Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box filter; a checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights.
Posh Carwash keeps cars, trucks, and SUVs gleamingly grime-free with a beautifying battery of equipment and specialized products. Suds your street steed with a comprehensive cleaning that includes an exterior wash (by hand in Stratford, by machine in Bridgeport), an underbody wash, an interior vacuuming, and a thorough de-gunking of the windows and dashboard, helping to ensure a hygienic hangout for germ-conscious GPS guides. Like the haute armor worn by foppish knights of the Middle Ages, sealer wax and tri-foam polish deliver a combination of protection and pulchritude, while Wheel Brite rim cleaner and a tire shine combat the kicks of curious car shoppers.
Unlike swimming, nobody learns to fly by being thrown in the deep end. Instead, it takes gradual instruction to teach students the controls and feel of an aircraft guided by their hands. Luckily, instructors Antonio Ferrara and Zachary Barrett specialize in that sort of slow-burning scholarship. Both men make their living with their heads in the clouds. Ferrara flies for a commercial airline, ferrying passengers across vast distances in enormous jets. Barrett also possesses his commercial pilot's license, along with an FAA Flight Instructor certification.
At Affordable Aircraft & Flight Instruction, LLC, the duo helps fledgling flyers find their sky legs with discovery flights and group ground school. They also teach longer courses, guiding students toward certifications as private-, multiengine-, and commercial-rated pilots.
Wielding know-how gained during years of service and training with Ford factory technicians, Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center's seasoned mechanics mend ailing autos with preventive maintenance, collision repair, and internal repairs. After securing an appointment with the shop’s online scheduler, autos roll past the dealership’s new and used Fords, Lincolns, and Mercurys and into a fully equipped service bay. The service staff also maintains full Saturday hours to combat taxed schedules and cars with a clinically diagnosed fear of weekdays.
Personal Touch Car Wash has been bolstering engines and beautifying car façades for 30 years. During the roughly 25-minute oil change and car wash, technicians fill autos with up to 5 quarts of conventional oil (synthetic available for an additional fee), install a filter, and inflate the tires to their specified pressure. After a chassis lube protects steering and suspension systems from premature wear caused by friction, techs check windshield wipers to confirm that blades fit correctly and growl whenever they hear the phrase “chance of precipitation.” Techs top off below-level fluids, check lights, hone in on belts, and ogle hoses to ensure safety. Speedy car washes liberate vehicles of outer dirt and grime as cleaners sniff out interior debris with a vacuum. A window cleaning parts the clouds on filmy glass, and techs tidy up doorjambs before cleaning tires and rims. The service concludes with a towel dry, leaving cars shiny, confident, and free of tears.
