At Kings Grant Citgo–voted Best Automotive Service Center and one of the Best Car Wash winners in the Best of Hampton Roads 2011 awards–a cadre of ASE-certified technicians give domestic and foreign cars of all makes and models the maintenance they need to hug the road. During the one-hour hand wash and vacuum, a skilled auto-bather slathers suds over windows, sloughs debris off of fenders, and chips away any sand bags preventing the car from achieving flight. A thorough vacuum extricates crumbs and other debris from floorboards, seats, and cup holders.
Entrust tired trucks and road-weary wagons to First Landing's Automotive Service Excellence–certified technicians, who will swap out your auto's oil and filter before topping off fluids. After retiring aging oil and replacing your vehicle's fast-fading filter, techs pour in up to 5 quarts of piston-polishing conventional 5W-30 or BG brand full synthetic motor oil to rejuvenate motor mojo. While conventional motor oil should be replaced every 5,000 miles, synthetic oil can last up to 7,500 miles and an even greater number of kilometers. If you select the synthetic oil change option, the First Landing techs will perform a courtesy 16-point check of your vehicle, topping off fluids and adjusting tire pressure before releasing it back into its naturally paved habitat.

The technicians also perform paint-correction treatments to revive finishes that have been scarred by rust, scratches, or razor burn, and they offer mobile services that cater to cars while their motorists work at the office or relax at home.
