The professionally trained drivers at A1 American Limousine chauffer passengers in a fleet of fancy carriages, easing airport transit or spicing up special events. Luxury sedans whisk travelers to O'Hare or Midway from downtown ($65 to/from either airport) and suburban destinations, such as Oak Forest ($70 to/from either airport), Park Ridge ($40 to/from O'Hare; $60 to/from Midway), and Deerfield ($45 to/from O'Hare; $70 to/from Midway). To sooth stresses after long flights, clients can opt for shuttle service from either airport to a destination of their choosing. When patrons touchdown, car conductors will be waiting in terminals with signs showcasing the passenger's name and a sketch of what the driver imagines the customer to look like. Once the sign attracts the proper person, the chauffer will carry the client's cargo to the car, and motor off to the specified destination. Even though the prices listed are base prices, customers should call ahead for personalized rates.
Hyundai dealerships chauffeur vehicles through an array of protective maintenance services. Speed demons and carpoolers alike can lengthen the life of their engines with an oil change, replacing up to five quarts of oil to lubricate pistons and joints. Technicians install a new oil filter before rotating tires for even wear and more efficient gas mileage. A quick inspection of brake pads and shoes, wheel cylinders, and your car's secret diary ensures the vehicle's overall road readiness. Autos trailed by dust bunnies and lovesick fast-food wrappers get the royal treatment with a machine wash, eviscerating built-up gunk for a sun-sweetening shine. A quick interior vacuum reveals long-lost carpet and upholstery, and a multipoint inspection checks vehicles for recalled or defective parts.
A A C Auto Clinic's ASE-certified technicians work to keep drivers safely and smoothly rolling across American roadways. During an oil change, mechanics replace motors' used oil with up to 5 quarts of 10W-30 oil, quickly screwing in a new filter when the car's not paying attention. For those who choose the first option, a tire rotation switches wheels around so rubbery soles can take turns being in front and avoid uneven wear and tear. Technicians can also install a new set of wiper blades (up to 21" long), which help drivers see the road while driving through snow, sleet, or Rain Man posters. During the 30–45 minute service, the shop's play area distracts kids as well as adults who are still children at heart.
The ASE-certified technicians at Petersen's Auto Body deftly smooth out dents, banish scratches, and refinish paint jobs with computerized color matching and DuPont auto paints. The techs perform paintless dent removal on exteriors to pluck out concave craters and stabilize the surface (frame work $75/hour), or refinish frames using computerized color-matching technology so cars can glow with a dazzling sheen or match the jersey of their driver's favorite debate team (paint work $50/hour). To combat scratched paint marring an auto's surface, techs meticulously restore frames to uncorrupted veneers. Repair duration varies depending on the damage, but the helpful mechanics can arrange for a local business to drop off a rental car or elephant minutes after patrons and their vehicles arrive (separate fees apply).
