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. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car?it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, battery maintenance, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
What began as Tulsa native Ted Robertson's humble downtown garage in 1962 has earned its place as a local automotive institution, where ASE-certified mechanics ensure long engine life with expert maintenance, repair, and tire services at all 11 Robertson Tire locations. Members of the Robertson family still proudly oversee the business, celebrating a half-century in operation, three generations of family ownership, and a mantel dangerously overflowing with awards. Tires from renowned brands such as BFGoodrich and Hankook?as well as fuel-efficient models from Michelin and Goodyear?cap car axles with firm traction and computer-balanced fits, and flushes, repairs, oil changes, and inspections keep engines purring. In addition to repairing cars, trucks, and utility vehicles, the community-minded staff supports local and national charities such as Operation Smile and reduces carbon tire treads with eco-friendly products and tires.
Flawless Auto Works specializes in making auto bodies shine and motors purr. Staffers use an artist's touch when detailing domestic and foreign vehicles: every wash, drying, and wax is done by hand using soft microfiber and chamois cloths. This by-hand technique prevents scratches and other exterior damage that may occur when using a machine to wash autos. Vacuuming clears dust from every crevice, and chemical treatments fortify leather and vinyl upholstery. The auto shop also specializes in preventative maintenance, and can restore headlights and paint jobs to their factory-floor shines. And because detailers aren't paid commission, customers don't have to worry that their vehicles will receive a rush job.
M. Detail and Spa brings more than 15 years of experience along with its professional tools as staffers detail rides from motorcycles to yachts from the comfort of their home driveways and marinas. Employing a meticulous human touch for the majority of each detailing session, techs treat vehicles to standard services, such as washes, tire dressing, and window cleaning, before stepping inside to vacuum interiors and whisk away dust left behind from chinchilla copilots. Deluxe detailing adds carpet shampoos, Rain-X treatment, and waxing, to the cleanup regimen. M. Detail and Spa also washes away dirt and mildew from home decks and patios.
Tinting specialists, graphic artists, and detailers have joined forces under Superior Tint and Graphics' roof with a single vision: to make cars cooler. They infuse rides with mystique using ceramic window-tinting film, which reduces interior heat, blocks UV rays, protects dashes and upholstery, and conceals Go-Gurt stashes. The team works directly with customers while developing custom graphics⎯such as lettering, signs, banners, and wraps⎯and further reinforces cars' self-esteem by offering detailing services and the addition of accessories such as remote-start systems and trailer hitches.
For more than three decades, Clear Water Car Wash has empowered patrons with the choice of automatic or self-serve washes with full access to cleaning products and eco-friendly services.

The staff at Clear Water balances their care for all things auto with equal aid to humans, granting local fundraising groups access to the self-serve bays for car washes or lemonade stands powered by high pressure hoses.
