From its four auto oases, Splash Carwash indulges Little Rock conveyances with services from express oil changes and comprehensive detailing to in-and-out car washes. Under the supervision of founder Paul Stagg, the family-owned-and-operated business employs eco-friendly products to protect our nation's dwindling herds of dune buggies. Splash proudly plays its part for community development with ongoing fundraising efforts, a Teacher of the Month rewards program, and military discounts.
If the technicians in Bale Kia’s parts and service departments ever need inspiration, they only need to look at the dealership’s showroom of new and certified preowned vehicles. The pristine rides are models of vehicle vigor, something the technicians strive to preserve in all the cars that come through their shop by swapping out motor oil, replacing transmissions, repairing damage from collisions, and hanging accomplishment-scented air fresheners.
Both Splash Zone and Hurricane Bay restore allure to befouled buggies with soft-brush automatic car washes. Breadcrumb trails of spark plugs lure vehicles into a computerized prerinse that softens up caked-on mud and grime. After loosening sludge, the car wash blankets soggy sedans in soft brushes, allowing drivers seated inside to imagine that they're being eaten by a shag carpet. The wash then dispatches muck from the entire exterior and shines tires before an automatic dryer blasts away excess water. Drivers redeem their coupons at computerized kiosks outside the car wash and can upgrade to higher-priced washes for an additional fee.
Expressway Airport Parking offers travelers the convenience of on-demand pickup combined with the security of round-the-clock lot surveillance. Simply park your car in a covered space, and a shuttle will drop you off at the airport, then return to pick you up upon arrival, whatever the time of day. Emergency car care helps drivers cope with dead batteries, flat tires, and lazy windshield wipers, and complimentary copies of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette ensure everyone has ample hat-making material during their cloud cruise.
Owner Amman Abbasi blends beats from his ancestral homeland with samples of flavors more easily recognizable to the generally monolingual American palate. Commence naan-breaking with naan ($1.25), veggie samosas ($2.50), or crispy lentil wafers ($1.50). Americanize a meal with a chicken tikka wrap rolled with spicy chutney in toasted naan ($6.49), or a burger of finely minced beef and yogurt cilantro chutney ($5.99). Keep it real with chicken qorma in curry and mild spices ($7.99) or karahi gosht, mutton stewed in curried tomatoes, ginger, yogurt, and succulent self-pity ($8.99). Of course there are plenty of ways to keep it meatless too, whether that be a masala of okra ($6.49) or the cheese-and-spinach-spangled palak paneer ($5.49).
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle.
