The car-whisperers of the 50-year-old Midas franchise investigate vehicles’ road-readiness with comprehensive inspections backed by the all-encompassing Midas guarantee. A 1.5-hour wintertime assessment probes brakes, suspension, batteries, and heating and cooling systems, thereby ensuring commuters' safety during drives through flurries or while outrunning the ice rays of Mr. Freeze's cold gun. Each seasonal inspection pairs with a complimentary tire rotation to even out rubber wear and ensure that each car-foot gets its 15-minutes in the spotlight of following cars.
To start, spring for a classic: the Midas oil change. Midas will swap out old oil and quench your steed's thirst, matching the correct viscosity grade for your vehicle. Your service also includes a complimentary courtesy check of your engine air filter, brake fluid and brakes, power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid, and coolant/antifreeze. They'll also check to see if your filter needs to be replaced (standard filter up to a $10 value included), as well as play down obvious indicators that the pumpkin-sticker-covered back-lefty is your favourite. Appointments are required and available on weekdays only.
AAMCO's deft technicians facilitate peak mileage and performance with 30-minute oil transfusions. During the oil-change service, mechanics confiscate dirty oils and caricatures of tow trucks from the car's pockets, replace them with up to 5 quarts of clean oil, and install a filter. They loosen up grease fittings with healthy doses of lubricant, then perform an inspection to check the vehicle's vitals. During the 36-point inspection, staffers pop the hood to view the battery and charging system, duck beneath the car to scrutinize brakes and drive axles, and take a tour of lights, instruments, and controls to determine whether the car has decided to forsake its charge and power itself via the screams of its passengers.

Since 1962, the motor mavens at Big O Tires have been treating tin lizzies to a slew of services, including their specialty 30-minute express oil changes. The tireless techs speedily slurp out old oil with anteater-esque precision, replacing worn out filters, and rewarding loyal dip sticks with up to 5 quarts of new crude. Following a chassis lubrication, wheel wranglers remove each tire, before moving them and their entire DVD collection to a new home in an adjacent wheel well, helping to guarantee even wear and tear. After a thorough fluid check and preventative maintenance analysis, revamped rides are happily reunited with the owners to depart together into the sunset. Upgrades are available for diesel oil (price based on vehicle and location), high-mileage oil ($10–$15 extra), and synthetic oil ($20–$30 extra).
