The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.

Started in 1971 by a team of seasoned muffler-shop owners, the service centers have blossomed from their beginnings as specialty exhaust shops to providers of nearly any repair or maintenance service imaginable, from installing performance-enhancing accessories to treating cars to therapeutic trust falls. In addition to promoting safety and long, healthy engine life with brake services and speedy oil changes, Car-X Auto Service reaches out to the surrounding community with regular philanthropic activities, such as recycling drives and participation in the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with professional brake services including a lifetime warranty on parts, labor and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, suspension repair, and belt replacement.
Express Care Quick Lube’s staff of trained mechanics pampers horseless carriages with an array of maintenance and repair services. Whet your thirsty motor's appetite with the full-service oil change, which includes up to five quarts of 10w30 or 5w30 oil, as well as a check and top-off of power-steering, transmission, transaxle, battery, window-washer, radiator, and differential fluids (brake fluid will be checked but not topped off). To complete the comprehensive auto physical, the skilled engine doctors will also replace your oil filter, lubricate the vehicle's chassis, and ensure proper inflation of the wheels. Each vehicle will receive a fuel-system additive, a separate service that cleans road dust and other contaminants out of the air-intake manifold to improve the auto's mileage, performance, and emotional well-being. And because every car deserves to look just as good as it feels, customers will be provided with four "The Works" touchless washes that lather, wash, polish, and seal vehicular exteriors. New wipers up to 24 inches will then be installed to ensure sparkling windshields remain free of flying debris, bug splatters, and carelessly flung cups of chili.
At The Oil Exchange, auto owners stay in the driver's seat, sipping complimentary soda or water as technicians fill the engine with synthetic-blend oil. The drive-thru service center's technicians never act without full consent. They keep auto owners informed with education skits written by middle school teachers as they carry out state inspections or oil, transmission, and radiator services.
Paradise Carwash eschews automated machines, performing all car washes by hand. With a pat on the hood and scratch behind the fender, their detailers welcome autos into an onsite shop. Here, they wax paint jobs, remove bugs, and smooth uneven surfaces with clay-bar treatments. The detailers can fight grime on larger vehicles as well, such as the family RV, boat, or zeppelin.
