A family-operated car wash since 1927, Bestt cleanses vehicles without direct contact by human hands or machines. Using only fresh water, environmentally friendly cleaning products, and well-mannered ghosts, the regular wash package pre-soaks each auto chassis with two stages of spray-gun treatment before a sudsy application of colourful Rainbow soap. A fresh water wash and drying agent soaks undercarriages as tires slough off street debris and ancient asphalt-bound artifacts. A high-speed air-dry completes the auto priming and prepares customers for a long list of apologies from formerly critical passengers.

Most of the automotive-maintenance services at Pro Oil Change begin with the pop of a hood. The dull sound reverberates around the engine, where trained and certified technicians inspect air filters, replace batteries, refill fluid levels, and inject Valvoline motor oil. Outside the automotive nucleus, they extend their restorative touch toward burned-out headlights and waved-out windshield-wiper blades. All of this unfolds inside their welcoming facility, which accepts all vehicle makes and models and features a waiting room with TVs and complimentary coffee, hot chocolate, or tea.

Recently crowned with a J.D. Power and Associates award for Highest Overall Customer Satisfaction, NAPA AutoPro maintains vehicular health with both diagnostic maintenance and collision repair. A 12-month or 20,000-kilometre warranty guarantees all repairs, and seasonal services nurture autos by securing brakes during snowy months and rubbing aloe into summer’s sunburned paint jobs. Upon request, mechanics can craft a customized preventative-maintenance schedule drafted in response to owner's driving habits, manufacturer’s recommendations, and the current age, mileage, and eating habits of the vehicle.

With more than 1,000 locations scattered throughout 70 countries, Thrifty Car Rental offers customers an expansive selection of rental cars crafted by manufacturers including Hyundai, Toyota, Chrysler, and Dodge. After signing a waiver and being checked for black-market fuzzy dice, licensed drivers with at least 21 years of life-experience can borrow a vehicle such as the economy-size Hyundai Accent ($30–$34/day), mid-size Toyota Corolla ($35–$37/day), or full-size Chrysler Sebring ($40–$42/day). Unlike their smaller counterparts, bigger vehicles—including the Toyota RAV4 ($60/day) and Dodge Grand Caravan ($70/day)—are capable of carrying large amounts of passengers, cargo, and pinatas stuffed with smaller pinatas, and boast an extra mileage fee ($0.20/kilometre) for trips that exceed the kilometre limit.

The dedicated maintenance mavens at OK Tire & Auto clock countless hours of garage time to improve vehicle performance, striving to ensure that every car they encounter is in fit shape to be safely driven. The complete preventative maintenance package begins with an oil change to whet your iron pony's whistle and then moves on into inspection mode. Steering and suspension get a thorough once-over—springs, shock absorbers, struts, wheel bearings, and more pass under the hawk-like gaze of the expert safety-sleuths assigned to the car's case. A monitoring of fluid levels comes next, with transmission, engine, coolant, brake, and power steering measurements keenly recorded, as a clipboard-wielding nurse notes the colour of your vehicle's tongue. No brake goes uninspected and no signal light unflipped as the highly trained technician stealthily circles 'round your mode of transport. Oil leaks, belts, hoses, and water pumps quiver during examination, hoping against hope they'll be up to snuff. Tire pressure receives its due moment in the spotlight, and the exhaust system and muffler pipe up for attention. Finally, the windshield fluid tank opens wide for a top off, and the car's grades are duly recorded, so owners know whether their wee Chevy or baby Toyota gets dessert tonight.

That Car Place's licensed auto technicians scrutinize all makes and models and identify automotive ailments with advanced diagnostic tools. During the oil-change package, engines pull up a barstool and chug up to five litres of 5W-20 or 5W-30 conventional oil into frosty new filter mugs. Hinges and joints receive a soothing, squeak-silencing lube before a visual 50-point inspection checks everything from lights and fluid levels to drive belts and exhaust components. A tire rotation ensures tread patterns wear evenly, and a brake inspection and suspension check helps prevent motorists from parking in the neighbour's pool.
