Pro Drive's expert mechanics, who collectively have serviced more than 50,000 vehicles, will uncork your vehicle, let the dirty oil drain out, and replace it with brand new 10W30 oil and a new filter to match. All vehicle bloods are checked and topped off, and Pro Drive will ensure that all under-hood spinners, twirlers, and hummers are operating correctly. Tires get rotated (and balanced, if needed) and the air pressure is adjusted to meet factory recommendations. During the procedure, which takes about 45–60 minutes, guests can peruse a stack of magazines in the comfortable lobby, sip coffee and water, or grab a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant. Car and driver can rest assured, because all work has a warranty and Pro Drive is BBB-rated A.

Captained by experienced and appropriately attired chauffeurs, Satisfaction Limousine's fleet of limos and party buses escorts assemblages on two-hour treks around the city that can include a survey of The Big, Bright Light Show in Rochester. After drivers pick them up at home, brigades of up to 10 friends, family members, or vacationing monster-truck tires can recline in a Chrysler 300's stretch interior, replete with a color-changing, LED-lit ceiling and bar boasting built-in ice chests. Ultimate party buses fling strobe and laser lights against their mirrored fiber-optic ceiling and ceramic-tile flooring, Twilight limo-coaches nestle ice chests into each of their corners, and Land Yachts situate sturdy dancing poles within their Earth-tone interiors. Deemed one of the city's best Christmas light displays in 2010 by CBS Detroit, the Big, Bright Lights Show returns on November 28 to coat downtown Rochester's buildings and stegosauruses disguised as bridges with more than 1.5 million points of light. The light show runs each night through January 1 from 6 p.m. until midnight. Once each two-hour tour winds down, Satisfaction Limousines personnel safely returns each party home.

At Mobil 1 Lube Express, a troop of trained technicians replaces old oil with up to 5 quarts of new fluid, screwing in a brand-new filter to match. Then, they'll put on their safety caps and perform an inspection—which includes checking fluids, lights, belts, and tires—before turning steering wheels left and asking tailpipes to cough twice. Cleaners equipped with smudge-eradicating suds and dust-hungry vacuums move in next, targeting grime and fingerprint mosaics with a full-service wash and hand dry, vacuuming interiors, and applying Rain-X and triple-foam protectants for extra defense against the elements. An application of rust inhibitor protects metallic veneers from corrosion, and a coating of Bugg Off affords rides a layer of defense against clingy insects and children wearing trendy magnetic vests. Specialists will also blast away crud from carriage underbellies and decorate wheels and tires with sprays of Wheel Brite and a tire shine.
