The Peveto family's name became synonymous with stopping power when John Peveto II opened his first Brake Check shop in 1968. More than 40 years and 40 shops later, the family still helps cars stop (and go) with brake-pad inspections, wheel alignments, battery replacements, and oil changes. With convenience in mind, each shop opens its work bays seven days a week, offers online appointments, and backs up several of their services with lifetime warranties that are then backed up by other even more muscular warranties.:m]]
Pro Drive's expert mechanics, who collectively have serviced more than 50,000 vehicles, will uncork your vehicle, let the dirty oil drain out, and replace it with brand new 10W30 oil and a new filter to match. All vehicle bloods are checked and topped off, and Pro Drive will ensure that all under-hood spinners, twirlers, and hummers are operating correctly. Tires get rotated (and balanced, if needed) and the air pressure is adjusted to meet factory recommendations. During the procedure, which takes about 45–60 minutes, guests can peruse a stack of magazines in the comfortable lobby, sip coffee and water, or grab a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant. Car and driver can rest assured, because all work has a warranty and Pro Drive is BBB-rated A.
The locally owned Express Care Quick Lube center betters the interior and exterior of vehicles with the same skill and professional touch championed by Valvoline in more than 100 different countries. Full-service oil changes keep cars running smoothly, and replacement batteries reinvigorate weary engine blocks. While transmission and radiator services take care of the inner organs, laser car washes keep the car’s shell radiant with high-pressure washes, polishes, and sealants that protect the paint against moisture and UV rays.
Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box filter; a checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights.
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 the standard brake service 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, factory maintenance services, batteries, belt replacement, and fluid services.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change, which helps promote 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 helps prevent 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) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
