What began more than 50 years ago as a single auto-repair outlet in Macon, Georgia, is known across America today as Midas Auto Service. The trusted chain of car-repair shops spans 17 countries worldwide, and each location employs a skilled, reliable staff that strives to keep drivers and their families safe. This goal is perhaps best embodied by the Midas Touch Courtesy Check, a service during which technicians check fluid levels and tires for safety and check the area under the vehicle to make sure Robert De Niro isn’t trying to hitch a free ride. Once they've given vehicles the once-over, mechanics can then prescribe any necessary services to keep cars running smoothly, such as brake repair, filter changes, alignments, and engine tune-ups.

Brake-O-Rama began as one location in 1949 but now boasts 14 service centers speckled across the East Coast. Together these automotive hospitals work as a force, repairing and maintaining domestic and imported vehicles of virtually any make and model. Before sourcing spare parts from the company's private warehouses, Brake-O-Rama's ASE-certified technicians thoroughly analyze vehicles with advanced diagnostic technology that includes four-wheel computerized alignment systems, electron microscopes that scan for chipped paint finishes, and magnifying glasses ever in search for clues to Professor Plum's murder. Meanwhile, Firestone, Goodyear, and Michelin tires fill the supply closets, allowing the patrons to tighten their grip on the asphalt before a cross-country trip.
Lodi Hand Wash and Oil Change’s troupe of auto caretakers descend on dusty vehicles armed with microfiber mitts to hand wash the car's surfaces. After freeing the steel steed of dirt, they send the car down the conveyor-bathing system to get a full cleansing with Simoniz’s products, and get a rare glimpse into the mind of a laundry machine. Techs then coat exteriors in protective wax before all water is blasted away with an air-drying system. The auto specialists also perform oil changes, inspections, and tire rotations.
