The vehicle-scrubbing specialists at Paul's Car Wash & Lube Center buff cars to a burnished shine with hand-powered washes. As the half-hour Elite Wash unfolds, cleaning technicians tend to the outsides of cars, bathing them in a sudsy lather and rinsing off caked-on mud, insects, and junkyard magnets. All four rubber rollers gleam after a wheel-brightener and tire-dressing treatment; to care for the rest of the car's body, the staff applies a clear coat sealant and Rainbow wax to leave the exterior protected and shiny. Finally, a vacuum tears through the interior in search of loose filth before a sweet-smelling air freshener settles down to disguise the car's natural factory odor.

Through the panoramic windows of Silver State Trailways' European motorcoaches, passengers watch the highway roll by as veteran drivers chauffeur them between California and Las Vegas. The luxury fleet has made the interstate journey since 1986, along with special trips to Arizona and such California tourist destinations as national parks, Disneyland, and the store where Arnold Schwarzenegger buys his spinach. Seating 31–61 passengers, the air-conditioned buses ease the passing hours with features such as onboard restrooms, reclining seats, and overhead monitors for entertainment. Committed to customer safety, Silver State Trailways keeps in constant touch with its drivers through a state-of-the-art communications system that pinpoints coaches’ whereabouts without having to hire a film-noir P.I. to tail them on horseback.
While RedOx Automotive’s technicians work beneath hoods and scope out engines, customers can keep their own hands and eyes busy with in-house iPads and complimentary Wi-Fi. This is just one example of RedOx's commitment to customer comfort. Another example: the shop provides a free shuttle service, as well as complimentary loaner cars for clients whose vehicles require more than 12 hours of service—which means they can keep on schedule without having to flag down a taxi driver and ask him to call them a limo.
But RedOx Automotive doesn’t want to keep your car that long. That’s why they staff technicians who service engines, transmissions, and electrical systems with the skill and backing of ASE certification. Beyond performing repairs, the shop's staff also sells and installs tires and conducts rotations.
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.
