Delta Sonic Car Wash renews tarnished transportation with an innovative touchless car-wash system that automatically guides vehicles through a tunnel of high-pressure sprays and overhead buffing cloths. The hands-free wash massages mild lotions into paint jobs, leaving vehicles with sparkling, fingerprint-free finishes that are backed by a five-day guarantee. Detailing technicians do get their hands dirty as they make use of more than 100 hours of training to dote on vehicle interiors and exteriors with products from ValuGard, Aquapel, and Blue Coral. The team wields AOCA certification know-how when injecting engines with oil and devising rustproofing treatments that avoid drilling holes or covering corrosion in zit cream.
Park Hills Car Wash offers quick wash packages, in-depth details, and mechanical services that keep automobiles looking and performing their best. Cars that find themselves the victims of an over-size mud puddle or an over-affectionate oil tanker can shake off the grime with triple-foam polish, wax-poly sealant, and rust inhibitor during a 15-minute wash. Detailers move at a focused pace as they steam clean carpets, hand wax the finish, and narrow in on even the smallest vent, panel, and gauge with dust-busting air blasters. In the lube center, technicians perform full-service oil changes for most makes and models and can also service radiators, transmissions, and tires.
At Bettenhausen Automotive, a phalanx of 25 to 35 technicians is on hand each day, caring for cars and speeding through an average of 480 oil changes per week. The service center welcomes roadsters of all makes and models into its modernly appointed mechanic’s shop. There, techs solve longevity-inhibiting problems and complete factory-scheduled maintenance tasks, maximizing each vehicle’s potential and performance along the way. Helmed by brothers Michael and Troy Bettenhausen, the family-run dealership has been operating for over 50 years and carries a well-waxed inventory of new and used vehicles, including the 2013 Dodge Dart.
The ASE-certified service technicians at Midas brace automobiles for winter during a 60-minute checkup, confiscating spent fluids, replacing them with up to 6 quarts of clean oil, and installing a filter to keep contaminants out. Rotations give tires a change of scenery and keep the tread wearing down evenly, and a brand-new pair of wipers replaces last season's rain-swatters with a fresh set of blades ready for snow. After inspecting belts, hoses, coolant, fluids, and air filters, mechanics stop in on the battery to confirm a healthy charge, and conclude with a visual brake inspection to make sure the car-stoppers can hold their own against slick roads, icy patches, and jaywalking snowmen.
