M Vawter Automotive has been keeping foreign and domestic vehicles road-worthy for more than 24 years. Apart from performing regular maintenance, such as oil changes, the team gets to the heart of vehicular ailments with computer diagnostics. Techs can then revamp electrical systems, put spring back into struts, and repair engines, backing up many of their services with a nationwide warranty.
Detail to the Xtreme’s fastidious technicians work to detail cars, SUVs, boats, and RVs. They welcome vehicles to their locations for detailing but will also travel and pamper automobiles onsite. They clean exterior and interior components and carefully clean and dress wheels.
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. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car: it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. 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 and electrical system maintenance, among others. 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 ASE-certified techs at Automotive Service Group (ASG) coddle cars with fresh oil, filters, and visual inspections. After draining dingy, contaminated oil, techs replenish automotive arteries with up to 5 quarts of Valvoline conventional oil. Mechanics also swap out clogged oil filters for fresh lube sieves. Roadweary wagons then have their tire pressure and fluid levels checked, and techs top off any skimping solutions before performing a visual inspection and lubing the chassis when applicable.
When Mike's Carwash first opened in 1948, it was one of only 18 carwash businesses in the United States. Today, the family-owned establishment keeps the 65-year-old tradition of gussying up automobiles alive at 42 locations throughout the Midwest. At each location, accommodating staffers stand by to assist customers during the cleaning process. Decked out in cartoon neckties, the cheerful team ushers cars into computer-controlled washers that eschew traditional gear-operated brushes and baseball bats in favor of controlled sprays and soft cloths. After the mixture of eight signature soaps de-grimes surfaces, 200-miles-per-hour gusts of hot air dry vehicles instantly. Mike's also offers specialty coats to give car exteriors and tires additional shine.
Solar Control Window Tinting swathes panes in professional films that diffuse sunlight and maintain even-keeled climates in cars, homes, and offices. Residential and commercial windows don sheer or dense privacy films from brands such as 3M and Piper, which block up to 99% of UV rays, trap warmth in the winter, and block heat in the summer, keeping energy consumption in check and environments comfortable. The coatings also protect art and upholstery from sun damage, and can reduce the number of flying shards should storms or soprano houseguests shatter windows.
Solar Control’s techs apply the same surface savvy to car windows, precision-cutting film to fit individual panes or covering vulnerable auto paint with weather-resistant urethane film. While technicians work on rides at the company's headquarters, drivers can settle into plush couches, peruse satellite TV channels, and join a free WiFi network in the waiting room.
