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. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, brakes, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
The ASE-certified and AAA-approved technicians at Superior Collision and Paintless Dent Repair solve automotive issues arising from collisions and general wear and tear, specializing in repairing dents and restoring headlights. The team is lead by head tech Yury Gitelman, an Miami auto-body stalwart for more than a decade who honed his skills in Chicago and Russia. Part of his mission is spreading the word about the safety hazards that can arise from old, cloudy headlights, such as diminished visibility, especially when driving in inclement weather or through a cornfield. He cites several studies that show dim headlights increase the risk of an accident, and says that Florida law requires drivers to have high-beam headlights that show objects 450 feet ahead. When repairing dents, the team gently fixes the metal back into place from the inside, eliminating the need for paint touchups.
The ASE-certified master technicians at Premier Collision have been resuscitating rides in South Florida for more than two decades. Inside the 20,000-square-foot facility, the team relies on the industry's latest equipment to breathe new life into both foreign and domestic cars. Limited lifetime warranties back up their work, too, whether your car needs a new side mirror, got scratched up in a fender bender, or suffered major damage after falling out of a hammock.
