The techs at Eco Detailing Services refuse to clean cars with water. Instead, they use a waterless concoction that contains plant-based surfactants that oust grime and polymers that protect paint jobs from environmental assailants. They use this solution whenever they clean vehicles—whether cars, trucks, motorcycles, or tame dragons. While detailing, they also draw on a range of earth-friendly products with natural, nontoxic ingredients that are safe for kids and pets. When they aren't sponging and drying autos by hand, they work with local nonprofits and the American Red Cross.

The family of technicians at New England Imports has been tightening bolts and tinkering with engines since 1982. An oil change swaps out tired oil for a fresh supply, helping to keep parts moving smoothly and human-auto diplomacy intact. The shop's horseless-carriage vets then take vitals to ensure vehicles' overall health and fitness, examining tires, brakes, and shocks to ensure jolt-free starts and stops. A look at ball joints makes for more smoothly executed turns, and an exhaust-system check reveals signs of smoking or other forms of adolescent rebellion. After flickering lights, waving wipers, and inspecting belts for elasticity, durability, and proper coordination with hubcaps, the team gives coolant levels and filters a glance and certifies four-wheeled companions ready to hit the road.

At Commercial Street Auto Care, automotive experts tackle any and every job—from window washing to lumberjacking—with such precision and attention that the company has begun calling itself “obsessive.” Using professional products by Pro and Malco, the shop’s detailing crew diligently tackles all vehicular dirt and grime with basic exterior washes and full-service professional detailing, complete with hand waxes, tire dressing, and interior conditioning. Aside from restoring shine to sullied rides, Commercial Street’s technicians peek under the hood and slide beneath the underbody to maintain and repair all systems, from swapping tires to servicing transmissions. They also vend and install professional window tints by Solar Guard, Suntech, and Madico to block UV rays from damaging the interior and thwart excessive heat from boiling Big Gulps.

Specializing in European cars, Merlin Motors’s lot glistens with Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and BMW vehicles. Though they mainly focus on those manufacturers, the techs at Merlin Motors broaden their automotive spectrum with Toyotas, Fords, Jeeps, and stalled alien spacecraft. Inside their two-car, full-service garage, they crawl under the hood of most makes and models for oil changes and check-ups.

Hydraulic lifts puff and sigh as they slowly lift cars above Duval Service Center’s shop floor, revealing each auto underbelly to Mark Duval and his team of ASE-certified mechanics. After pinpointing common breakdown culprits, such as overheating and always being picked last for dodge ball, techs get busy re-padding brakes, clearing out exhaust systems, and performing other services that keep vehicles running smoothly. While their cars get pampered, drivers can kick back in the red cushioned chairs of the waiting area to read a magazine, or wander Duval’s Service Center’s lot of foreign and domestic used cars.
