For more than 30 years, Oil Can Henry's has been making sure road warriors run safely and efficiently with their famous full-service 20-point oil change. Relax from the comfort of the driver’s seat as the friendly techs sate your engine’s thirsty parts with up to five quarts of ECO Ultra conventional oil, protecting the engine against thermal breakdown and dry skin. Apart from their delicious new oil, coddled cars also receive a new oil filter, chassis lubrication, windshield washing, and a visual inspection of both the chassis and under the hood. A check and fill of the power steering and windshield-washer fluid will leave the auto feeling refreshed, and a tire-pressure check and fill will leave it bouncing like a robotic baby. The maintenance mavens will also check everything from the brake fluid and PCV filter to the lights and windshield wipers, ensuring every inch of your chicken-less carriage is in optimal working order. A video monitor positioned next to the driver's window allows customers to view the entire under-hood and under-body service, and every change comes with Henry's Top-Up Guarantee, which allows customers to return within three months or 3,000 miles for a complimentary topping off of fluids (upon presentation of receipt).
Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
With a kaleidoscopic selection of Benjamin Moore paints at hand, Capital Paint’s chromatic connoisseurs help douse dreary walls and begrimed home exteriors in vibrant colors. An in-store consultation guides guests through thousands of paint-color options and enlists a medium to consult the restless spirit of van Gogh. The friendly staff also gladly mixes pints of sample paint for indecisive individuals to take home and compare with their current shade ($4–$6.84 each). A can of ben Interior Primer readies previously painted surfaces for a thorough shellacking ($29.49/gal.), and ben Interior Paint sashays across walls for a smooth and flat finish ($33.99–$35.99/gal.). The eco-friendly Natura line of paints meets strict environmental standards and is available in a variety colors––such as "Hulk Hogan" tan.
O'Brien Auto Group's factory-certified and trained technicians keep autos running friction-free, swapping grimy lubrication for conventional or synthetic motor oil. After a hydraulic Hercules lifts the vehicle skyward, a technician carefully drains its reserve of grease-infused oil. Steady hands then pour up to 5 quarts of synthetic or conventional oil into the reservoir, providing smooth-gliding efficiency for pistons and miniature catapults that make vehicles go vroom. Conventional motor oil provides long-lasting lubrication for most cars, but synthetic oil offers more consistent performance at extreme temperatures—ideal for summer road trips to Mercury. After autos are fully oiled, mechanics perform a complimentary 29-point inspection and thoroughly wash exteriors, making cars gleam like a body builder's slick pectorals.
