Luxury is the name of the game at Quality Auto Reconditioning, and that mantra isn't limited to the exclusive 24k gold-plating service. The meticulous staff delivers custom detailings that delve into whitewalls and dashboard vents, with à la carte services that include headlight repair. Tarnished Lexus rims gleam anew after Quality's wheel restoration, and a Cadillac's cracked leather seats revert back to a smoothed state after an intensive interior repair—though Quality's technicians treat all makes and models with the same care they would a Fabergé Ferrari. The vast shop can turn out eight details in a day, and Glenview residents can take advantage of a complimentary drop-off service while the techs care for their car.
With acclaimed products and skillful attention to detail, the team of expert automotive artists at Nature's Hand Car Wash carefully purges, polishes, and pampers rides. The main event of the exterior detail is the application of Meguiar's Synthetic Sealant 2.0—a polymer-paint sealant—to lock in car color and protect paint from sliding off during family drag-race competitions. Wheel whisperers also lovingly lave tires back to their original asphalt-accessorizing black hue, and they polish trim and windows until they're free of spots, streaks, and "Kick Me" signs mischievously affixed by jealous bicycles.
With more than 175 locations nationwide and more than 35 years in the business, Car-X Tire & Auto has earned itself a prime spot in the parking garage of quality car care and customer service. Skilled mechanics prep road wagons for tough winters by replacing busted-up sludge with a fresh batch of up to 5 quarts of multigrade oil. Auto doctors also fix up rides with new windshield wipers (up to 24” in length) and tire rotations that ensure snug stops in case of icy patches or drag races against reindeer. During the battery and charging-system check, technicians carefully examine autos to make sure they'll be ready to start up on command. This service runs about 60 minutes long and wraps up with a full-vehicle courtesy inspection that ensures essential components, including tires, brakes, and suspension systems, are healthy enough to cruise the open road without requiring training wheels or being pulled by a retired racehorse.
