Xpress Shine Car Wash’s automated tunnel is designed to re-create the gentle touch of human hands—if human hands were able to wash an entire car in three minutes. As vehicles start along the 125-foot conveyor, a biodegradable, high-lubricity foam begins to break up dirt and grime. The eco-friendly system then deploys recycled, low-pressure water and strategically placed cloth ribbons made from spa robes in place of brushing, blasting, or harsh chemicals. Optional surface protectants and a powerful air-dryer array finish the process, after which drivers can use free high-powered vacuums to get the inside as clean as the outside.

More than 20,000 technicians—all of which have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)—service vehicles at Jiffy Lube. In addition to performing oil changes, technicians offer preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical-system maintenance, among others. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
