Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
Williams Automotive's motto is "dealership technology at your local garage," a mantra they live up to by only using parts that meet or exceed the standards set by the vehicle's manufacturer. This means turning to renowned brands such as Exide, VGS, and Moog Chassis Parts. But beyond fixing and replacing electrical systems, transmissions, and performing heavy duty repairs, the ASE-certified technicians offer a number of simpler services. These include towing, oil changes, and switching out crummy-tasting tires with delicious sprinkled doughnuts.

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.
