Texas Toyota of Grapevine boasts an inventory of new Toyotas and used vehicles, sold and tended to at the dealership. Under the new management of Chris Grady, the business helps road-ready customers buy cars in two hours, and experienced technicians and a parts-and-service staff keep cars as healthy as a newborn Flintstones vitamin.
Tell us about your business.
We will clean your vehicle and pay attention to the little details that we know make your vehicle shine and become an extension of who you are. A clean vehicle is a joy to drive, brings a smile to your face, and reminds you of the reasons you purchased it, whether it was yesterday or many years ago. We are willing to go the extra mile once we get to your home or place of work.
What makes your business stand out?
Because my husband is a retired military vet, we chose to open a small business that allows us to work together with the same integrity and attention to detail that we learned in our time as a military family. We are a "can do" family that is willing to put the elbow grease in to succeed and make our customers happy.

Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigour 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. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to U.S. EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
Tint World is more of a one-stop auto-enhancement shop than their name would suggest. They offer world-class tinting, of course, but also upgrade rides with audio and video equipment. To protect vehicles' surfaces from enduring scratches and dings they can apply clear bras and protection films. They can also customize wheels, rims, and vehicle wraps, as well as install auto security alarm systems. They care for more than cars, though, providing many of the same services for boats and yachts. Truck-drivers can accessorize with lifts, light bars, and brush guards. They even offer window film services for homes and commercial buildings.
Propelled by a 150cc, four-stroke, air-cooled engine, the Buddy 150 International scoots drivers around at speeds surpassing 65 mph with a fuel efficiency of more than 90 mpg. Its automatic transmission ensures drivers enjoy a smooth ride, freeing minds to focus on bocce-ball strategies while juggling simultaneous conference calls. Underseat storage can fit medium-to-large-size cats, and the scooter’s curvy, retro appearance is complemented by each of the three color-combination options: Italia green/cream, Pamplona red/cream, and St. Tropez blue/cream. The scooter's warranty covers two years of unlimited, worry-free, windswept cruising, along with two years of roadside assistance.
Celebrity Car Wash and Maintenance Center opens its work bays to vehicles in need of aesthetic and performance upkeep. The full-service shop features a tier of car-wash and detail services that eject road grime from paint jobs and Swamp Things from passenger seats. ASE-certified mechanics stand at the ready in the lube-and-maintenance shop, where they stage tune-ups and revive rides with products from Pennzoil and Zak Chemicals. While they wait, auto owners can surf the free WiFi at the computer bar, grab a cup of Starbucks java, or stare unblinkingly at TVs.
