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.
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.
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.
Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
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 Zak Chemicals. 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.
Drivers that enter Lucky Car Wash's completely computerized cleaning system can safely take their hands off the wheel. A conveyor guides cars through the soft-cloth setup, which cleanses car exteriors to a shine. The entire business isn?t hands-free though; the staff also provides detailing and waxing services. Lucky Car Wash recently came under new ownership.
