The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service oil-change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle.

More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube’s savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians’ quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with Saran wrap.
To showcase the skills of his talented detailers, Andrew went on a mission. The owner of Custom Car Detail began searching for the Chevy Camaro his father drove when Andrew was a boy. Although his dad had sold it several years before, Andrew tracked the roadster down through assiduous work. What he saw both heartened and dismayed him. The car was in a state of disrepair, with a crunched front fender and a fading paint job. Where many might have seen broken childhood memories, Andrew saw hope and revived the car to what it is today. Custom Car Detail's main goal is customer service and they strive for perfection in every detail.
Each of Brake King's five locations staff ASE-certified techs who coddle engines with clean oil and bring frazzled wheels and frames into perfect alignment. During each 20- to 30-minute oil change, engines exchange swampy old muck for up to 5 quarts of clean synthetic crude, along with a new filter, guaranteed to keep out clogs caused by incoming dirt, debris, and corn dogs. Technicians then rotate the tires to equalize tread wear and tear, before poking and prodding their way through a precise safety inspection.
