Regular customers know not to pull up to Reflections - The Ultimate Car Wash on a rainy day. The car wash is closed when it rains, due to its "common sense" weather policy, and the fact that thunderclaps make most vehicles anxious. The rainy day closures only serve to ensure that customers get the most out of their wash; the automated system returns a showroom-like shine to car exteriors with chemicals that are gentle on painted surfaces. To ensure automotive insides gleam as brightly, all full-service washes also include a thorough wipe-down of the interior, while detailing services return rides to near-factory-issue state. And because Reflections understands that it can be hard to schedule a service during the week, they offer a shuttle service so that customers can make it to work and back after dropping their cars off in the morning.

Veterans of the Ford and Lincoln motor business for three generations, the Stivers family has been servicing healthy and ailing autos since 1924.

Additional fluids are then capped just below spill levels, followed by a tire rotation to ensure even wear and tear, and an equal number of curb hugs. Crews conclude their Henry Ford–inspired probing with a 21-point inspection that checks for sneaky problems murmuring below your car's steel exterior and fragile ego.

Haigler Auto Service, certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, has doctored Montgomery’s domestic and imported road warriors with premium care and honesty since 1908. During an oil change, the seasoned fleet of adroit professionals flushes out old oils and replaces them with fresh batches of Valvoline or Castrol oil freshly squeezed from gears plucked right from the vine (synthetic oil is available for additional fee). They then separate wheels from their axles, shifting them around in a game of musical tires to ensure even wear and tear. The 75-minute process then concludes with a wheel balancing for a smooth drive devoid of irksome vibrations or clumsy Dick Van Dyke stumbles over garage ottomans. Haigler offers a Carquest guarantee, as well as a one-year warranty on all work.
