Nearly three decades have rolled by since Pro Tire Service opened for business. In that time, technology has advanced and cars have gotten smarter—but so have the shop's ASE-certified technicians. The automotive services they offer range from basic maintenance to heavy-duty stuff such as engine overhauls, transmission rebuilds, and journeys into the uncharted territory of on-board computers. Because the DOT now requires all cars to be shod, the technicians fit four-wheelers for tires from BFGoodrich, Michelin, and Uniroyal. And because it's no longer considered humane to turn old batteries into chew toys for teething T-1000s, they recycle them instead. The majority of what Pro Tire Service's people do is backed by a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty, a result of their affiliation with Tech-Net Professional Auto Service.

Though customers at Mr. Phills Auto Spa can’t walk in and receive a facial or a mani-pedi, the car-wash-and-detail center does go out of its way to make them feel comfortable as its staffers skillfully hand wash automobiles and detail interiors. Guests sip on complimentary coffee, cocoa, water, or wine, and calm grumbling stomachs with muffins, bagels, and other baked goods, rather than feasting on discarded air fresheners. Free WiFi and a business center equipped with computers, private offices, and a conference room ensure that businesspeople can stay on top of their responsibilities throughout the day. To accommodate guests who are too busy to stay at Mr. Phills during the detailing process, a free shuttle provides transportation to and from home, work, the golf course, or the Batcave.

Triangle Town Auto Spa makes dirty cars shine with eco-friendly cleaning products while customers shop or run errands. After handing their car to a valet driver at Triangle Town Auto Spa, car owners are free to leave. They'll be informed by text message when their car is cleaned and ready.

In the meantime, detailers tackle the nitty-gritty of automotive cleaning, washing the exterior by hand, running a vacuum across the carpets and mats, and adding spritzes of scented deodorizers. Afterward, drivers won't feel pressured to abandon their shopping or rush out mid-barter, because Triangle Town Auto Spa will gladly hold their cars until they're ready to pick it up.

Meineke Car Care Center's 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.

The drivers at Corporate Level Transportation Incorporated endure all of the annoyances of road travel—traffic, parking, attention that could be paid to something else—so that their clients don't have to. The chauffeurs open doors and load up suitcases before hopping into the saddle of a black sedan or van, and zipping off to destinations such as the airport, a conference, or nightclubs. Passengers, meanwhile, are able to catch up on work, make important phone calls, or sit back and simply enjoy the ride in comfort.
