With 15 locations and an inventory of more than 3,000 cars, NextCar gets its customers back on the road with speed and ease. They carry cars, trucks, and SUVs from brands such as Acura, Range Rover, and Chevrolet, with models that range from compacts and two-doors to SUVs, luxury vehicles, and hybrids.
The ASE-certified technicians at Charles Automotive have spent the last 37 years neck-deep in car hoods and undercarriages. Their scheduled maintenance checkups, oil changes, and fluid flushes keep cars hugging the road for years to come, and their skilled repair services ensure that engines, transmissions, and brakes operate in peak form. For cars with unsteady traction or insatiable shoe-shopping addictions, technicians pull from a wide selection of new tires and perform rotations and balancing to give them an even gait and a firm grip on slippery roads. Once vehicles have departed the garage full of vigor and fresh fluids, technicians make sure to recycle all used oils and coolants to keep them from harming the planet. The staff also offers pickup and drop-off services at the nearby Metro station for customers temporarily bereft of their trusty rides.
At J's Auto Repair and Service, professional auto mechanics perform automotive services ranging from swapping out motor oil to tackling technical issues. Car owners––often already hassled enough by difficulties with securing alternative transportation and doctor's notes for car high school––enjoy services such as vehicle pick-up and drop-off and appointment scheduling on the company's website.
Committed to the environment as much as they are to customer satisfaction, the auto bathers at Flagship Carwash coddle dusty vehicles with eco-friendly chemicals and the green LEED-certified water system found at their Herndon location. From eight locations across the Washington, DC, area, they vacuum rugs and wipe down dashboards before cars bask in a high-pressure tunnel wash. Technicians also break out the elbow grease for hands-on detailing services, scraping off splattered bugs and tar, buffing exteriors to remove scratches, or spiffing up interiors to obscure werewolf gashes in leather seats. To restore smooth surfaces, they touch up paint on car bodies and remove small dents by popping the metal back into place.
Wielding a master certification in paintless dent repair and collision repair, the founder of Dent Professor leads a school dedicated to restoring dents and dings of all sizes. The crew smoothes away dimples caused by hail, small fender benders, or falling objects, massaging the tarnished area back into a smooth surface without having to repaint. For larger accidents, a team of collision experts restores damaged frames, fixes bumpers, and spray-paints scratched exteriors.
