As Super-Lube's name suggests, its signature service is the oil change. Technicians at its more than 50 locations lubricate engines with up to five quarts of premium oil. The comprehensive service, which requires no appointment, also comes with a 20-point maintenance check, and a free fluid top-off between changes. The technicians' handiwork extend beyond oil changes, too?they can change radiator fluid, swap out fuel filters, and replace broken windshield wiper blades.
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.
Auto Sound has helped automobiles shun sunrays for more than 19 years. A team of expert tintmasters smooth Suntek film onto each window, which keeps interiors cool while blocking 99% of UV rays and 98% of sidelong glances from hood ornaments. Auto Sound's crew removes preexisting glass tints for an additional $15 per window, and extra fees may apply for porthole darkening on luxury and foreign cars. Optional tinting upgrades ($30/window) can further increase cars' newfound privacy to hide even the most bedazzled steering-wheel cover.
The ASE-certified technicians at NAPA Auto Care Center mollycoddle motorcars with services that help improve performance and extend vehicle life. Old, cantankerous oil is replaced with idealistic young oil, ready to fight the good fight against dirt, heat, and fiendish friction factions, and tire rotation promotes even wear. A tip-to-tank, AAA-approved 80-point inspection tests the condition of everything from battery life to coolant pH levels with a series of Sphinx-like riddles. Owners receive an eight-paneled brochure detailing their car’s inspection results for future reference. In addition to ride-pampering services, NAPA also provides a courtesy shuttle to whisk owners to and fro, reducing instances of vehicular-separation anxiety.
