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. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
Autoscope Foreign Car Care's factory-certified technicians detail and service nearly all European makes and models, including Audi, Mercedes, and Jaguar. At the two Dallas locations and the one in Plano, they execute plans to fix everything from cooling systems and brakes to engines that foolishly thought they could, stamping each car's maintenance book to keep the original manufacturer's warranty valid. They also hand wash and vacuum every car that comes in for a service. However, the shop's team can perform a more thorough cleaning with detailing services, scrubbing frown lines from bumpers, peeling off contaminants such as tree sap and bugs, waxing, and completely cleansing cars inside and out.
Pockmarked vehicles retain the even tone of their exterior color with Doc Hail's paintless dent repair. To repair dings caused by hailstones or driving through the middle of a heated tennis match, the technicians employ a technique in which paint removal, and therefore tricky color matching, is unnecessary. Doc Hail is so committed to satisfaction, that they even think the stress of having your car repaired should be unnecessary.
Sam Meineke opened his three-bay muffler shop in 1972 with a single product line, and through time, he and his successors have expanded the business into a complete automotive car-care center. Today, nearly 900 franchise owners operate their locations around the globe, still standing on the firm foundation of Sam's ideal of nursing vehicles back to health at fair prices. Meineke Car Care Centers’ mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
A line of BMWs, Porsches, and Rolls-Royce luxury saloons dominates the pavement, the sun glistening off their shining bodies and attracting even the shiest eye. This isn't the Geneva Motor Show, but rather the grounds of Dallas European Auto, where certified master technicians nurse ailing European autos back to health. After free estimates, they go to work, with services ranging from brake-system checks and drivetrain work to heating and cooling calibration. Though they specialize in tinkering with autos from Western Europe’s finest constructors, they can also deftly service domestic cars, imports from other regions, or Yugos moonlighting as bumper cars. Shuttles pick up and drop off customers as they wait for their trusty autos to emerge from the garage, and a no-charge pickup and drop-off service scoops up rides within a 5-mile radius.
