D-Men Auto Detailing's techs meticulously scour horseless carriages inside and out, ridding them of salt and grit accumulated during winter travels. Tackling interiors, skilled hands scrub down carpets and headliners. Leather seats then luxuriate in revitalizing conditioners, and consoles and cup holders relinquish their coveted stashes of fossilized lattes.
Technicians at All American Tire & Service Co.—an ASE-certified facility—keep cars running with booster shots of synthetic-blend motor oil. Cars guzzle up to 5 quarts of high-grade oil during each 30- to 45-minute service, surrendering their old oil in the hopes that their engine reenergizes as their heartburn ceases. Technicians affix a clean filter to the engine and apply lubrication before inflating tires to their proper levels. Finally, a 55-point inspection leads techs around the car's vitals in order to diagnose safety or performance issues. During the examination, the mechanics inspect components and parts to verify that everything is in working order and nothing is working undercover for a bicycle gang.

The technicians at Eastern Hills Automotive de-grime, buff, and polish grubby vehicles with hand detailing services. During a one-hour interior detail, jalopy cleaners shampoo carpets before scrubbing cloth seats and clipping the toenails of suction-cupped stuffed animals. They will also gently cleanse and condition leather, vinyl, and wood surfaces. The exterior detail's two-hour service starts as technicians hand wash entire auto-body surfaces, resparkling windows and dressing tires before buffing on Meguiar’s wax and applying protective paint sealant. Auto owners who opt for the VIP detailing package get all of the aforementioned services, ensuring cars' insides and outsides sparkle more than a diamond baron’s scepter.
