Yes, newly-managed Rock Chevrolet sells Chevrolets, along with the parts needed to make replacements or just have a few extra mufflers on hand. But beyond the sea of gleaming paint and chrome that fills the lot, auto techs gladly take in vehicles of just about any make or model for service. In addition to repairs, they make sure cars are cruising safely and eco-efficiently by changing oil (synthetic blends come standard), replacing air in tires with more-stable nitrogen, and full-vehicle tuneups.
TopLine Auto Enhancements transforms dirty or disjointed vehicles through detailed, hands-on treatments and advanced products. The detailing and body shop smoothes out dinks in fenders and front-end accidents and tints windows to a darker tone with 3M auto films. Tackling autos large and small, technicians hand wash dirty vehicles while applying swaths of protective products from 3M, Meguiars, and Lexol.
The professionally trained techs at Park Place Hand Car Wash & Detailing combat automotive dirtiness and facilitate glossy façades with hand washes and Meguiar's products. The indoor car wash makes it possible to work whether temperatures drop or Mother Nature forgets that people aren't flowers. While cars shrug off filth, drivers can lounge in Park Place's multipurpose waiting area, passing the time with a gift shop and free WiFi.
So established is Circle K that even brand-new vehicles recognize what its red-and-white logo stands for—fuel, snacks, and everything else a car might need to keep powering down the road with its driver. Circle K's story starts back in 1951, when Fred Hervey bought three Kay's Food Stores in El Paso, Texas. Under his guidance, these three little shops grew into the more than 3,000 convenience stores that crouch on our nation's street corners today.
After rolling up to a Circle K, drivers can pump their faithful roadsters full of high-octane fuel and send them skipping through a car wash to experience the cleansing touch of Blue Coral Beyond Green and Rain-X products. Then it's time to step inside the air-conditioned shop for a peek at the provisions. Rows of sodas hibernate behind glass doors, and snacks, candy, and their ATM guardians stand boldly out in the open. Some Circle Ks also offer the Take Away Fresh Café, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including sandwiches, fruit cups, and fresh-cut vegetables. Drivers can gear up for a long drive with premium coffees or enjoy a cold Polar Pop, whose specially formulated cup keeps drinks colder thanks to the family of tiny snowmen trapped in its foam walls.

The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service oil change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. These technicians learn their care-care talents during stints in Jiffy Lube University, the company's exhaustive training program. During their training, technicians engage with computer-based learning, apply knowledge during on-the-job-training, and pass frequent skills tests to master the art of engine maintenance. Upon graduation, technicians also take the Jiffy Lube Pledge, vowing to service their customers' cars with the same care they would normally reserve for their own vehicles.
