The ASE-certified mechanics that staff FixCarNow's five locations reinvigorate cars with Castrol GTX oils and preempt problems with sweeping diagnostics. During each one-hour premium oil change, techs drain contaminated lubricants and replace them with up to five quarts of clean oil (synthetic available for an additional fee). New filters then assume guard duty in place of their dirty predecessors, intercepting dirt and rumors about recent monster-truck sightings. A 16-point diagnostic inspection takes techs on a tour of car’s vital components, and includes a brake inspection, chassis lube, fluid top off, and wiper-blade check. Service bays happily hoist cars up for fluid transfusions seven days a week, meaning drivers can no longer use busy schedules or observance of Take Your Unicycle to Work Day as an excuse for shirking automotive duties.
At Downtown Car Wash, vehicles shine with showroom sparkle after trips through a full-service car wash and sessions with the shop's skilled detailers. The techs pamper automotive surfaces by hand, doling out carnauba wax, Armor All, and shampoo suds like a confused blackjack dealer.
