Both Splash Zone and Hurricane Bay restore allure to befouled buggies with soft-brush automatic car washes. Breadcrumb trails of spark plugs lure vehicles into a computerized prerinse that softens up caked-on mud and grime. After loosening sludge, the car wash blankets soggy sedans in soft brushes, allowing drivers seated inside to imagine that they're being eaten by a shag carpet. The wash then dispatches muck from the entire exterior and shines tires before an automatic dryer blasts away excess water. Drivers redeem their coupons at computerized kiosks outside the car wash and can upgrade to higher-priced washes for an additional fee.
As Super-Lube's name suggests, its signature service is the oil change. Technicians at its more than 50 locations lubricate engines with up to five quarts of premium oil. The comprehensive service, which requires no appointment, also comes with a 20-point maintenance check, and a free fluid top-off between changes. The technicians' handiwork extends beyond oil changes, too?they can change radiator fluid, swap out fuel filters, and replace broken windshield wiper blades.

Founded in 1971 by Dennis “Jake” McGrath and Thomas Carella, Furrin Automotive has expanded over the last four decades from an exclusive Volkswagen shop to a full-blown auto-repair and service center for most foreign cars.

Though the staff offers same-day service on most repairs, the garage dispatches a complimentary shuttle every morning to tote customers to work. Furrin Automotives also teams up with Parkway Wrecker to offer emergency road service 24 hours per day.
