The family behind Fletcher's Tire & Auto Service opened their first shop more than four decades ago. Today, they operate more than 30 locations scattered throughout Arizona, where they work to provide automobiles and their owners with expert repairs and preventive maintenance. Technicians keep cars safely running, stopping, and creeping slowly past ex-girlfriends' houses with regular maintenance services such as oil changes, alignments, and air filter replacement. Oil changes come with a battery test and a tire rotation to ensure that tires wear evenly, and most services are backed by warranties that start at 12 months and 12,000 miles. More than 15 brands of tires get paired with appropriate chariots thanks to a convenient online tire-size guide, and computerized alignment services help improve gas mileage and safety.
Big O Tires outfits wheels with tires from Michelin, Goodyear and other trusted brands, all backed by a three-year warranty and a lifetime of rotations. The retailer has been in the road-ready rubber trade since 1962, when it began as a single co-op; over the past five decades, it has blossomed into a network of more than 500 locations, spanning 21 states. The shops’ ASE-certified technicians not only specialize in tires, but also tend autos with a comprehensive array of repair and maintenance services. They deftly change oil, replace brakes, and meticulously administer free 22-point safety inspections, which ensure that headlights work and that wiper blades aren’t actually sleeping rattlesnakes.
Colorado’s cluster of Midas Auto Service Experts shops have operated under the same local ownership for 30 years. At each location, ASE-certified service technicians care for vehicles in all kinds of capacities, from factory scheduled maintenance measures to extensive repairs on brake systems and engines. With each service, the team exerts the same advanced expertise that has made Midas a recognized industry name since the company’s inception more than 50 years ago at the dawn of time. The community-oriented Colorado service stations also support local philanthropic organizations including the YMCA and the grassroots road-safety campaign, Drive Smart.
Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box filter; a checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights.
At Auto Medics, a full-service automotive repair and maintenance shop, ASE-certified technicians ensure vehicle longevity with an automotive lifespan's worth of oil changes. Staffers replace stale lubricant with up to five quarts of synthetic-blend Kendall motor oil every three months or 3,000 miles as long as vehicles live. While they've got the car up on the lift, they'll lube up any lubeable joints; a safety check is also included to verify that the vehicle's belts, hoses, lights, and fluid reservoirs are all cooperating to keep the car from suffering a mechanical breakdown.

Riders leave baby-sized carbon footprints in the white sands of the French Riviera, jet-setting on the dichromatic, coastal colors of the Saint-Tropez at 89+ miles to the gallon, and siesta-ing bulls, exhausted from running, dream of tooling around on the hoof-less, automatic transmission Pamplona. Buddy Italia’s romantic accent adds a renaissance flare to pizza deliveries with its whitewall tires and air-cooled engine, inspiring jealous stares from four-wheeled behemoths and overcrowded unicycles.
