Helping generations of rambling drivers from its historic Route 66 location since 1954, Diffee Motor Company's renowned customer service helped it become a five-time Readers' Choice Awards winner in The Oklahoman. Monday–Saturday, 27 bay doors fling open to welcome ailing autos with attention from certified technicians, quarts of Mobil and Valvoline oil, and “Get Well Soon” bumper stickers. Technicians go a step beyond routine maintenance at dedicated bays set aside for services including transmission and engine repair. Outside the doors and crimson red awnings, an expansive parking lot collects a bevy of new and used automobiles in all shapes, sizes, and GPS personality types.

The roving technicians at Car RX Advanced Mobile Oil & Lube mitigate the hassle of scheduling routine service with a traveling maintenance truck stocked to the brim with quality lubricants and products.

At both of Ultimate Car Wash’s locations, grimy rides zip through the wash tunnel and appear on the other side looking fresh. Several wash options give customers a choice in their car's level of clean, and a crew of attendants is on duty to finish off each thorough scrubbing. A basic wash swiftly clears dirt from paint, and a more in-depth exterior wash uses high-pressure jets and a spot-free rinse to blast away deep-set grime and obliterate incriminating talon prints. Drivers can choose the rain-proof treatment for a roof-to-underbelly shower that ends with a helping of Rain-X wax, and the ultimate wash includes all the components of the rain-proof wash but adds Black Magic tire shine to the roster.
