From its humble beginnings as an automotive glass store in Warren, Simbol Auto Glass has mushroomed into five locations. At the pentafecta of silica shops, techs unholster Sika brand products to eradicate windshield chips, and can outright replace cracked windshields in about one hour, or seven dog-hours. To keep sunlight from fading interiors, Simbol tints windows with Smoke film, which can reduce 4%–68% of transmitted light. Technicians also enhance cars with remote starters, alarms, and satellite radio.
Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corp., Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto accessory and detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations in 30 countries. Performing everything from window tinting and professional detailing to electronics installation, Ziebart's experienced staff cares for cars with high-end products, including seasonal paint protectant and the company’s renowned rust inhibitors. To protect cars inside and out, Ziebart technicians also install accouterments such as alarm systems to thwart thieves and sunroofs to thwart unflattering film negatives from processing correctly (services may vary by location).
With lube and service centers spread across America, Valvoline Instant Oil Change ensures that roads from coast to coast teem with automotive vigor. Certified technicians perform a roster of services, including quick in-and-out oil changes that allow motorists to arrive without an appointment and remain in their car while Valvoline oils forge a truce between metal parts.
While Groupon holders should hurry to redeem their first oil change within four months of today’s date, they’ll have 18 months to use today’s deal in its entirety. This Groupon is valid for most vehicles; call your preferred location to make sure your vehicle qualifies.
Auto Tint City is abuzz with activity: at one workstation, certified glass techs pop out and replace a busted windshield, while across the shop a tinting expert carefully applies 3M Color Stable films to windows. Adroit at maintaining and enhancing vehicle exteriors, the team glazes autos with paint-protecting solutions and sprays rustproofing products into nooks and crannies to bolster vehicles’ structural integrity. Their skills also extend to the installation of auto accessories such as halogen headlights, truck bed liners, and alarms that prevent theft better than the honor system.
