for snow. After inspecting belts, hoses, coolant, fluids, and air filters, mechanics stop in on the battery to confirm a healthy charge, and conclude with a visual brake inspection to make sure the car-stoppers can hold their own against slick roads, icy patches, and jaywalking snowmen.
