Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
Techna Glass technicians deftly mend and replace damaged windshields with only auto-glass materials that meet or exceed the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. The team fills in nicks and cracks with rock chip repair, which restores auto-glass's structural integrity, or swaps out entire panes with windshield replacements built in Department of Transportation–approved manufacturing plants. Each windshield installed by Techna Glass comes with a lifetime warranty against defects and a yearlong guarantee against breakage caused by highway debris or a game of real-life pinball.

Though virtually anything can fit in a car trunk—golf clubs, emergency flares, a bodybag filled with old clothes for donation—little can rival the echoing bass of an aftermarket stereo system. At Innovative Audio and Styling, technicians trick out trunks with high-quality speakers, carefully embedding them in the side wells to ensure that they leave enough cargo space without sacrificing a clear stereo sound. The same stylish yet practical mindset goes into the installation of every service, from remote-start systems and Bluetooth integration to headlight restoration and exterior styling.
