Working from two locations in Jacksonville, Gunner Tire's certified technicians help cars reach their maximum mileage with a range of maintenance and repair services. After performing free safety inspections, the team draws from a stockroom of top-brand tires by Michelin, Falken, and Cooper to outfit cars with the best spinners in every size. They confiscate dirty oil and replace it with standard or Mobile 1 premium fluids, and toss away dingy filters wrought with engine-clogging debris. While cars receive service, customers can lounge in shop's diner-like atmosphere, where black-and-white checkerboard floors and vintage red walls box in a coffee bar and fresh air saturated with complimentary WiFi.
Westside Automotive Inc's ASE-certified technicians conduct mechanical magic during thorough approximately 30-minute preventative maintenance inspections. Drivers hand over keys to car caretakers, who precisely lubricate and check the chassis, change the oil filter, and pour engine oil during the detailed oil change. Tire treads benefit from more even wear with the tire rotation, and brake pedals, tired of having their faces pushed into the floor, welcome the brake inspection with open armrests. A check of the filters, fluid levels, tire pressure, and a basic safety inspection ensure waving windshield wipers keep their hands inside the vehicle at all times.
As Super-Lube's name suggests, its signature service is the oil change. Technicians at its more than 50 locations lubricate engines with up to five quarts of premium oil. The comprehensive service, which requires no appointment, also comes with a 20-point maintenance check, and a free fluid top-off between changes. The technicians' handiwork extend beyond oil changes, too—they can change radiator fluid, swap out fuel filters, and replace broken windshield wiper blades.
VIP Park & Ride's sprawling lot space welcomes up to 500 vehicles at a time for short staycations as owners head to Jacksonville International Airport or Jaxport cruise terminal by way of complimentary shuttle. In addition to keeping a close eye on visiting horseless carriages, VIP's seasoned team of mechanics can also fine-tune cars while their owners are gone, changing oil, rotating tires, and swapping out damaged wiper blades. Six different detailing services thoroughly primp and polish vehicles by swabbing their exteriors in hard wax and dabbing their interiors with vinyl dressing and air deodorizer. Automotive experts can also tint windows a shade darker to block out the sun or views of obscene full moons. Guests are welcome to call ahead or make drop-off reservations online.

Mike Mills and his team of technicians cater to every size and scope of roadster at Mills Automotive Care and Custom Detailing, where they perform treatments by hand. A basic hand wash is the jumping-off point for a fleet of detailing services that includes leather seat conditioning and polishing of chrome bumpers and rims. Technicians journey under the hood for engine detailing and minor auto repairs, and tint windows to keep dashboard hula girls from getting uneven tan lines.
