Prior to 1997, car wash technology was limited to a hard-touch method: battering the car with a golf club, soaking it in a vat of rubbing alcohol, and a two-step drying process using hammers, then jack hammers. After Consumer Reports released a condemning study on the effects of hard-touch washes on a car's finish, the American public boycotted car washes and reverted to disposing of their vehicles when they became dirty. But when auto-landfills and auto-barges quickly filled up, the president prayed for a messiah to save us. That messiah has arrived, and its name is the Xpress Wash at Sonic Soft Car Wash, which just so happens to be available at a 51% discount today on Groupon!
Every American child grows up wanting to be an astronaut, a marine biologist, or a moderately successful magician.

John F. Hogan Jr. was a consistent man. He had been clocking in to the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company’s corporate office in Akron each day for more than 25 years, learning the ins and outs of its tires. Then, in 1984, he made a slight change. He decided to move to Virginia, open Hogan & Sons Goodyear, and share his knowledge of Goodyear’s tires there. Since then, his business has grown right along with his family—there are now eight locations and many more Hogans. All of the full-service automotive shops have complimentary shuttles and, of course, Goodyear tires. The full-service auto repair shop is staffed by continually trained ASE-certified technicians, who swap out motor oil, realign wheels, inspect brakes, and teach air-conditioning units how to whistle during maintenance and repair services. They service all makes and models and include a 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty on all their work.
The stockroom at Best Auto Glass carries more than one million auto parts. While it’s hard to imagine the variety of windows, windshields, tints, and wiper blades for countless vehicle makes and models, one thing is clear—coming in for glass or mirror repairs or replacements means same-day service and a true match.
Among the company’s common repairs perfected over 10-plus years in business is windshield cracks. Before a windshield chip spiders into a crack, Best’s certified glass techs fill it with a resin to preserve its integrity. If the chip has already cracked, they carefully pop the windshield out and plug in a new, factory-authorized one. They also repair glass regulators when side windows become troublesome to roll up or down and can cleanly peel away old tinting from windows. Two locations conveniently serve the DC area, and techs also offer mobile services to areas such as Stafford, Ashburn, Silver Spring, and all of DC.
