Surf Thru Express's speedy, automated onslaught of hoses, soaps, and delicate fabrics makes quick work of car filth in a WaterSavers-certified facility dominated by Ecolab products. For starters, the Ultimate wash unleashes a waterfall of Blue Coral triple foam to eliminate spots and wash away debris. Rain-X, the next best thing to real rain, keeps wheels and surfaces protected from the elements, and a coating of Black Magic tire shine douses road-weary tires with the same enchanting color you get by stuffing a rainbow in a blender. After WipeOut clear-coat shine adds a layer of sparkle, a spot-free rinse and power dry finish the exterior cleansing, and an air freshener and a free vacuuming ensure the insides stay fresh and especially sniffable. To guard against unexpected dust storms or pudding showers, the Ultimate wash includes a four-day guarantee to keep autos at the peak of their beauty.
With the standard five-quart oil change, a Clovis-Ashlan Express Lube mechanic will make sure your car is emptied of its dirty, unwanted oil, replacing it with new, clean lubricant. The Automotive Service Excellence–certified staff will go the extra kilometer, not only changing the oil and oil filter but also topping off fluids and giving a thorough inspection of the belts, hoses, wiper blades, thermonuclear landing gear, tires, air pressure, holographic Morgan Freeman–designed navigation system, brakes, and front suspension. In general, automobile owners should make sure to change their oil either every 3,000 miles—or three Vanessa Carlton hit singles in the metric system—or every three to six months.
