Bob Johnson Chevrolet's knowledgeable service team and GM-trained mechanics prep for winter with oil changes, tire rotations, inspections, and new sets of tires. The certified service technicians execute the winterization package by appeasing engines' appetites with up to 6 quarts of standard motor oil, installing a new ACDelco oil filter, and lubricating hinges, suspensions, and drivelines. A tire rotation helps prolong rubbery soles' lifespans by balancing the wear and tear treads experience as cars drive on roads or the sides of pyramids. Techs also fill tires with nitrogen—as opposed to standard compressed air—to help to improve fuel efficiency and maintain constant tire pressure. Along with running through a General Motors–certified service checklist, mechanics administer a thorough inspection of fluids, wiper blades, batteries, brake systems, and flux capacitors.
Slick Detail Inc.’s armada of cleaning vans hit the road to scour away grime from car interiors and exteriors at customers’ locations. Its service list describes each visit in-depth, whether it’s power washing exteriors or conditioning interior fabrics. Treatments that come standard with each detailing package include oxidation removal, plastic color-restoration treatments, and paint sealant to keep cars’ colors from bleeding all over the highway.
When David C. Magee and Robert W. August founded LaserWash TouchFree CarWash in 2003, they brought a collective 60 years of corporate experience. David helms the company, and Robert draws on the knowledge he gleaned during his time as the senior vice president of Monro Muffler, making them a veritable Jordan-Pippen combo, though shoe stores might not carry their signature kicks, which would be grease-splattered boots.
At their 13 LaserWash locations, the duo offers car-wash packages facilitated by an automatic LaserWash G5 process. As roadsters progress through a wide bay free of tracks to follow, a series of large signs directs drivers through each step. The LaserWash adjusts its size to fit vehicles up to 7 feet tall by way of ultrasonic and infrared sensors. It also uses less water and electricity than typical car-wash equipment, along with pH-balanced and biodegradable soaps and waxes. After the undercarriage wash removes salt, sand, and damaging contaminants from car bellies, the triple foam polishes paint jobs and the clear-coat protectant shields autos from acid rain, UV rays, and icy glances. Once exteriors are clean, coin-operated vacuums, shampooers, and fragrance misters await car owners, who can scour their car interiors until they sparkle both inside and out.
Founders Ben and Jackie Thompson knew exactly what to do with their passion for automobiles and 20 years of retail and service experience: open up a comprehensive car care and motoring facility that focuses on superior customer service.

They specialize in tire and maintenance service, performing repairs such as rotations, oil changes, and battery replacement with products from reputable brands including Goodyear tires, Interstate batteries, and Castrol, Pennzoil, and Havoline lubricants. In addition to keeping cars as clean and pristine as they day they were plucked from the ground with full detail services, the Grease Lightning staff can even help clients replace a hopelessly soiled vehicle entirely through car and motorcycle sales
