Steve Jones Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep's team of ASE-certified technicians replenish oil, review vehicular conditions, and rotate tires in 30-minute consultations. During the service, mechanics drain off dirty, aged oil before funneling up to five new quarts into parched-lipped autos. Next, a 40-point inspection assesses car safety by checking that lights are properly glowing, brakes are properly braking, and side-view mirrors are properly reflecting objects to appear ghostlier than they actually are. Steve Jones' technicians top off the treatment with a quick tire rotation to ensure each wheel has an evenly worn shoe to boldly face the roads ahead. While rides undergo fine-tuning, customers lounge in the shop's comfy waiting area, replete with cable TV and WiFi, freshly brewed coffee, and popcorn popped daily.

Since 1962, the motor mavens at Big O Tires have been treating tin lizzies to a slew of services, including their specialty 30-minute express oil changes. The tireless techs speedily slurp out old oil with anteater-esque precision, replacing worn out filters, and rewarding loyal dip sticks with up to 5 quarts of new crude. Following a chassis lubrication, wheel wranglers remove each tire, before moving them and their entire DVD collection to a new home in an adjacent wheel well, helping to guarantee even wear and tear. After a thorough fluid check and preventative maintenance analysis, revamped rides are happily reunited with the owners to depart together into the sunset. Upgrades are available for diesel oil (price based on vehicle and location), high-mileage oil ($10–$15 extra), and synthetic oil ($20–$30 extra).

An Evansville institution since 1960, Master Tire assists drivers with automotive repair and accessories, informed by three generations of vehicular wisdom. During a standard oil change, Master Tire's ASC-certified mechanics will replace old, worn-out oil with fresh-faced young fluid (a $36.95 value), straight from lubricant college and ready to take on the heat, dust, and incredible pressures of today's high-octane internal-combustion world. To help new oil adjust to its new job of safeguarding precious moving parts, gaskets, and various shafts, a fresh oil filter is included. After its insides have been quenched, the friendly techs will turn their attention to its exterior, repositioning all four tires to ensure even wear and tear (a $20 value). Master Tire also offers a free pickup and delivery service (call ahead for availability), allowing customers to attend to their buggy's health needs without cutting into their rigid work, school, or butter-churning schedules.
When it was founded in 1959, Ziebart’s business model hinged on a single service: its innovative rust-prevention procedure. However, the chain has diversified its auto treatments throughout the last five decades. Though the team of certified technicians continues to safeguard vehicles against corrosion, they also protect paint jobs with Z-Shield and Diamond Gloss coatings and render interior fabrics stain-resistant with their house Ultra Fabric Protector formula. They clean and disinfect ride interiors, and hand-wash and machine polish exteriors to a sparkling shine. Beyond up-keeping vehicles, they stock an arsenal of car electronics that run the gamut from remote car starters to in-dash navigation systems, which can help drivers find their way back home without relying on a trail of breadcrumbs.
John Searcy started his battery business out of the back of his truck in spring 1950. He opened an official storefront in 1952, naming it Interstate Battery System after the new network of interstate highways that was under construction across the country. Over the next 60 years, his company expanded to all 50 states, as well as Australia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Guyana, Panama, and the Dominican Republic. Each Interstate All Battery Center location—as well as the company's online database—houses an extensive selection of batteries for cars, electronics, household items, and computers. They also collect power sources for security systems, medical equipment, and other niche devices. Many of their batteries come with a 45-day satisfaction warranty, though it doesn’t cover batteries stolen by siblings to power their Game Boys.
