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, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
At Lavaggio, each car gets pampered, whether it's undergoing a custom hand wash or a thorough interior and exterior detailing. Mitts made from lambswool gently remove debris from the exterior. Deionized water rinses away suds from eco-friendly cleaning solutions, and soft microfiber towels rub them dry without scratching or leaving rug burns.
This pampering service also extends to the car owners. While they wait for their cherished vehicles, clients stretch out on cushy leather couches to watch television or nibble on croissants. At the marble-topped business center, they can settle down with a Mac to catch up on work or tweet about how good the croissants are here. Busy guests can have the concierge arrange for shuttle service, make dinner reservations, and even check on movie showtimes. Outside, customers sit on the sunny patio alongside a bubbling waterfall as they admire the Spanish-style architecture.
Don and Rick Wood, owners of Cooks Collision, can trace their auto-repair roots back to the 1930s. Their grandfather, Clyde, built cars for Ford Motor Company and later started his own body shop, where he passed his knowledge on to his son, Bob. After working as a body-shop manager for Saltnes Volkswagen, Bob took out a mortgage against his family home and purchased Cooks Auto Body, fulfilling his dream of starting his own shop?just like his dad. Today, Don and Rick carry on the family legacy with more than 30 locations, dozens of employees, and one magical vintage racecar. Their ASE-certified mechanics are factory-certified by Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Jaguar, and Volvo, and they repair around 30,000 cars each year.
