The technicians at Justin’s Car Wash Center don’t stop caring for cars after they’ve scrubbed windows and chassis clean during an extensive interior and exterior wash. They also journey under the hood ornament for a premium oil change, after which they complete a safety check and top off all fluids. Other automotive services keep engines running strong as the techs flush out old and expired fluids and measure exhaust pipes' CO2 and designer-perfume emissions in state smog checks. Matching interior excellence to exterior beauty, Justin’s Car Wash Center diligently details rims, carpets, and engines with three packages and express, à la carte services.

As vehicles receive vital care in the garage, clients travel to work or home via a complimentary shuttle service, or make friends with the WiFi in the waiting room until their ride is returned to them, often with a complimentary wash.

Don and Rick Wood, owners of Cooks Collision, can trace their auto-repair roots back to the 1930s. Their grandfather, Clyde, built cars for Ford Motor Company and later started his own body shop, where he passed his knowledge on to his son, Bob. After working as a body-shop manager for Saltnes Volkswagen, Bob took out a mortgage against his family home and purchased Cooks Auto Body, fulfilling his dream of starting his own shop?just like his dad. Today, Don and Rick carry on the family legacy with more than 30 locations, dozens of employees, and one magical vintage racecar. Their ASE-certified mechanics are factory-certified by Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Jaguar, and Volvo, and they repair around 30,000 cars each year.
