Founders Ben and Jackie Thompson knew exactly what to do with their passion for automobiles and 20 years of retail and service experience: open up a comprehensive car care and motoring facility that focuses on superior customer service. The Grease Lightning brand has since expanded to include franchises under the Castrol Premium Lube Express name, each location servicing autos with a friendly and highly trained staff. They specialize in tire and maintenance service, performing repairs such as rotations, oil changes, and battery replacement with products from reputable brands including Goodyear tires, Interstate batteries, and Castrol, Pennzoil, and Havoline lubricants. In addition to keeping cars as clean and pristine as they day they were plucked from the ground with full detail services, the Grease Lightning staff can even help clients replace a hopelessly soiled vehicle entirely through car and motorcycle sales
The Tint Shop outfits vehicles and businesses with all their tinting needs using a majority 3M products, a trade that's earned the business accolades on the Democrat and Chronicle's Rochester?s Choice list for nine years in a row.

Solar-control films block up to 99% of the sun's rays?keeping upholstery from fading and bread from toasting?while specially designed safety and security films reinforce glass to protect it during harsh weather or burglaries. Aside from treating windows, The Tint Shop's crew also masks headlights and taillights and soups up rides with vinyl graphics, audio and video systems, car alarms, and remote starters.
Delta Sonic Car Wash renews tarnished transportation with an innovative touchless car-wash system that automatically guides vehicles through a tunnel of high-pressure sprays and overhead buffing cloths. The hands-free wash massages mild lotions into paint jobs, leaving vehicles with sparkling, fingerprint-free finishes that are backed by a five-day guarantee. Detailing technicians do get their hands dirty as they make use of more than 100 hours of training to dote on vehicle interiors and exteriors with products from ValuGard, Aquapel, and Blue Coral. The team wields AOCA certification know-how when injecting engines with oil and devising rustproofing treatments that avoid drilling holes or covering corrosion in zit cream.
Auto Finishers Supply Co. owner Richard Trovato deals in more than just auto parts and accessories. He's also dedicated to customer service. Richard began working at the shop as an entry-level employee in 1969, then worked his way up to store manager in 1972. By 1986, he was the storeowner. Since he took the reins, Richard has instilled dedication to customers into every aspect of the business, from stocking quality car accessories, such as DuPont paints and Avital car systems, to employing ASE-certified technicians. Today, Richard and his children still run the shops' day-to-day operations, helping customers find car accessories from crystal clear stereos that house video screens to remote car starters that negate the need for car owners to politely ask it to start.
The friendly family of ride-primpers at Evergreen Car Wash has been meticulously returning messy motor vehicles to long-lasting luminescence for more than 15 years. The Ultimate Wash slathers on two kinds of soap during a soft-cloth machine wash: one to clean and shine the exterior glass and chrome, and another to gently remove tough soil and pollutants from the paint. Tires and rims then get mechanically de-gunked and shined before an attendant polishes your car to a brilliant Technicolor with red, yellow, and blue wax. Your car's soft, tickly underbelly is then sprayed with rust flush to protect the tenderest cuts of auto meat. Finally, a clear-coat protectant will inhibit gunkification caused by salt, dust, dirt, and rain.
Bob Johnson Chevrolet's knowledgeable service team and GM-trained mechanics prep for winter with oil changes, tire rotations, inspections, and new sets of tires. The certified service technicians execute the winterization package by appeasing engines' appetites with up to 6 quarts of standard motor oil, installing a new ACDelco oil filter, and lubricating hinges, suspensions, and drivelines. A tire rotation helps prolong rubbery soles' lifespans by balancing the wear and tear treads experience as cars drive on roads or the sides of pyramids. Techs also fill tires with nitrogen—as opposed to standard compressed air—to help to improve fuel efficiency and maintain constant tire pressure. Along with running through a General Motors–certified service checklist, mechanics administer a thorough inspection of fluids, wiper blades, batteries, brake systems, and flux capacitors.
