With America's Best Car Care Plan, ASE-certified technicians keep autos running smoothly by injecting car insides with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional oil (upgrades to synthetic require additional charges) and performing a host of auto-maintenance services. Brake inspections and adjustments grant drivers the peace of mind that cars are safe and equipped for inclement weather and duck-crossing signs that come out of nowhere. Two tire rotations ensure automotive equilibrium can find long-lasting balance and tire grooves wear evenly.
The Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter and up to 5 quarts of motor oil, plus a comprehensive lineup of other vehicle-maintenance checkups, an exterior window wash, and interior floor vacuum. Trained technicians entreat cars to say "Ahh," before quenching automotive thirst with a refill of transmission, differential, transfer-case, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids. A detailed inspection enforces the well-behaved manners of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights. By evenly distributing the weight across each tire, a fresh tire rotation helps to minimize wear and tear, maximize traction, and avoid the need to conceal balding tires with cumbersome toupees. Though Heartland Automotive Services Jiffy Lube sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Two of its graduates were honored as half of the top four installers in the United States, earning the esteem of their peers and a gold medal made from old hood ornaments at the United States Auto Glass Olympics.

During the oil change, skilled mechanics infuse engines with a fresh batch of synthetic-blend motor oil. They also run through a 52-point inspection to check vehicular beasts for potential automotive problems or secretive underbellybutton rings. Drivers may also opt for a tire-maintenance package, which steadies the hooves of a trusted steel steed with a tire rotation and four-wheel balance. Certified as a green station by California's Department of Toxic Substances Control, Bruce Scher's Goodyear implements a number of eco-friendly practices, such as recycling fluids and filters, using water-based cleaners, and replacing electric lift bays with retired bodybuilders.

Terrible Herbst's automated wash tunnel and experienced staff carefully swipe vehicular surfaces clean with eco-friendly Blue Coral products. Each five-minute express exterior car wash starts off as valets escort vehicles to the drive-thru tunnel, which gently gargles cars with a triple-foam polish and clear-coat protectant. After the soft-cloth wash coats circular feet with wheel brightener, a spot-free rinse and air-dry prep vehicles to emerge onto the road as shiny and head-turning as a president with braces. Customers who opt for the Ultimate full-service car washes can augment the express exterior washes with interior-pampering services. During the 20- to 25-minute cleaning, car-caretakers wipe and dust windows, dashboards, and consoles while vacuums devour dirt and precambrian crumbs from carpets. Wheels emerge from the treatment purged of dirt, and tires debut enameled in a protective dressing.
