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 package, 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—all of which 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 offer preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical-system maintenance, among others. 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.
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.
Bethany Auto & Lube enlists a squad of professional, thoroughly trained technicians to keep automobiles in good health with routine oil changes. During the 30-minute service, skilled mechanics persuade vehicles to give up their used engine juice in exchange for servings of standard motor oil poured through piston-shaped curly straws. Customers can opt to upgrade their service with synthetic oil for an additional fee, which varies depending on the car's make, model, and mileage.
Walker’s Roadside Service, LLC turns any shoulder of the road into a makeshift garage.

And, they can even help drivers get back into cars that have locked them out for making them wear an embarrassing bumper sticker.
