Colorado’s cluster of Midas Auto Service Experts shops have operated under the same local ownership for 30 years. At each location, ASE-certified service technicians care for vehicles in all kinds of capacities, from factory scheduled maintenance measures to extensive repairs on brake systems and engines. With each service, the team exerts the same advanced expertise that has made Midas a recognized industry name since the company’s inception more than 50 years ago at the dawn of time. The community-oriented Colorado service stations also support local philanthropic organizations including the YMCA and the grassroots road-safety campaign, Drive Smart.
Central City Automotive's experienced technicians keep vehicles rolling smoothly down the road with meticulous tire alignments. After booking an appointment, customers can bring their automobiles into the shop, where mechanics carefully analyze and calibrate front and rear wheels to improve handling, increase fuel efficiency, and keep treads from wearing down unevenly like a flamingo’s high heels. The alignment service also includes a front-end inspection, toe adjustment, and road test to ensure horseless chariots are ready to safely ferry drivers to and fro. To stay up to date with modern technologies, Central City Automotive's specialists take part in ongoing training and are pen pals with microwave ovens.
Most of the automotive-maintenance services at Pro Oil Change begin with the pop of a hood. The dull sound reverberates around the engine, where trained and certified technicians inspect air filters, replace batteries, refill fluid levels, and inject Valvoline motor oil. Outside the automotive nucleus, they extend their restorative touch toward burned-out headlights and waved-out windshield-wiper blades. All of this unfolds inside their welcoming facility, which accepts all vehicle makes and models and features a waiting room with TVs and complimentary coffee, hot chocolate, or tea.
Established in Vernon, BC, Kal Tire has six decades of service under its belt and more than 240 locations across Canada. The independent shop's many different brands of tires - including brands like Nokian, Michelin, and Bridgestone - keep cars, SUVs, semis, and even mining trucks running in all weather conditions. Its collection of shiny custom wheels brings class to once-drab jalopies. And its professional technicians keep highways safe and cars and trucks running smoothly by handling everything from routine air-pressure checks and alignments to brake-pad and shock replacements.
Xpress Auto Care's AOCA-certified technicians keep vehicles sailing smoothly on the cement seas with fresh lubricants. During the oil change, experienced mechanics drain motors of their used oil before treating them to a batch of lubricant freshly squeezed from a ripe, preservative-free gear. All cars may fill their bellies with up to five quarts of conventional or synthetic-blend slurry; older automobiles may opt to chug a hearty serving of high-mileage motor oil to keep well-worn engines cleaner and running without a hitch. The essential service also includes the installation of a standard oil filter, which can help ensure vehicles' innards remain free of contaminants and olive oil masquerading as motor oil.
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
