The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service oil-change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube’s savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians’ quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with Saran wrap.

The straight-talking motor mavens at Big O Tires treat tin lizzies to thorough and efficient emission and safety inspections to meet required safety standards and to ensure four-wheeled friends remain in safe operating condition. During the procedure, specialists not only inspect vehicular form to ensure cars' crucial systems continue to function properly; they also reward qualifying motorists with renewals, updated registration decals, and engine-light decoder rings. Cars, trucks, or motorcycles fewer than 8 years old require safety inspections once every 2 years, and older models should receive them annually. Similar regulations apply to emission inspections, although the qualifier is six years or wafting plumes of black smoke.
