With lube and service centers spread across America, Valvoline Instant Oil Change ensures that roads from coast to coast teem with automotive vigor. Certified technicians perform a roster of services, including quick in-and-out oil changes that allow motorists to arrive without an appointment and remain in their car while Valvoline oils forge a truce between metal parts. Facilities also encourage odometers to reach up to 300,000 miles with an engine-guarantee program that helps motors live long enough to see tow trucks go extinct. Valvoline extends its care to cars of all makes and models as well as charitable organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
Although Sallas Auto Repair began as a small, two-bay repair shop, owner and ASE-certified master technician Nick Sallas already had enough experience to fill a multifloor garage. Nick's journey through the automotive industry led him through the service centers of General Motors and Honda and included a 10-year ascension up Goodyear's training programs. He opened Sallas Auto Repair in 1993, fusing his experience with his passion for repairing vehicles and saving customers money. More than 20 years later, he and his wife have expanded the small garage into two AAA-approved facilities stocked with 15 service bays and 15 skilled and certified employees.
The staff at both Sallas Auto Repair locations perform bumper to bumper services, including oil changes, preventative maintenance, and most all repairs. Services and repairs in the authorized Napa Auto Care Centers are backed with 24-month and 24,000-mile warranties. During repairs guests relax in waiting rooms stocked with computer stations and free WiFi or take advantage of complimentary rides home should their car beg to spend the night. Sallas’ commitment to cars is rivaled only by its commitment to the community; the shop has supported numerous organizations ranging from the US military to local athletic programs.
Lee's Summit Mitsubishi’s service-department techs perform mechanical magic beneath hoods and undercarriages to keep Mitsubishis and autos of all makes and models running smoothly. Body-shop staffers free car bodies from dents and dings, and well as rotate tires, align brakes, and inspect vehicles for further problems by tapping them with a knee hammer to check their reflexes. Out on the sales floor, friendly sales people introduce visitors to new and used models of Mazdas, Mitsubishis, Volkswagens, and other automobiles.
Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
The trill of an air wrench. The falsetto song of a squeegee against glass. The sounds of a stock-car repair pit drift from JC's Speedy Lube, where crews work to focus that same level of efficiency on vehicles returning to the road. Along with expeditious oil changes, mechanics perform light mechanical work and employ Genisys scanners to diagnose future problems. Visitors wait for their steel steeds to return to them, passing the time in a waiting area with free WiFi, a flat-screen TV, and steaming cups of Keurig coffee. JC's Speedy Lube also collects an ever-changing stable of used cars, which wow prospective owners with low mileage numbers and past owners who never drove them very far back in time.
