Fresh water and soft foam flies through Cactus Car Wash’s 145-foot tunnel, which gently frees exteriors from dirt and grime using a combination of spinning brushes and touchless technology to avoid scratching paint. Designed to dole out a range of washes, the high-tech channel swiftly and effectively cleans cars from roof to underbelly, shining tires and sealing in newfound sparkle with a triple-foam wax. Drivers remain behind the wheel as cars move to the end of the line, where free self-serve vacuums await to suck up dirt and debris from seats and trunks. For interior jobs, a cleaning crew enlists old-fashioned elbow grease to shampoo floor mats and wipe down dashboards, and gladly chases away lumberjacks looking to steal pine-tree air-fresheners.
What began as a small detail shop 15 years ago has expanded to become Goldwing Autocare, a tire specialist and detailing outfit that works to improve every automotive nook and cranny. Staff experts call on a national distribution network of suppliers to cobble cars with new sets of name-brand tires or luminous rims from a searchable database. Along with comprehensive detailing packages, skilled detailers can armour interior fabrics with a protective Scotchgard coat designed to reduce stains, or shampoo engines and all their connected parts with a sanitizing bubble bath. Technicians also fortify exteriors with UV-blocking Solar Gard window tinting and slather siding in Clearshield to enhance paint's glow and protect it during egg fights with other cars.
Recently crowned with a J.D. Power and Associates award for Highest Overall Customer Satisfaction, NAPA AutoPro maintains vehicular health with both diagnostic maintenance and collision repair.

Upon request, mechanics can craft a customized preventative-maintenance schedule drafted in response to owner's driving habits, manufacturer’s recommendations, and the current age, mileage, and eating habits of the vehicle.

The trophies that line the inside of Royalty Auto Spa’s waiting room gleam, reflecting the care the staff takes when detailing the insides and outsides of each customer’s four-wheeled friend. Using only top-notch products and buckets of elbow grease, the detail-oriented car cleansers doll up dirty road-huggers with sudsy soft-cloth baths, a vacuum session, and a gentle hand dry to protect the coat. While autos undergo their pampering sessions, customers can prop their feet up in the waiting lounge and enjoy a snack or beverage while watching the TV tell knock-knock jokes.
