Since 1996, the ASE-certified technicians at Economy Transmissions have been striving to keep cars on the road with services ranging from basic oil changes to advanced repairs and rewirings. As the business’s name suggests, the shop specializes in transmission maintenance and can swiftly diagnose and remedy issues such as noisy gearboxes and jolting gearshifts, as well as problems unrelated to transmissions, such as car horns that won’t stop cussing.
Husband-and-wife team Marcus and Tonya run Karworkz the old fashioned way: with hard work all done by hand. During services such as basic washes their team whips out the soft cloth and safely buffs cars clean, while complete detailing dolls up autos inside and out, shining everything from tires to ash trays. A multi-talented squad, they can also accomplish headlight restorations that clear away oxidation for brighter illumination, as well as upholstery repairs.
An ASE master technician mans the controls at All Pro Services Tire & Auto Center, a NAPA AutoCare Center and Blue Seal shop. All of the service center's mechanics pack impressive credentials under their hoods, and are well equipped to handle all makes and models of cars, SUVs, trucks, and service vehicle fleets. Brands such as Goodyear, Dunlap, and Valvoline fortify the range of services they offer, from repairing tires to checking cars' belts, hoses, and resting heart rates. While the mechanics fiddle, customers can either catch a shuttle ride to work or retreat to the comfortable waiting room to watch TV, slurp complimentary coffee, and surf the free WiFi.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Express Oil Change & Service Center has treated cars to comprehensive yet convenient oil changes performed in 10 minutes. That tradition is continued today, in 170 shops sprinkled across 10 southern states, each staffed by a fleet of ASE-certified technicians who also submit autos to a range of maintenance and repair services, backed by warranties and environmentally conscious practices.
During the 10-minute full-service oil change, technicians don't just drain and recycle dirty fluids: they also put cars through the wringer by inspecting belts, hoses, and suspension systems, checking air filters, and sleuthing around the undercarriage for looming problems or secret piercings––all while customers wait comfortably in their car. In the service center, they call upon top equipment to rotate and balance tires, inspect brakes, and repair or replace parts, and use level 1 and level 2 computer diagnostics to correctly diagnose all manner of mechanical ailments.
The staff members of Southern Detail Worxs apply paint jobs, hand washes, carnauba wax, and wet sanders during a tier of detailing sessions. To augment these details, they dish out a la carte services, including odor-elimination treatments and shampoo treatments for floor mats, whose hair growth can get rather unwieldy. The team also boasts experienced window-tinting installers, who accent glass surfaces with Solar Gard films that can help windows to deflect up to 99% of UV rays and up to 66% of solar heat.
