The guys who started GNNorthwest felt the need for speed—so much so that they opened a shop that specializes in it. They give rides a boost with turbo and supercharger applications so that they can make even the biggest tires or vintage Stone-Age rock wheels spin. Their 38 years of experience in the industry have also helped them hone their expertise in routine maintenance services, such timing belts and tune-ups.
Mazda of Everett features three classes of inventory: brand new Mazdas, used vehicles, and certified pre-owned Mazdas. Many of the vehicles come fully inspected, and some even include free car washes for life. Meanwhile, in the service department, factory-trained technicians service vehicles with oil changes, diagnostics, and repairs, as well as basic maintenance for most makes and models. Mazda of Everett is also an emission-certified facility.
The trained, experienced technicians at Definitive Detail & Tint dole out a wide range of auto services aimed at refreshing wagons' interiors and exteriors. Each exterior wash ($39.99) is performed by hand, with wheels cleaned and tires dressed, and the interior clean ($39.99) sees the floor, seats, and trunk vacuumed and dashboards detailed. Customers can further pamper vehicles with add-on services such as leather conditioner ($45.94+), paint sealant ($79.95), headlight restoration ($49.99 for the pair), and windshield massages. Interior detailing ($159.99) provides a deep clean for cars’ insides, shampooing carpets and floor mats and scouring vents, instrument panels, and trim. During the roughly one-hour standard detail, waiting customers can entertain themselves by watching the shop’s flat-screen TV or using the free WiFi to update their newly beautified car's Facebook status to “single.”
Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
