What began as Tulsa native Ted Robertson's humble downtown garage in 1962 has earned its place as a local automotive institution, where ASE-certified mechanics ensure long engine life with expert maintenance, repair, and tire services at all 11 Robertson Tire locations. Members of the Robertson family still proudly oversee the business, celebrating a half-century in operation, three generations of family ownership, and a mantel dangerously overflowing with awards. Tires from renowned brands such as BFGoodrich and Hankook?as well as fuel-efficient models from Michelin and Goodyear?cap car axles with firm traction and computer-balanced fits, and flushes, repairs, oil changes, and inspections keep engines purring. In addition to repairing cars, trucks, and utility vehicles, the community-minded staff supports local and national charities such as Operation Smile and reduces carbon tire treads with eco-friendly products and tires.
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, battery maintenance, 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.
Since 1982, expert technicians at Window Tinting By Rita have protected and beautified automobiles with precise, machine-cut films of UV-blocking tint. The fully insured shop outfits the windows of cars, trucks, big rigs, and SUVs with darkened hues that reduce solar heat by up to 74% and stops up to 99% of ultraviolet damage. With windows decked out in sleek, shady tinting, AC systems conserve precious energy in the summer, and interior upholstery won't fade, damage, or peel after getting a sunburn.
Express Oil Change’s experienced technicians help cars maintain their vigor with quick oil changes. Car caretakers dump up to five quarts of fresh oil into engines, defaulting to conventional fluid unless customers shell out extra pennies for an upgrade to semi-synthetic or full-synthetic oil. During the 20- to 30-minute service, technicians will also top off fluids, check the air filter, and inspect belts, hoses, lighting systems, and vehicular underbellies. In addition, wheels find themselves firmly lodged in new positions after a tire rotation, which thwarts uneven tread wear. If cars need further attention, Express Oil Change's mechanics will perform any additional same-day service, such as fuel-pump replacement or the installation of stealth wings, at 10% off the regular price.
