Drawing on half a century of automotive service, the family owned and operated Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigor 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 US 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.
Colorado’s cluster of Midas Auto Service Experts shops have operated under the same local ownership for 30 years. At each location, ASE-certified service technicians care for vehicles in all kinds of capacities, from factory scheduled maintenance measures to extensive repairs on brake systems and engines. With each service, the team exerts the same advanced expertise that has made Midas a recognized industry name since the company’s inception more than 50 years ago at the dawn of time. The community-oriented Colorado service stations also support local philanthropic organizations including the YMCA and the grassroots road-safety campaign, Drive Smart.
Discount Tire’s professional technicians install and service a vast trove of tires and wheels to keep wagons rolling safely. Experienced, trained mechanics manage an inventory replete with tires by brand names such as Goodyear, Michelin, and Bridgestone ($60–$100/tire for most vehicles) and a huge range of wheels ($50–$100/wheel for most vehicles). Proud owners of newly outfitted buggies receive advice on how to improve their rubber-road marriages or ability to do donuts on the lawns of rival librarians. Along with recommendations on products and services, tire installations include new valve stems, road-hazard protection, and lifetime rotations.
Hyundai dealerships chauffeur vehicles through an array of protective maintenance services. Speed demons and carpoolers alike can lengthen the life of their engines with an oil change, replacing up to five quarts of oil to lubricate pistons and joints. Technicians install a new oil filter before rotating tires for even wear and more efficient gas mileage. A quick inspection of brake pads and shoes, wheel cylinders, and your car's secret diary ensures the vehicle's overall road readiness. Autos trailed by dust bunnies and lovesick fast-food wrappers get the royal treatment with a machine wash, eviscerating built-up gunk for a sun-sweetening shine. A quick interior vacuum reveals long-lost carpet and upholstery, and a multipoint inspection checks vehicles for recalled or defective parts.
One day in 1946, Bob Fuller returned home from military service to resume civilian life. By the time the sun had set, he was a business owner. The original location of Fuller's Carwash & Detail Centers, which he claimed with a handshake and a hip twist on that day more than 60 years ago, now serves as the flagship shop, the anchor for a business that has branched out to 11 more locations. Seven days a week, washers lavish cars with soap and special treatment, and detailing services help cars to rediscover their showroom shines. Some locations offer lube and auto centers, with staff technicians ready to remedy mechanical problems and translate esoteric owners' manuals, and convenience stores that stock snacks for drivers and fuel to keep their vehicles humming along as happily as The Little Engine That Couldn't, But Still Stayed Optimistic.
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. These technicians learn their care-care talents during stints in Jiffy Lube University, the company's exhaustive training program. During their training, technicians engage with computer-based learning, apply knowledge during on-the-job-training, and pass frequent skills tests to master the art of engine maintenance. Upon graduation, technicians also take the Jiffy Lube Pledge, vowing to service their customers' cars with the same care they would normally reserve for their own vehicles. This extensive curriculum and commitment to customer service is part of what earned the program accolades as an Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certified Training Provider.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube’s experts perform air conditioning, air filtration, cooling system, electrical, windshield services, and many more. The technicians’ quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services and only complete those services after it has been approved by the owner.
