Colorado’s cluster of Midas Auto Service Experts shops have operated under the same local ownership for 30 years. At each location, ASE-certified service technicians care for vehicles in all kinds of capacities, from factory scheduled maintenance measures to extensive repairs on brake systems and engines. With each service, the team exerts the same advanced expertise that has made Midas a recognized industry name since the company’s inception more than 50 years ago at the dawn of time. The community-oriented Colorado service stations also support local philanthropic organizations including the YMCA and the grassroots road-safety campaign, Drive Smart.
The detail-oriented crew at Splish Splash Auto Wash tends to automobiles by blasting their underbodies and shining their tires by hand. In addition to cleaning, they provide detailing services and apply rust inhibitors and surface protectants, which help cars avoid potential future damages and the often-unkind words of children.
For more than 50 years, the skilled technicians at Fry’s Car Care have primped and preened trusty petrol steeds for maximum pavement-pounding performance. During the full-service oil change, an ASE-certified mechanic will replace old, worn-out engine blood with up to five quarts of new Mobil oil and switch out grimy filters with standard, unsullied substitutions. Afterward, the technician will rotate tread-worn tires, which will come in handy when drag racing a neighboring child’s Power Wheel. The appointment culminates with a thorough safety inspection—certifying that each four-wheeled locomotive is healthy and able to transport all passengers and back-seat drivers. Call ahead to schedule your car’s next springtime engine cleaning.
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.
Named the best carwash by CityVoter in 2009, V.I.P. Car Wash restores radiance to road-weary wagons with an uncanny attention to detail. Each V.I.P. wash ferries besmirched buggies through a sudsy sluicing that cleans with softened water to protect the paint and avoid hard-water stains. After cleaning the hood, roof, windows, and doors, the automated sprayers focus on ridding salt and grime from the underbody before applying a rust inhibitor just like a relaxing robot spa treatment. Next, a clear coat conditioner and protectant are applied before a shiny smothering of tri-poly foam polish leaves a glassy coat that’s slick enough to impress dolphins. Rubbery road donuts are treated to a wheel brightener and tire dressing.
