Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corp., Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto accessory and detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations in 30 countries. Performing everything from window tinting and professional detailing to electronics installation, Ziebart's experienced staff cares for cars with high-end products, including seasonal paint protectant and the company’s renowned rust inhibitors. To protect cars inside and out, Ziebart technicians also install accouterments such as alarm systems to thwart thieves and sunroofs to thwart unflattering film negatives from processing correctly (services may vary by location).
Though they ham it up in the shop’s amusing commercials, A&A Auto Services’ ASE-certified master technicians know that their commitment to expert full-service maintenance is no laughing matter. Itemized breakdowns of each service keep customers informed of procedures ranging from transmission flushes to computerized engine analyses, and new parts from ACDelco keep cars filled with quality components. A licensed Goodyear dealer, the shop fills its sun-soaked showroom, with treads ready for shifts on discerning car rims. Whether work commences on weekday shifts or during Saturday appointments, the shop cultivate a crop of convenient amenities, including after-hours drop-offs, a free shuttle, and complimentary WiFi for friending the shuttle driver on Facebook.
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.
The technicians at Cooler In The Shade polish and protect cars and trucks with detailing services and electronics-installation upgrades. With a perfectionist’s eye for detail, techs can use 3M paint-protection film to block out detrimental glare from the sun and headlights with window tinting, which also deflects harmful road debris. Security and remote-starter systems from ScyTek Electronics pack basic automobile functions into pocket-size key fobs, allowing drivers to warm up their vehicles and dashboard espresso brewers while remaining indoors.
Attention to detail has two meanings at Top Gun Auto Detail. It describes both the shop's staff and the praise cars receive after being cleaned so meticulously. During interior detailing services, technicians tidy dashboards, consoles, steering wheels, and trunks. Armed with products by 3M and Malco, they shampoo upholstery and condition leather and vinyl, making it as soft and smooth as a kitten playing a soprano saxophone. Exterior services range from washing and hand waxing to headlight restoration and light bodywork.
