Tucked in North Carolina's southwest corner, the small town of Bryson City sits amid the woodsy slopes of the North Carolina Smoky Mountains. The bisecting Little Tennessee and Nantahala Rivers create picturesque waterfalls that cascade through the mountainous terrain, a natural setting for outdoor recreation throughout the year. On clear days, one can catch a 360-degree view of the entire range from Clingmans Dome, the highest point in the national park at more than 6,500 feet. In winter, lodgers can take a scenic half-hour drive from the cabins to Cataloochee Ski Area, a challenging downhill course with 16 illuminated trails and slopes. Once all the snow thaws or is exported as ice cubes for Hawaii, whitewater rafting and kayaking become popular attractions at nearby Nantahala Gorge. And Bryson City itself charms tourists with antique stores, handcrafted pottery, and homemade chocolate amid the fetching natural landscape.

Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Express Oil Change & Service Center has treated cars to comprehensive yet convenient oil changes performed in 10 minutes. That tradition is continued today, in 170 shops sprinkled across 10 southern states, each staffed by a fleet of ASE-certified technicians who also submit autos to a range of maintenance and repair services, backed by warranties and environmentally conscious practices.
During the 10-minute full-service oil change, technicians don't just drain and recycle dirty fluids: they also put cars through the wringer by inspecting belts, hoses, and suspension systems, checking air filters, and sleuthing around the undercarriage for looming problems or secret piercings––all while customers wait comfortably in their car. In the service center, they call upon top equipment to rotate and balance tires, inspect brakes, and repair or replace parts, and use level 1 and level 2 computer diagnostics to correctly diagnose all manner of mechanical ailments.
Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigor with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. The skilled team of technicians bolsters vehicular safety through brake checks and primping tires and exhaust valves. They can also perform maintenance checks, diagnostics for engine repair, and tire service, including alignment.
An ASE master technician mans the controls at All Pro Services Tire & Auto Center, a NAPA AutoCare Center and Blue Seal shop. All of the service center's mechanics pack impressive credentials under their hoods, and are well equipped to handle all makes and models of cars, SUVs, trucks, and service vehicle fleets. Brands such as Goodyear, Dunlap, and Valvoline fortify the range of services they offer, from repairing tires to checking cars' belts, hoses, and resting heart rates. While the mechanics fiddle, customers can either catch a shuttle ride to work or retreat to the comfortable waiting room to watch TV, slurp complimentary coffee, and surf the free WiFi.
Husband-and-wife team Marcus and Tonya run Karworkz the old fashioned way: with hard work all done by hand. During services such as basic washes their team whips out the soft cloth and safely buffs cars clean, while complete detailing dolls up autos inside and out, shining everything from tires to ash trays. A multi-talented squad, they can also accomplish headlight restorations that clear away oxidation for brighter illumination, as well as upholstery repairs.
