Metro 25 Tire and Service's ASE-certified technicians maintain auto health with a bevy of repair and maintenance services and outfit rides with name-brand tires like Bridgestone and Firestone. An alignment ensures a vehicle's innards work in unison, decreasing stress and increasing gas mileage, transmission maintenance injects fresh fluids for silky smooth shifting, and a wheel-balance check prevents autos from vibrating like an empty jar of peanut butter resting on the skin of a timpani drum during an orchestral performance.
Pennzoil’s rich raceway heritage spans decades, from its first appearance in the early 1930s lubricating the engine of Indy 500 driver Russell Snowberger to its recent use in 2007 Daytona 500–winner Kevin Harvick’s car. Whether on the track in the Sprint Cup Series or in a garage in the suburbs, car owners who lube their rides with Pennzoil motor oil benefit from a more than 100-year lineage that dates back to one of John D. Rockefeller's original companies. The velvety substance contains trademarked Hyper Cleansing Technology and Active Cleansing Agents, which help to purify the engine's components and ward off damage caused by gasoline byproducts such as soot, carbon, varnish, and sulfuric and nitric acid. Pennzoil’s many service stations dot terra firma from the Atlantic to the Pacific and feature friendly technicians who perform oil changes and replace parts gone missing after the neighbor’s metal-detector-club meetings.
With lube and service centers spread across America, Valvoline Instant Oil Change ensures that roads from coast to coast teem with automotive vigor. Certified technicians perform a roster of services, including drive-thru oil changes that allow motorists to arrive without an appointment and remain in their car while Valvoline oils forge a truce between metal parts.
Like a swarm of Armor All–wielding hornets, the expert auto techs of Bojax Collision eagerly descend on cars in need of attention. They replace glass, detail out scratches, and give cars meticulous full-body makeovers with the assistance of computerized auto-paint systems. They also provide towing services and keep temporarily inconvenienced drivers on the road with the help of loaner cars, rental cars, and foam-lined bumper cars.
Since opening its first location in 1977, Super Car Wash has grown into a thriving car-cleaning kingdom with nine locations in the metro area. George, Todd, and Ryan Gesund and Heath Stack lead the effort to sanitize vehicles with sophisticated touchless air dryers and energy-conserving, computer-run gear. In addition to employing the robotic wiles of high-tech machinery, they protect paint jobs with coats of Simoniz wax and use biodegradable Armor All products and tear-free shampoo. The auto experts even distribute, install, and service Sonny's car-wash equipment for other businesses around Michigan. Their commitment to the local community is manifest in a long history of supporting schools and nonprofits through fundraising assistance.
Since 1968, the auto-body technicians at Beauty-Gard have helped vehicle owners fight the corrosive influences of time. The team offers two primary services to help preserve the youthful good looks of a car, truck, or SUV: its rust-and-corrosion protection and paint preservative. The protection involves the application of a special polymer at key points on the interior and exterior of the car to either prevent or staunch the spread of rust. The preservative locks in a car's just-waxed appearance with a Teflon coat.
