Performance Plus Quick Lube's team of trained technicians is well-versed in the most common oil myths and uses that knowledge during regular oil changes to transform coughing engines into efficient, long-lasting, high-performance car-hearts. After expunging the contaminated sludge from the engine’s crankcase, the Performance pit crew enlists up to five quarts of Quaker State Enhanced Durability synthetic blend motor oil for a three-month (or 3,000-mile) tour of lubrication duty that eases piston pounding and traps engine dirt in suspended animation. Once they've installed a new oil filter, they'll top off the car's coolant, power steering fluid, and umbrella drink.
Ziebart has had plenty of time to perfect its auto-detailing services: the shop has been in business for more than 50 years. Trained and certified technicians use ultramodern equipment and Ziebart's own brand of products to detail interiors and exteriors, protect paint, and repair scratches. They also tint windows and program remote starters.
The automobile authorities at Seelye Wright of Paw Paw treat cars of all makes and models to a thorough maintenance routine that lasts from 30 minutes to an hour. Talented techs double-check brakes to ensure safe stopping at manatee crossings before subjecting belts and hoses to a thorough physical and refreshing all fluids to prevent vehicle dehydration. After banishing rogue particles with a new filter, engines guzzle fresh-squeezed oil and squeaks are silenced with a fresh coat of lubricant. The buggy revitalization is completed with a full tire rotation, in which rubber rollers play a game of musical wheel-well and treads are inspected for tears, punctures, and hidden stashes of potato chips.
At Crossroads Expert Auto Service, a NAPA AutoCare Center and recipient of the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence, ASE-certified technicians spoon-feed domestic and imported vehicles up to 5 quarts of Shell motor oil. During the 30-minute service, techs drain dreary dinosaur juice, replace it with fresh extract of an oil tanker, and install a filter designed to gobble up any contaminants in sight. Mechanics fire up supercomputer-like diagnostic equipment to test the battery for optimal performance and cold-weather cranking capability, then check that the coolant is prepared to maintain proper engine temperature during the upcoming Winter Age. After inspections are over, techs generate a comprehensive maintenance report card to provide drivers with their vehicle's grades and overall well-being. Crossroads keeps customers occupied in a multitasking lounge area that features complimentary wall-to-wall WiFi.
Drive & Shine's lengthy wash tunnel scrubs muck and mire from auto frames with eco-friendly soaps and nimble-fingered soft foam wraps. During the 10- to 15-minute service, an underbody wash cleanses the car's road-facing parts, and autos beam like a smiling hologram after being lovingly smothered in applications of clear-coat sealant and foam polish. A layer of Diamond Wax projects the radiant luster of the finish far into the future, and Wheel Brite and tire dressing keep the vehicle's rubber boots looking spick-and-span. To keep the interior looking sharp, technicians climb inside to vacuum dirt, debris, and crumbs from the rugs and seats, beat particles out of mats, scrub windows, and wipe dashes and door jambs with soapy foam wraps. Ten percent of Drive & Shine's proceeds will be donated to United Way, an organization that promotes healthy living and helps humans reach their full potential.
