Get your chassis classy in time for rolled-down-window weather with the full-service treatment, including up to five quarts of Valvoline oil, a new Valvoline oil filter, and vehicle lubrication of chassis components (if required).

Customers pay the difference for any excess quarts of oil or certain replacement filters (see the fine print above).
A dedicated staff and comfy service lounge greet customers at Pinkerton Chevrolet's two locations. Both new and gently used GM vehicles such as Buicks, Chevrolets, and Cadillacs grace the grounds, beckoning customers to test-drive them to the nearest deserted go-kart racetrack. Inside, patrons can sip on premium coffee, catch a favorite show on the flat-screen TV, or surf the wireless Internet while their car is spruced up.
Car Lovers Car Wash's touch-free wash douses dirty cars in eco-friendly solutions from Lustra. During the five-minute premium wash, passengers recline in their seats as the touchless system scares away dirt, keeping a safe distance from the finish and saving the frame from scratches, dings, and tickles from mean-spirited brushes. A double-foaming presoak and a laser wash—the high-pressure sprays of which are tweaked to match each vehicle's size and shape—commence the cleansing journey, which leads cars into a serene underbody blasting that liberates the bottom portion of the car from residual filth caused by prolonged exposure to the road. Triple-foam conditioner teams up with LustraShield total-surface gloss to protect and shine the clear coat, and a spot-free rinse honors the auto with the coveted medal of splotchlessness. Power dryers conclude Car Lovers' cleanup with vigorous sneezes that whisk away water droplets before they can muster their forces and create fog on the way home.
Guided through the mechanical morass by two ASE-certified master technicians, Techne Mechanical services domestic and foreign vehicles from compact to colossal. While the vehicle's vital fluids are being transfused, the technicians play a game of musical tires, rotating them around the car until the music stops and the odd tire out gets relegated to the trunk. The car's brakes are also inspected to ensure they can continue in their deceleration duties. Alternately, Techne Mechanical offers a Class-A state inspection to certify the car is road-worthy, environmentally sensitive, and not actually a set of trash-can lids bolted onto a refrigerator.
Power House Auto's car custodians fuel their auto-washing efforts with gentle hand scrubbings and generous dollops of Meguiar's wax. During the service, which can last a couple hours, human-powered cloths work soapy solutions into vehicles' skin, gently wiping away dirt and washing any rashes caused by accidental exposure to diesel. Technicians evoke glistening smiles from tires and wheels with Armor All applications, then coat the car frame in Meguiar's wax, which dutifully shields it from contaminants and smudges while enhancing the shine. Car owners are welcome to relax in Power House Auto's waiting lounge and listen as their cars sing happily in the bath.
