Dependable Car Care's crew of ASE-certified technicians invites roadsters to partake of a smorgasbord of preventative and maintenance services. The mechanics kick off the oil change by ruthlessly evicting used-up motor juice and soothing engines with a new filter and up to 5 quarts of 10W-30 lube, which prevents cars from desperately pilfering expensive bottles of olive oil and keeps pistons pumping smoothly. Synthetic oil is available, although customers must pay an extra fee for the luxury of watching it cascade into their engine. After topping off all fluids and adjusting the tire pressure to ensure even tread wear and a safer commute, the technicians complete the 45-minute service with a courtesy vehicle inspection, proving that the car in question is actually a car and not two horses in disguise.
Continuing in the legacy of 40 years of car-friendly service, Paradise Chevrolet's team of vehicle revampers shines up rides inside and out. Staffers hand-scrub vehicles, ridding bodies of grime before shining up paint jobs with a hearty coat of wax. A cleansing steam clean then scours engines with hot, gaseous water to melt away dirty deposits. Technicians finish off the three-hour buggy cleaning by sprucing-up interiors and sudsing-up carpets, leaving cars feeling fresh and ready to drive through mud.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
