Heartland Jiffy Lubes enjoy the benefits of being under the Heartland Automotive Services umbrella, putting them in good company along with more than 435 Jiffy Lubes nationwide that service more than five million customers each year. They specialize in the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change, which comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter and up to 5 quarts of quality motor oil, plus a comprehensive lineup of other vehicle maintenance checkups. Highly trained technicians also perform cosmetic and mechanical services including inspections, emissions testing, transmission service, and counseling for 1960s Corvettes that are going through a mid-life crisis.
To become an ASE-certified technician, one must complete a written test and have at least two years of automotive-service experience. This is common knowledge to the technicians at Jefferson Auto Service North, where each tech has their ASE patch, including owner Steve Fank Sr., who has more than 30 years of experience. Fank and his team perform maintenance and repair services on everything from brakes and batteries to engines and atmospheric reentry shields.
The keys to the open road reside within EagleRider, where a lineup of rentable Harley Davidson motorcycles wait to tear across asphalt on guided or self-piloted trips. These late-model hogs join Vespa scooters as a means for drivers to visit local haunts and terrify local cats on short trips or cover vast swathes of terrain on regional tours that can last up to two weeks and span more than 1,000 miles.
Keith's Auto Repair works hard to earn customers' trust. Their auto techs are not only part of the small, family-owned atmosphere of the shop, but also part of a bigger network of ASE-certified professionals. This certification ensures they have the knowledge to handle any issue that comes up on a range of makes and models. But the technicians aren't the only ones to stand behind their work—the shop is one of the 13,000 NAPA AutoCare Centers across the US that honors the NAPA warranty, which insures every service for 24 months or 24,000 miles, approximately the distance to the mechanic if you cross the globe first.
The technicians at Precision Automotive Clinic stabilize wobbly and worn car gaits with name-brand tires and expert installation. Though prices vary weekly depending on the car and tire, customers can outfit shiny rides with new shoes from Michelin ($144.99–$200.99/tire), GoodYear ($138.01–$164.73/tire), Kelly: $92.35–$97.65/tire), or BF Goodrich ($116.99–$122.99/tire). Proud SUV owners can also don their oversized buggies with tires from GoodYear ($282.62.01–$294.90), BF Goodrich ($174.99–$302.06), and Michelin ($242.99–$272.49/tire), helping to improve their ability to do donuts. Installation typically takes 30-60 minutes, although sometimes tires may need to be ordered overnight; in such cases owners will be able to smoothly cruise away in their newly equipped cars the following day.
Nestled in the heart of historic midtown Mobile, Ashland Midtown Pub catches the eyes of passersby with its pleasant open-air patio before ensnaring them with the irresistible wafting aromas of cheesy breadsticks, roasted garlic, and freshly baked pizzas and calzones. Once inside, guests perch upon cushy barstools, surrounded by colorful canvases and plates of piping-hot lasagna or fillets of ahi tuna and flaky blackened grouper. Diners polish off feasts of po’ boys or basil-and-bacon-crowned pizzas with frosty draft brews at the rustic, knotty-pine bartop. As they sup on meals of upscale pizzeria cuisine, patrons dance to the tunes of live musicians or enjoy the interior's fresh, clean air thanks to the pub's no-smoking and no-rudimentary-steam-engine policies.
