PDQ Car Wash has been cleaning cars and trucks since 1960. The Ultimate Exterior wash restores a car's youthful shimmer with a double pre-soap and a full exterior wash, and the tricolor and clear-coat sealers ensure a lasting shine. An under-chassis flush removes any dirt or gremlins before car pedicurists clean the wheels. The Manager's Special wash begins with an ashtray emptying, dashboard wiping, and thorough interior vacuuming to remove taco crumbs and dinosaur bones. The attention shifts to the auto's exterior as washers set up a pulley-platform system, helping themselves reach every window, apply tricolor conditioner, and de-ice the locks in the winter or after driving into a meat locker. After an exterior wash and under-chassis flush, warm air and towels dry the car as a Victorian shoe shiner polishes its wheels.
The full-service oil change includes up to 5 quarts of Mobil oil, a new oil filter, and a freshly lubricated chassis. Mobil1 Lubes’ experienced technicians will check and, if needed, fill the following parts and reservoirs: air filter, crankcase breather, PCV valve, transmission fluid, power-steering fluid, clutch fluid, windshield-washer solvent, antifreeze, battery electrolytes, wiper blades, lights, vehicle belts, tire pressure, and brakes, extending the lifespan of the vehicle and careless squirrels. Just when you thought the checklist champion reached for the belt, the exterior windows are washed, the interior is vacuumed, and any problems that need further maintenance will be explained. If your road baby demands oil opulence, you can top off oil between services for free.
The hum of a smoothly running engine, the whisper of newly tinted windows rolling up, and the swish of industrious windshield wipers. The ASE-certified technicians at Specialty Auto Sales & Service create this symphony of sounds as they repair and replace vehicular components ranging from troubled engines to phlegmy exhaust pipes. They can also trick out autos with custom work such as tinted windows or high-intensity discharge headlights. In addition to repairs, installations, and basic maintenance services, the center matches drivers with used cars. Its shifting inventory ranges from Fords and Pontiacs to Chevrolets and Saturns, originally developed to zoom around the planet’s racetrack of rings.
Whether it’s a dime-size chip or a completely shattered windshield, the repair technicians at Great Lakes Glass LLC are up to the task.

Each service comes with free disposal and is backed by a national lifetime warranty, but the warranty does not cover stone throwers who live in glass houses.
