The staff at Laguna Hills Car Wash & Detail Center works to make sure cars and trucks leave glimmering like they?ve never glimmered before. Customers? vehicles roll through an automated tunnel during seven kinds of washes, such as the Presidential Package, which adds vacuuming, underbody washes, clear coat protectant, and tire dressing to the basic wash. Express and full-service details spruce up interiors and exteriors with orbital polish, leather dressing, clear coat exfoliation, and carnauba paste wax. In addition to its washes and details, Laguna Hills also repairs windshields after relaxing drives through dark forests, and offers a la carte services such as odor neutralizing and engine degreasing. To distract from the waiting area's current remodeling, staffers dish out scoops of Thrifty Ice Cream to customers as they await their rides.
The licensed and BASF-certified technicians from Pacific Match Paint travel to their customers to render a wide range of auto-body services, from wheel and rim repair to detailing. When working on dents and dings, the technicians use the SmartTrak computer color-matching system for exterior toners and an SEM-3M system for interiors to ensure an accurate color match. All of the mobile outfit's repairs—whether headlight restoration, interior leather rehab, or bumper refinishing—are guaranteed for life, or at least until cars make the prophesied exodus back to their home planet.
Allstar Detail’s hardworking technicians impart cars, trucks, and SUVs with a luxurious shine and a protective finish following intensive detailing treatments. Each vehicle in the shop’s care bathes in gentle reverse-osmosis water, ensuring an exterior free from spots or semipermeable cell membranes. Pressurized water removes built-up dust and grime from wheel wells, while liberal applications of elbow grease cover up blemishes with biodegradable coats of Meguiar’s wax. In addition to bringing cars to their original factory-floor good looks through exterior and interior detailing, the techs at Allstar Detail outfit windows with UV-blocking tints, remove dents, and guard against scratches and chips with transparent clear bra films.
While RedOx Automotive’s technicians work beneath hoods and scope out engines, customers can keep their own hands and eyes busy with in-house iPads and complimentary Wi-Fi. This is just one example of RedOx's commitment to customer comfort. Another example: the shop provides a free shuttle service, as well as complimentary loaner cars for clients whose vehicles require more than 12 hours of service—which means they can keep on schedule without having to flag down a taxi driver and ask him to call them a limo.
But RedOx Automotive doesn’t want to keep your car that long. That’s why they staff technicians who service engines, transmissions, and electrical systems with the skill and backing of ASE certification. Beyond performing repairs, the shop's staff also sells and installs tires and conducts rotations.
The technicians at Executint are plenty familiar with applying window films to automobiles, permanent structures, and boats—they’ve been doing it for thirty years. With finesse and painstaking craftsmanship, they lay tints over car windows to protect drivers from heat and UV rays and to give the car a sleek aesthetic. A number of tint styles are available for residential and commercial buildings—for the former, they carry infrared and ceramic films, and for the latter, they stock BlackOut, frosted, etched, and opaque films that provide two-way privacy. Executint also installs 3M Scotchguard paint protection films and anti-graffiti coating to protect surface walls from vandals and next-door neighbors that load up their homemade catapults with cans of paint.
Cherry Avenue Auto Clinic’s technicians facilitate smooth, trouble-free driving through maintenance services and repairs.

They also repair faulty brakes, engines, and electrical systems, and sell new and used tires and wheels.
