Kwik Kar Wash Flower Mound’s business-class wash tidies cars' insides, outsides, and undersides in about 25 minutes. Soft cloths lick mud pies and insect pâtés from the car's shell, leaving a generous triple-polish tip. After an invigorating steering-wheel scrub, the auto dons a clear-coat shield to protect paint from color-fading sun rays and innocence-stealing key scratches. A Rain-X treatment keeps drivers safe by repelling rain and sleet, which can greatly hinder visibility. The service concludes with a glossy tire dressing, a hint of car cologne, and a diploma stamped with a shiny gold star.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle.

More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.

The staff can also pair drivers with a car vacuum and fragrance islands to top off cleanings, and the collocated gas station helps both customers and vehicles refuel.
