Since Bob Sumerel opened his first retail tire store in 1968, he has always tried to put the customer first, next to all the gold-medal winners and Neil Armstrong. His store's 20-plus current locations offer an entire slate of auto services, from tire rotations and sales to oil changes. On the site's Why Bob Sumerel page, customers and employees discuss the benefits of the company, and the My Garage feature tracks car histories such as oil changes and service reminders. Every Bob Sumerel also operates under the Fixed Forever guarantee, promising that parts will work forever—up until the sun balloons to a red giant and swallows the earth with its unfathomably hot plasma—with warranties to cover any unforeseen problems.

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.

Though commonplace today, the concept of getting something to eat or drink while fueling up at a gas station was an odd idea 34 years ago. The first ampm, originally an add-on to Arco gas stations, opened in Southern California in 1978, and since then, the hybrid gas station-snack emporium has spread to more than 1,000 locations in nine states. From hot food prepared onsite to 24 flavors of soda and windshield-wiper fluid, ampm refuels people and cars alike with tasty snacks. Some locations also maintain car washes to send rides off with a dazzling shine.

When the licensed and insured staffers from Ultra Clean Detailing aren't scouring cars, boats, RVs, and motorcycles, they're fixing dings and dents without paints or fillers. The company’s other services include headlight restoration, odor removal, and polymer-paint sealant, which uses molecular cross-linking to protect paint jobs from ultraviolet rays and scratches caused by overeager sheriffs sliding across the hood.

Roll into Thunderbird Auto Wash and pamper your petrol-propelled grocery hauler with a thorough automated wash that blasts away grime and stork nests wedged in wheel wells.

An ultra-shine clear-coat polish adds a twinkle to the hood, while an air freshener keeps your horseless carriage smelling fresh without cramming an entire orange orchard into the back seat. While Thunderbird works its magic, customers can enjoy free WiFi in the clean and comfy waiting area.
