Elkins Chevrolet is a restorative oasis in the desert of automotive disrepair, housing experienced service technicians willing to sully their hands replacing up to five quarts of spent engine grease with a fresh batch of sable lubrication. Cars may employ dipsticks as straws, lapping up two oil changes over the course of a year, making today’s Groupon an ideal fit for two-car families or automobiles piloted by squeaky tin men. Customers may upgrade to synthetic, diesel, or imported olive oil for an additional fee.
Finish Line 38's ASE-certified techs lube and oil autos and mend worn-down vehicles with repair services. They also offer extensive car wash and detailing treatments with options such as hand waxes and paint restoration. Dedicated to their customers, the team will even hand wash oversized autos at no extra cost.
Cars roll away from the checkered exterior of East Gate Car Wash & Lube Center renewed by the shop’s wash, detailing, and maintenance services. Washes rinse away recently acquired roadway gunk with paint-safe soaps, while applications of sealant and rust protector guard cars from long-term damage. To restore vehicles' health without feeding them an apple every day, technicians swap old oil for new in the facility’s garage, the same place they perform routine maintenance on tires, tweak engines systems, and regulate fluids. An onsite lounge placates waiting patrons with cups of complimentary coffee and a convenience store stocked with snacks, drinks, cards, and car products.
Race Track Auto Spa & Lube uses a soft-touch cleaning system to gently restore cars to their natural states of sparkle. During "The Works" washes ($20 each), high-speed matter transporters receive triple foam soapings, hand-towel pat downs and polishings, and clear coats of protective wax to seal in freshness. Floors and seats are vacuumed, the dashboard is wiped, windows are cleaned and defogged, and doorjambs are cleared of dirt and actual jam. Each wash includes an undercarriage wash and wheel treatment. Drivers on the go can pamper loyal speed wagons with an express wax, completed in 30 minutes or less ($29.95), with an added Rain-X windshield treatment ($5), which breaks up hostile sheets of precipitation into manageable, bite-sized water beads.
