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.
So confident in his team’s abilities, Joe Martin says they can work on everything from a brand new set of wheels to a Model T. That kind of confidence helped him win 2012 Entrepreneur of the Year as awarded by the Camarillo Chamber of Commerce. And he backs up his statement with ASE-certified mechanics and services that include total vehicle care such as oil changes, transmission repairs, and engine replacements. Besides a complete commitment to his customers, he also commits Bergin’s Automotive to eco-friendly standards as a Green Station certified by the state of California.
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.
Whether they roll in under their own power or hitch a ride on the shop’s towing and transport trucks, cars head to Iron Horse Auto Body for restorative appointments with the team of seasoned repair techs. Mechanics roll up their sleeves and roll out polishes and power tools as they repair dented fenders, restore chipped-off paint, buff exteriors until they shine, and perform other rejuvenating auto services. They also repair and repaint motorcycles dented in collisions or faded by the shadows of Shriners’ fezzes.
At Simi Auto Spa & Speed Wash, vehicles are revived from the inside out with a multistep car-wash package. During the washes, dirt and grime is scrubbed off paint jobs and tires, then debris is vacuumed from carpets and floor mats. Sessions may last anywhere from 15–45 minutes, depending on how many soothing whispers it takes to lure cars into the water. During detailing sessions, staff buff, wax, and polish cars to a professional shine. In addition to cleaning and shining vehicles, Simi Auto Spa & Speed Wash also offers car repair and oil change services.
