Bobby & Steve's Auto World
repairs, maintains, and spruces up autos across eight Twin Cities locations, each decked out in vintage Coca Cola and Chevy memorabilia. On-site mechanics tackle all kinds of transportation-related jobs, from oil changes and flat tires to broken glass and sputtering exhaust pipes. The specialists can also tow your car, replace feeble batteries, and calmly persuade doors to open after extended lock-outs.
At the detail shop, a team of highly trained reconditioning techs uses specialized tools to gussy up your car. They'll remove oxidation with orbital polishers or deep-clean carpets with hot water extractors. The shop also has an arsenal of more than 20 chemicals to treat all types of surfaces; enlist their help for vinyl and leather conditioners or Rain-X solution, which fends off stains due to precipitation or truck beds full of sports mascots with super soakers.
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.
Whether by wax, buff, or shampoo, the technicians at Kind Auto Detailing take a hard stance against automotive dirt and grime. They use 3M products on vehicles' exteriors to give the finish a clean, glossy look and put shampoos, conditioners, and vacuums to work making interiors look new and unused. On top of cleaning, Kind Auto Detailing also offers headlight restoration and paintless dent removal.
The technicians at World's Best Detailing Center stand at the ready seven days a week to purify dirty cars with an arsenal of cleaners and shampoos. For cars that need a quick bath before a hot date with a radar gun, the repertoire of hand washes starts out at a basic towel-dry and ramps up to lavish autos with such treats as dash detailing, hand waxing, and complimentary oil tastings. Staffers also tackle larger projects with extensive interior and exterior detailing packages. On the inside, seats bask in a deep shampoo and leather and vinyl surfaces are left shiny and conditioned. Meanwhile, technicians use high-speed buffers to coax a brilliant shine from exterior paint, detail the chrome by hand, and delve into the engine compartment to evict excess grease.
At Midwest Detailing and Auto Reconditioning, owner John Carlson's team of techs washes, buffs, and waxes vehicles' exteriors with high-quality 3M products. But they don't stop there. In fact, of the business's dozens of detailing services, more than half take place inside the vehicle. During an interior cleaning, staffers vacuum and shampoo upholstery, remove stains, and even offset water damage. Like a tree that's grown through a wire fence or away from a weirdo with a chainsaw, the team knows how to adapt to the circumstances, choosing different products based on the color and material of the vehicle's interior.
