Sam Meineke opened his three-bay muffler shop in 1972 with a single product line, and through time, he and his successors have expanded the business into a complete automotive car-care center. Today, nearly 900 franchise owners operate their locations around the globe, still standing on the firm foundation of Sam's ideal of nursing vehicles back to health at fair prices. Meineke Car Care Centers’ mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigour with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin.

Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
At Bumper to Bumper, experienced electronics and automotive technicians enhance the driving experience with a wide range of car modifications, from iPod docks and stereo upgrades to engine intakes and remote car starters.

Drivers can further customize their rides with HID and LED lights that turn nighttime drives into neon-lit journeys or with customized stereo and sound system that transport computer playlists into their car with crystal clarity.
Elite Auto Glass’s mobile teams of certified technicians restore the good looks and structural integrity of vehicles with speedy on-location windshield repairs.

Techs take these sobering facts to heart as they dutifully replace or mend each customer’s canopy, using only original equipment manufacture or premium, aftermarket glass.
