At Metropolitan Rustproofing, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound, and probably hundreds of dollars worth of cure. According to the automotive aestheticians, rust begins creeping into metalwork as an invisible, microscopic menace. The pernicious oxidation has no end of options. Vehicles have at least 1500 bends, crevices, and hollow spaces where air and moisture can seep in and begin to corrode interiors and exteriors.
Happily, Metropolitan Rustproofing has cars literally covered. Its six-step process shields everything from the undercarriage to the trunk, hood, and door hinges. The treatment prevents rust with the help of one of two oil treatments, including a biodegradable vegetable-based version. Like the Tin Man’s prescription medications, the solutions keep rust at bay and prevent existing rust outbreaks from spreading. The shop guarantees its services for life so long as vehicles are treated annually.
Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box filter; a checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights.

Lave Auto Royale's attentive technicians only admit two cars per hour in order to give each auto their undivided attention. Armed with high-quality products, they wash and wax cars by hand, adding when necessary a clay-bar treatment, which is a nonabrasive method of removing stubborn debris such as tree sap and recalcitrant mules from cars' exteriors. Additionally, staff members have years of experience providing a host of special services, ranging from window tinting to the installation of bug deflectors, spoilers, decals, and racing stripes.
Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigour with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, and fluids.

Cars are also given a once-over while in the shop to ensure that everything is running safely and smoothly.
