Mark’s Super Service Center has maintained automobiles for 25 years, staffed by experienced ASE-certified mechanics. To keep the oil inside an engine fresh and the engine surrounding the oil un-melted, Mark’s oil change drains away gunk-filled lubricant and refills the engine with up to five quarts of new oil (engines that require more oil will incur an extra charge), and swap out the vile, disgusting used filter for a pristine new one. Technicians will also lube the chassis and inspect the air filter, hoses and belts, and give the vehicle a 29-point inspection and diesel-flavored lollipop.
At Tuffy's, motor-vehicle caregivers spruce up patrons' horseless carriages and prepare them for a new season of dutiful service. After installing a new oil filter, auto artisans remove the old sludgy glop clogging the car's arterial system and replace it with up to five quarts of Valvoline 5W-30 or 5W-20 conventional motor oil (a $31.99 value; diesel or synthetic oil costs extra). The staff will also rotate tires to prepare four-wheeled wonders for safe gliding (a $12 value) and make sure air-conditioning systems function properly to bring riders to the brink of coolness faster than Fonzie’s leather jacket ($9.99). Finally, a pair of fresh wiper blades (up to 22")—grown locally by organic-blade farmers—supplants worn-out window-rubbers ($22) and a specialist conducts an extensive 41-point maintenance inspection.
Hoover the Mover's professional auto caretakers sustain the well-oiled integrity of vehicles with a brief yet detailed inspection and oil change. To begin the 15–30 minute treatment, the mechanical medics swap out the oil and filter, prolonging engine life while erasing years of smoked cigarettes and grizzled voice-overs from its voice. During a thorough 27-point inspection, the technicians turn a discerning eye to the vehicle's vital systems—assuring that the brakes, lights, hoses, lines, and filters are functioning, and that GPS maps are folded properly.
Around the parking lot, a platoon of new and certified used Hyundais stands ready to ferry their new owners home from Hendrick Hyundai North. Inside, the dealership’s service and parts departments bustle with auto technicians who work to fix brakes, check batteries, change motor oil, and install even-larger monster-truck wheels.
The Ford-factory-trained technicians at Summerville Ford pre-empt engine trouble by slaking cars' thirsts with Motor-craft synthetic blend motor oils. During the 20-30-minute oil change, customers can recline in the lounge, connect to the free Wi-Fi, and auction off their jumper cables as the techs drain dirty oils from the car and replace them with up to five quarts of synthetic blend oil and sub in a new filter. Technicians reposition rubber to ensure even tread wear during the tire rotation, and they scan for hazards to the car's safety, performance, or self-esteem during the multi-point inspection that follows. The facility's free shuttle whisks drivers to their destinations if they opt for further services.
With a combined 150 years of automotive experience, the experienced technicians at Mcelveen Chevrolet have been facilitating trouble-free joy rides with skillful oil swaps and tire services since 1978. During the oil change, mechanics confiscate grimy fluids and beer-scented air fresheners from the car's inside pockets before sending clean motor oils marching in quart by quart. Nitrogen service trades conventional tire oxygen for Nitro Fill nitrogen, an air alternative that boasts better fuel economy, longer-lasting tire pressure, and increased tire life.
