Fast washes, friendly service, and eco-friendly initiatives converge at Cobblestone Auto Spa. Instead of letting sudsy water seep back into the environment, Cobblestone Auto Spa drains it into a sewage system that strips it of any toxins before it's re-released. Precise computer controllers allow the spa's mechanical washing system to cleanse rides with less water and electricity, and Cobblestone's precise staffers man onsite detailing, express-lube, and windshield-repair centers. Multiple locations further convenience customers when paired with unlimited wash plans, which bedeck windshields with a radio-frequency identification sticker that automatically activates the car wash and any chosen upgrades such as wax protection or an underbelly tickle.
At SSC Auto Repair, teams of tight-knit, hardworking mechanics extend the life of precious vehicles with expert technique. SSC’s technicians ply their trade with the backing of ASE master certification, ably repairing or maintaining customers’ second most costly investment after their multistory treehouse.

In addition to restoring engines from disrepair or treating cars to speedy routine maintenance, SSC Auto Repair manifests its commitment to the community through its relationships with Packages From Home and Salvation Army donation drives.
Shiny cars are a topic of conversation at family dinners for Jonathan Decker and Robert Budenbender. The cousins co-own Top Notch Mobile Auto Detailing, a service that brings cleaning equipment and tools to customer's homes or businesses to perform onsite mobile detailing for motorcycles, cars, RVs, boats, planes, and ferris-wheel stallions. In addition to hand-washing and applying paint sealants, the crew purges grime from interiors and exteriors with car-care products from Auto Magic, Optimum, and Meguiar's.
Big O Tires outfits wheels with tires from Michelin, Goodyear and other trusted brands, all backed by a three-year warranty and a lifetime of rotations. The retailer has been in the road-ready rubber trade since 1962, when it began as a single co-op; over the past five decades, it has blossomed into a network of more than 500 locations, spanning 21 states. The shops’ ASE-certified technicians not only specialize in tires, but also tend autos with a comprehensive array of repair and maintenance services. They deftly change oil, replace brakes, and meticulously administer free 22-point safety inspections, which ensure that headlights work and that wiper blades aren’t actually sleeping rattlesnakes.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with professional brake services including a lifetime warranty on parts, labor and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, suspension repair, and belt replacement.
Dirty cars can pull up to any of Full Circle Autowash’s five locations for a full interior or exterior restoration. An automated wash tunnel doles out four car-wash packages, from a simple exterior wash and interior vacuum to the Platinum treatment, which includes sealer wax, interior-vinyl protection, and leather conditioning. Meanwhile, carnauba wax and clay bars give rides a deeper clean during interior and exterior detailing packages. In addition to sprucing up autos, the Full Circle team also arranges for windshield repairs, installs Solar Gard window film, and replaces old oil with fresh standard or high-mileage synthetic blends. While the team services cars, customers can head to the gift shop to get a snack or pick up a greeting card for their car.
