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 package, which helps promote 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 helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians—all of which 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 offer 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.
According to the team at SunShades, drivers soak up as many or more UV rays during their weekly commute as they might during a day at the beach. This is why SunShades uses Llumar High Performance Window Film, a product that has been recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. Aside from UV protection, the films also reduce glare from the sun and the headlamps other vehicles, block up to 79% of the sun’s heat, and can help keep shattered glass intact after an accident. Unlike even the best Etch-a-Sketch, they boast a scratch-resistant finish, and are warrantied against bubbling or peeling for as long as drivers own their vehicle. The SunShades installers, who are trained and certified by the International Window Film Association, also tint home windows, which can reduce energy costs and keep furniture and house pets from fading.
Most great things have humble beginnings, and Express Oil Change & Tune-Up Clinic is no exception. In its 31-year history it grew to more than 170 locations across 10 states.
