Founded by a truck enthusiast in 1991, Chux Trux has blossomed into a highly recognized one-stop shop for car, truck, and jeep accessories and services. Trained Chux Trux technicians professionally install enhancers such as bed covers, steps, and chrome accessories, transforming standard vehicles into gleaming road warriors. Customers can browse the cavernous showrooms teeming with an array of custom wheels and tires as well as contractor necessities such as toolboxes, whistle music books, and ladder racks. The Chux Trux staff treats customers like family, special ordering and custom fabricating hard-to-find parts, remembering customers' birthdays, and never letting them live down their sixth-grade talent-show act.
Frank Ancona Honda has been open for over 50 years as a go-to spot for new and pre-owned automobiles. Inside of the showrooms, brand-new Honda sedans and SUVs sparkle with straight-from-the-factory finishes, full of futuristic features and pristine odometers. Meanwhile, all sorts of makes and models, both foreign and domestic, dot the pre-owned lots. And in the service center, technicians perform small- and large-scale repairs, oil changes, and complimentary car washes while customers take advantage of the waiting lounge or private room to get some work done or delete their 'car for sale' classified ad. Those who can't stick around can hop aboard the shuttle for a convenient ride to work.
What started as a single gas station and garage in 1963 has since expanded into an eight-location tire-and-repair shop, adept at handling all things automotive. Burnett Automotive welcomes drivers across Johnson County and Manhattan to stop in for preventative maintenance services, including brake inspections and fluid flushes. A routine oil change include a thorough inspection of the battery and fluid levels, and an examination of the trunk for any hitchhiking spare tires. Beyond service jobs, Burnett Automotive also outfits rides with brand-new tires and equips drivers with a bevy of tire information, including maintenance and safety.
An open garage can attract many things—raccoons, neighbors, determined salesmen—but for Rodney Bruce it attracted dirty cars. Having worked at several dealerships since 1976, Bruce was familiar with a variety of detail techniques and could speak fluent Chevrolet. So in 2004, he decided to open a detail shop inside his two-car garage. Two successful years later, he moved his shop to its current and roomier location where he augments his detail services with hand washes and a repertoire of car-cleaning tools, including steam cleaners, orbiters, buffers, and 100% cotton terry-cloth towels.
Auto Care Super Saver relieves car owners of some expenses and fretting with a convenient bundle of maintenance services redeemable during the course of a full year. ASE-certified mechanics keep joyrides running smoothly with three oil changes that each include up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a filter. Weary autos also get pampered with two tire rotations, which even out wheel wear and tear. The check-engine-light service illuminates the source of problems in your iron beast's belly, and the brake inspection reveals any stopping problems and gains customers a $25 discount on brake servicing. In addition, an air-conditioner performance test cleanses the car's circulatory system to keep vents from spewing heat or fully formed snowmen. Customers can unleash the services upon any of their vehicles, both foreign and domestic, whether they be station wagons, sports cars, or feral merry-go-round mounts.
Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box filter; a checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights.
