At Rene Isip's Toyota of Lewisville, even ugly or ailing roadsters can be restored to health by a team of talented technicians, whose state-of-the-art services nurse four-wheel friends back to the peak of health. A full-auto detailing will carefully scrub each horseless carriage from tire to tail light, washing and hand-drying it as thoroughly as NASA technicians clean the space shuttle before taking their dates to prom in it. Next, the car cleansers move inside, shampooing and vacuuming to remove stains, and loose change and other debris from the trunk, upholstery and every floor mat in between. A thorough detailing will not only boost the vehicle's appearance to car-show quality, it can also increase its resale value and protect against further wear, tear, and emotional baggage.
Meineke Car Care Center's experienced technicians ready cars, trucks, and SUVs for reliable starts and safe cruises with preventive, maintenance, and repair services. After calling one of three shops to schedule an appointment, customers can roll their rides in and let mechanics feed engines fresh motor oil, install new filters, and remind carburetors of life's inherent beauty.
Charging-system tests ensure batteries are ready to rouse engines, and cooling-system diagnostics scour systems for leaks or blockages. Roadside-assistance packages, good for 24-hour towing, jump-starts, flat-tire service, and doo-wop singing in place of broken radios, allow motorists to travel without worry, and state inspections ensure jalopies stay on the good side of the law.
Drivers can control their cars' interior environments down to a specific degree. Short of driving their cars through grocery aisles, though, they have to leave their automobiles and risk the sun's wrath. To prevent solar rays from sizzling seats in cars, The Tint Shop & Accessories specializes in the application of window-tinting treatments, which block up to 99 percent of UV rays to prevent cars from overheating while adding an extra layer of privacy. The auto technicians primarily use Madico window films, which can be applied to cars, SUVs, boats, and even the windows of houses.
In their quest to provide the utmost in service, the staff offers a lifetime guarantee for their work so that each film will be working until the car is put out to pasture. The team also outfits cars with further amenities, such as in-car DVD players, iPod hookups, custom upholstery, and remote start for days it's cold enough to fill construction cones with ice cream and come back two hours later and find all 68 scoops still solid.
Celebrity Car Wash and Maintenance Center opens its work bays to vehicles in need of aesthetic and performance upkeep. The full-service shop features a tier of car-wash and detail services that eject road grime from paint jobs and Swamp Things from passenger seats. ASE-certified mechanics stand at the ready in the lube-and-maintenance shop, where they stage tune-ups and revive rides with products from Pennzoil and Phyzix Synthetics. While they wait, auto owners can surf the free WiFi at the computer bar, grab a cup of Starbucks java, or stare unblinkingly at TVs.
Kwik Kar Wash Flower Mound’s business-class wash tidies cars' insides, outsides, and undersides in about 25 minutes. Soft cloths lick mud pies and insect pâtés from the car's shell, leaving a generous triple-polish tip. After an invigorating steering-wheel scrub, the auto dons a clear-coat shield to protect paint from color-fading sun rays and innocence-stealing key scratches. A Rain-X treatment keeps drivers safe by repelling rain and sleet, which can greatly hinder visibility. The service concludes with a glossy tire dressing, a hint of car cologne, and a diploma stamped with a shiny gold star.
