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.

Technicians then rotate the tires to equalize tread wear and tear, before poking and prodding their way through a precise safety inspection.
