The mechanics at Fairway Chevrolet restore road warriors by rotating tires, replacing oil, and inspecting important car components during one-hour services. After draining debris-clogged oil from engines, certified techs slick parched auto pistons and joints with up to 5 quarts of a new lubricant. Mechanics rotate rollers so they wear evenly and examine wiper blades, auto glass, and bobbleheads of Henry Ford glued to dashboards during multipoint inspections. Autos trailed by dust clouds and littered with fast-food bags receive an exterior wash and swift interior tidying, which reveals the colors in carpet and upholstery.

Beverly Hills Rent-A-Car places clients in the driver seats of dream rides and luxury chariots. A 24-hour excursion includes 50 miles of traversing, reversing, and literary free-versing in one of three motorcars. The Lamborghini Gallardo seats two as it jets along the speedway behind the awesome might of a V10 engine. Since joining the Lamborghini lineup in 2004, the Gallardo has surpassed all other models in sales, including the legendary Diablo. Luxury enthusiasts may also opt for one of two Mercedes mobiles: the S550 is the flagship of the Mercedes lineup in both style and technical innovation, and the E350 convertible churns up a healthy head breeze with a V6 engine and a V8 juice dispenser.
Motorists can treat their hacking and wheezing motorcar to a trio of oil changes at eOilChange.com's participating auto shops. During each 30-minute service, skilled technicians replace used motor oil with up to 6 quarts of standard engine juice and install a new oil filter to ensure vehicles' veins pump clean, contaminant-free oil. Most autos are welcome, save trucks that weigh more than one ton, and all three services must be performed on the same vehicle. Drivers have 365 days to use all three oil changes at a single location, which means cars won't need to suck fresh oil from vulnerable pump jacks for at least a year.
