What began more than 50 years ago as a single auto-repair outlet in Macon, Georgia, is known across America today as Midas. The trusted chain of car-repair shops spans 17 countries worldwide, and each location employs a skilled, reliable staff that strives to keep drivers and their families safe. This goal is perhaps best embodied by the Midas Touch Courtesy Check, a service during which technicians check fluid levels and tires for safety and check the area under the vehicle to make sure Robert De Niro isn’t trying to hitch a free ride. Once they've given vehicles the once-over, mechanics can then prescribe any necessary services to keep cars running smoothly, such as brake repair, filter changes, alignments, and engine tune-ups.
Terrible Herbst's staff cares for cars and the environment by swiping vehicular surfaces with eco-friendly Blue Coral products. During the ultimate full-service wash, vehicles are scoured inside and out over 20–25 minutes. Valets escort vehicles to the drive-thru tunnel, in which cars luxuriate in a bath of foam. A car caretaker then towel-dries its exterior and takes to the inside, wiping windows, dashboards, and consoles, and vacuuming dirt and Australopithecus-era crumbs from carpets. Wheels emerge from the treatment purged of dirt, and tires debut enameled in a protective dressing. The VIP express car wash with RainX cleanses cars in less than five minutes with a human-operated pre-scrub, then sends them through the underpass to bask in bubbles and a spot-free rinse.
The auto-body buffs at Golden State Auto Care safeguard cars and houses with professional window tinting. SunTek auto-glass film insulates vehicular interiors from 99% of UV intrusions, while a clear-bra application shields cars from road debris such as rocks, salt, or overly aggressive stop signs. Aside from sheathing rides, Golden State’s techs also cloak homes in SunTek films to block glares and lower air-conditioning costs, all while providing 79% visible-light transmittance.

Heartland Jiffy Lubes enjoy the benefits of being under the Heartland Automotive Services umbrella, putting them in good company along with more than 435 Jiffy Lubes nationwide that service more than five million customers each year. They specialize in the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change, which comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter and up to 5 quarts of quality motor oil, plus a comprehensive lineup of other vehicle maintenance checkups. Highly trained technicians also perform cosmetic and mechanical services including inspections, emissions testing, transmission service, and counseling for 1960s Corvettes that are going through a mid-life crisis.
Each Auto Tech location is staffed with ASE-certified mechanics who've sworn an oath to never upsell on any service or repair. Customer service remains top priority, whether techs are performing routine maintenance such as tune-ups and oil changes or more advanced procedures such as transmission services, cooling-system maintenance, and diagnostic repairs. Seven locations sprinkled around the Las Vegas area make it easy for customers to find quick car care at the first sign of an engine rattle or after an unexpected run-in with a jaywalking cactus.
