The car-whisperers of the 50-year-old Midas franchise investigate vehicles’ road-readiness with comprehensive inspections backed by the all-encompassing Midas guarantee. A 1.5-hour wintertime assessment probes brakes, suspension, batteries, and heating and cooling systems, thereby ensuring commuters' safety during drives through flurries or while outrunning the ice rays of Mr. Freeze's cold gun. Each seasonal inspection pairs with a complimentary tire rotation to even out rubber wear and ensure that each car-foot gets its 15-minutes in the spotlight of following cars.
Harbor Automotive's ASE-certified technicians keep cars dependably cruising along with a luxurious spread of maintenance services. During each oil change, a mechanic feeds jalopies up to six quarts of Mobil Clean oil and a new ACDelco filter, then checks all fluid levels, belts, and hoses before printing out an inspection report, which can be used to pay your next parking ticket. The staff will also lube up the steering, suspension, drive shaft, and door and hood hinges before announcing the end of the 45- to 60-minute service with a bubbly auto bath and interior vacuum.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle.

More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical system maintenance, among others. Jiffy Lube's quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
