Each location's ASE-certified technicians keep autos flourishing with regular maintenance checkups, helping identify and stave off problems before they spread. These experts peer into the dark abyss under the hood, employing high-tech diagnostic tools to identify and repair computerized engine issues, and keep tabs on brakes before they seize up and stop you just as you're about to break the sound barrier. In addition, they guarantee all services for 12 months or up to 12,000 miles.

For those in need of a ride but not looking to buy, the dealership also rents cars, giving customers a choice of vehicles and leaving a mint on each hood.

Yellow and blue signage near the parking lots of shopping malls, offices, and entertainment centers indicates the presence of ProntoWash, a car wash and detailing powerhouse that boasts more than 350 operations worldwide.

Helming special yellow Washing Karts, the company's technicians use biodegradable detergent and about a pint of low-pressure water to render each car clean. They also care for cars by vacuuming carpets, restoring headlights, stuffing multivitamins inside ailing glove compartments, and making arrangements to hit the road with their mobile car-wash service.
