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.
Happy Car Express Wash revives dingy roadsters with three-minute, high-pressure baths in automatic car-wash bays. Under the guidance of helpful attendants, customers steer vehicles into wide washing stations for a Hip & Happy bath complete with triple-foam polish, underbody scrub, and a stylish up-do. As customers sit in the dry comfort of their car, jets of pressurized water target caked-on grime on the car exterior, and a glaze of tire shine brings out each road donut's glossy midnight sheen and helps prevent cracking, fading, and hardening of the treaded rubber. After a windy pass under turbo dryers, autos can cruise over to one of 12 complimentary DIY vacuuming stations to cleanse interiors of crumbs before they spontaneously generate back into cognizant PB&Js.

The mobile technicians at Impressions Auto Detailing pick up automotive chariots, scour them from the inside out, and return them to their owners within five hours. The transport purging begins when technicians lovingly wash, dry, and wax car shells by hand and remove bugs and tar along the way. While windows relish a thorough cleansing, technicians vacuum interiors and shampoo carpets. Technicians also specialize in fabric protection, which guards against stains from spills and accidents, and pet hair and odor removal, which guards against awkward moments with the carpool’s musk ox. Impressions Auto Detailing accepts new appointments at 8 a.m. and at 1 p.m., Monday–Saturday. If inclement weather conditions arise, technicians will reschedule at the earliest possible date.
In L-Japan Automotive Services’ spacious garage, technicians straddle both sides of the Pacific. Their services, which range from standard oil changes to engine repair, cater to the intricacies of cars built by the major Japanese and American manufacturers, including Ford, Toyota, Honda, Chrysler, and Infiniti. They keep wheels rolling with factory-recommended parts and pinpoint problems quickly and efficiently with the latest diagnostic equipment. Their bodywork know-how helps mend mangled fenders, and their tire expertise ensures optimal performance once the rubber hits the pavement. Maintenance packages run through run-of-the-mill upkeep, and every oil change comes with a complimentary 29-point inspection.
"Car detailing is an art," according to Small Change's vehicular professionals, and this philosophy is backed up by their fastidious attention to detail and devotion to customer education. On location or at their headquarters, the technicians not only hand wash, wax, vacuum, and squeegee, but consult with customers post-treatment on best practices for keeping autos glossy and clean. Treatments are available individually or in packages, and a budget-conscious membership plan helps customers quit the necessity of getting only a quarter of their vehicle cleaned per visit.
