More than 40 years ago, the doors to Fountain Car Wash & Lube's full-service car wash tunnel opened to reveal a slew of heavy bristle brushes. Since then, the tunnel has been refurbished with soft cloths, high-pressure water jets, mild cleaning detergents, clear-coat waxes, and touchless dryers that blow away any remaining water droplets before they attract thirsty cops. The car wash works in tandem with the detail shop, where seasoned technicians shampoo interiors and revivify paint jobs with biodegradable waxes, Rain-X, and Simoniz double-bond paint sealer. In 1995, the staff added a full-service lube shop, an authorized Valvoline Express Care outlet that features transmission flushes, tire rotations, oil changes, and complimentary checkups in between services.
The regularly trained gearheads at Preferred Collision Specialist perform a variety of detailing packages to remove muck and grime from car interiors and exteriors. A hand wash and polish spruces up outside shells and a post-bath glisten is locked in by a final wax. Auto interiors that usually serve as temples for chip crumbs and gum wads get the scrub down with a thorough vacuuming, shampoo, and surface cleaning before a fresh window-wiping guarantees continued access to sunlight and nosy red-light neighbors. Additionally, technicians will travel up to 15 miles from the store to pick up or drop off vehicles.
For more than 17 years, the technicians and sales associates at Nissan of Athens have outfitted motorists with new and preowned Nissans while taking care of cars with maintenance and detailing services. The showroom sparkles with factory-fresh cars, trucks, and SUVs flaunting odometers with plenty of zeros. Preowned vehicles come gift-wrapped in 84-month, 100,000-mile limited warranties that cover 603 components, giving drivers the peace of mind normally found only on roadside psychiatrist couches. The team keeps wheels rolling with factory-recommended maintenance and provides detailing services to keep the miles passing fashionably.
