The emblems of Chevrolet, Kia, Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, Ram, and Mitsubishi glint in the sun at Miami Lakes AutoMall, where a full rainbow of new and used cars awaits drivers. Meanwhile, the AutoMall’s technicians diagnose already owned vehicles six days a week, replacing faulty parts and repairing paint scratches or maintaining upkeep with express oil changes and car washes. The techs can also install new tires on a car that’s outgrown its roller skates or outfit vehicles with security systems.
When it comes to taking care of a car, owners should never trust generic oils such as Pencilsoil or Waferstate. There's a reason some brand names remain the biggest brand names, and if cars or tin men could talk, they'd rave of the ways that Mobil brand oil extends their lifespan. At Hi Tech Lube, only Mobil oil is used in speedy fluid transfusions, which often take only 10 minutes. And for those who want to keep their cars up to manufacturer-recommended standards, a crew of technicians with more than 20 years of combined experience offer services in transmission, fuel/air induction, and cooling repair to keep drivers safe and happy.
The trained technicians at Heaven's Touch Auto Detailing expertly de-grime autos with hand-washing and -waxing services. During the 30–60-minute deluxe wash, soft cloths touch down on auto bodies to initiate a spa-like treatment that gently scrubs away dirt, sprays tires with Armor All, vacuums the interior, installs an air freshener, and flosses between cars' grills. Drivers can unwind in a waiting area with a full café, flat-screen televisions, and comfy seating; in addition to streak-free cars, female motorists will drive away from the shop with a complimentary rose from the staff.
With participating locations nationwide, Auto Care Special lets customers reach out to their local garages for a grab bag of free and discounted maintenance services. Cards may be redeemed for multiple vehicles over the course of one year for services such as oil changes, safety inspections, and engine-light diagnoses. Those who move or create alter-egos over the course of the year can scan the locations page for participating garages in their new cities of residence to receive a complimentary maintenance bundle.
Everything is done by hand at Miami Car Spa, where cars roll into individual stalls for sudsy hand washes, waxes, and interior cleanups. Patrons can choose from four wash styles, each named for a southern Florida hot spot, such as the quick and simple Miami style, which starts with a wash and ends with a spritz of air freshener. At the top of the list is the South Beach style, during which the crew treats paint to a clear-coat protectant before guiding rides to a shaded tent for a full interior cleanup, including shampoo, conditioner, and french braids for the seat belts.
