Motorists can treat their hacking and wheezing motorcar to a trio of oil changes at eOilChange.com's participating auto shops. During each 30-minute service, skilled technicians replace used motor oil with up to 6 quarts of standard engine juice and install a new oil filter to ensure vehicles' veins pump clean, contaminant-free oil. Most autos are welcome, save trucks that weigh more than one ton, and all three services must be performed on the same vehicle. Drivers have 365 days to use all three oil changes at a single location, which means cars won't need to suck fresh oil from vulnerable pump jacks for at least a year.
For more than 30 years, Precision Tune Auto Care's ASE–certified technicians bolster and maintain automobiles of most makes and models with 5W-30 oils. During the 30- to 40-minute service, deft mechanics drain dirty oils from the bottom of the car, funnel in up to 5 quarts of new 5W-30 standard oil, and install a clean filter to make rides run more smoothly than a curling stone gently gliding over a well-oiled seal. Once dry car parts have been adequately slickened, eagle-eyed mechanics examine the car's perimeter during a multipoint inspection, throwing glances toward essential operations to quell safety concerns, confirm optimal performance, and make sure engines think before revving. Precision's customer-waiting area allows drivers to relax their pedal-pressing toes while professional techs service their cars.

With the arrival of its new owners, Touch of Class Auto Care has morphed from a simple car wash into a full auto-care emporium. An auto-glass center, a mechanic's shop, and a detailing studio now collaborate with the wash station to mend nearly any auto ailment. The company's emphasis on hand washes means that only the gentle touch of a human or Hamburger Helper glove graces auto finishes with polish waxes, Rain-X, and tire shines. In-depth detailing tackles more severe blemishes with the help of steam cleaners, and a cadre of technicians stands by to bring out the potential of internal systems such as engines, brakes, and transmissions. Law-abiding rides can uphold their straight-laced ideals by dropping in for a state smog check and then cruise to the glass repair shop for window repairs. For busy motorists, a mobile team will travel to driveways to groom autos using an eco-friendly water-reclamation tank that keeps chemicals from spilling into storm drains or harming skinny-dipping action figures.

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.
