Car-X Auto Service stirs wagons out of winter's hibernation with an array of alleviating automotive services. Pour your car a refreshing 5-quart glass of oil change ($19.99, with synthetic or semi-synthetic oils available at an additional charge), revolve your ride's rubbers with a tire rotation ($16), and switch blades with windshield-wiper replacements ($18 for wiper blades up to 24 inches). Keep your car cool for the family's annual summer vacation to the Gobi with an air-conditioning check ($49.95), a battery and charging-system check, and a full-vehicle courtesy inspection, included at no charge.

With more than 175 locations nationwide and more than 35 years in the business, Car-X Tire & Auto has earned itself a prime spot in the parking garage of quality car care and customer service. Skilled mechanics prep road wagons for tough winters by replacing busted-up sludge with a fresh batch of up to 5 quarts of multigrade oil. Auto doctors also fix up rides with new windshield wipers (up to 24” in length) and tire rotations that ensure snug stops in case of icy patches or drag races against reindeer. During the battery and charging-system check, technicians carefully examine autos to make sure they'll be ready to start up on command. This service runs about 60 minutes long and wraps up with a full-vehicle courtesy inspection that ensures essential components, including tires, brakes, and suspension systems, are healthy enough to cruise the open road without requiring training wheels or being pulled by a retired racehorse.
One day in 1946, Bob Fuller returned home from military service to resume civilian life. By the time the sun had set, he was a business owner. The original location of Fuller's Carwash & Detail Centers, which he claimed with a handshake and a hip twist on that day more than 60 years ago, now serves as the flagship shop, the anchor for a business that has branched out to 11 more locations. Seven days a week, washers lavish cars with soap and special treatment, and detailing services help cars to rediscover their showroom shines. Some locations offer lube and auto centers, with staff technicians ready to remedy mechanical problems and translate esoteric owners' manuals, and convenience stores that stock snacks for drivers and fuel to keep their vehicles humming along as happily as The Little Engine That Couldn't, But Still Stayed Optimistic.
