Oil Express bolsters automobiles with 10-minute, full-service oil changes. Technicians first drain contaminated oil from the car and check it for lost keys before replacing it with up to 5 quarts of 5W20 or 5W30 oil, affixing a new filter in the process. Because Oil Express carries multiple kinds of oil, including synthetic options, drivers can be sure that their car will find something appetizing. After lubing the chassis, adroit mechanics duck down to inspect the undercarriage, then lift the hood to check the battery, turning their grease guns loose on the driver's door. Next, they top off most fluids (the first pint is free), eyeball belts and hoses, and adjust tire pressure before patting the car on the trunk and sending it on its way.
Sam Meineke opened his three-bay muffler shop in 1972 with a single product line, and through time, he and his successors have expanded the business into a complete automotive car-care center. Today, nearly 900 franchise owners operate their locations around the globe, still standing on the firm foundation of Sam's ideal of nursing vehicles back to health at fair prices. Meineke Car Care Centers’ mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
When it was founded in 1959, Ziebart’s business model hinged on a single service: its innovative rust-prevention procedure. However, the chain has diversified its auto treatments throughout the last five decades. Though the team of certified technicians continues to safeguard vehicles against corrosion, they also protect paint jobs with Z-Shield and Diamond Gloss coatings and render interior fabrics stain-resistant with their house Ultra Fabric Protector formula. They clean and disinfect ride interiors, and hand-wash and machine polish exteriors to a sparkling shine. Beyond up-keeping vehicles, they stock an arsenal of car electronics that run the gamut from remote car starters to in-dash navigation systems, which can help drivers find their way back home without relying on a trail of breadcrumbs.

While-you-wait service rests on a trademark 10-minute oil change, complete with a fresh filter and a high-octane lollipop for well-behaved cars.

They also keep an eye on the check-engine lights, providing proper care and attention for no additional fee, and fortify select services with nationwide warranties.
