Auto Fix draws on their parent company's deep wells of experienced, ASE-certified technicians to staff their seven garages in Illinois and Indiana. The full-service shops keep cars running with oil changes and thorough vehicle check ups, and they routinely flush power steering, radiator, and transmission fluids. Having spent years working with vehicles, Auto Fix technicians can repair any part of the car from the suspension to the fuel system. They're confident in their repairs as well, offering any client a 12-month or 12,000-mile guarantee on each fix. The team also renders problem-precluding services such as full safety inspections, shocks and struts service, and tire rotation—which does not mean enforcing who’s up next on the backyard tire swing.
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 team at Forza Customs specializes in car makeovers. They revamp rides with top-of-the-line accessories, ranging from JL Audio and Pioneer soundsystems to shiny new rims and tires. Their remote starter installations prevent clients that no one has to sit in a cold car on a frosty winter morning. The crew takes pride in their handiwork, backing each installation with a quality guarantee, rather than just a promise that the car will remain roughly car-shaped.
Drive & Shine's lengthy wash tunnel scrubs muck and mire from auto frames with eco-friendly soaps and nimble-fingered soft foam wraps. During the 10- to 15-minute service, an underbody wash cleanses the car's road-facing parts, and autos beam like a smiling hologram after being lovingly smothered in applications of clear-coat sealant and foam polish. A layer of Diamond Wax projects the radiant luster of the finish far into the future, and Wheel Brite and tire dressing keep the vehicle's rubber boots looking spick-and-span. To keep the interior looking sharp, technicians climb inside to vacuum dirt, debris, and crumbs from the rugs and seats, beat particles out of mats, scrub windows, and wipe dashes and door jambs with soapy foam wraps. Ten percent of Drive & Shine's proceeds will be donated to United Way, an organization that promotes healthy living and helps humans reach their full potential.
Lynwood Firestone carries Bridgestone, Firestone, and many other major brand tires. Their staff of ASE-certified technicians are capable of returning the smooth, even gait to any car, but they do more than install new sets of tires. In the service department, the technicians tackle an array of automotive issues, reinvigorating engines with Valvoline motor oils, servicing brakes, and repairing everything from faulty transmissions to electrical systems.
