Express Oil Change and Service Center has spent more than three decades catering to the needs of man's best mechanical friend. In this time, it has managed to spread across 10 states, much like the Guinness Book of World Records's largest blanket, taking its no-pressure modus operandi and penchant for recycling oil to more than 170 locations. The shop's ASE–certified technicians ply their trade with a cybernetic hybrid of high-tech computerized equipment and old-fashioned friendliness, maintaining the optimum efficiency and safety of engines with thorough oil changes, tire rotations, and maintenance packages.
Trophy Ford's experienced auto attendants keep vehicles road-ready and purring happily with Motorcraft 5W-20 synthetic-blend oil and a sharp set of water-wickers. In about 30 minutes, a mechanic funnels away used fluid, adds up to five quarts of new lubricating liquid, and completes a thorough inspection of your car's systems, components, and clown capacity (a $24.95 value). As auto-experts explore the vehicle's interior and exterior, they pinpoint the origin of any leaks and cracks beneath the hood or behind the tape deck. Outfitted with brand-new wiper blades (a $20 value), street schooners can enjoy streak-free visibility and a dramatic decline in barnacle buildup.
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.
Riverside Ford Lincoln's factory-trained mechanics specialize in helping drivers get more mileage from their motors, employing service that earned them a 2009 President's Award from Ford Motor Co. During each treatment, vehicular technicians plumb the depths of the engine and restore its reservoir with up to 5 quarts of fresh oil. Then a team of car cobblers rotates tires to balance tread wear and check for signs of hoof disease.
