Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigour with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to U.S. EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
Hollywood’s most famous residents get hand-pampered until their skin shines, a trick to looking good they may have picked up the local Vineland Car Wash. Here, technicians use soap and elbow grease to scrub signs of wear from vehicle exteriors, following up with a coat of wax that keeps the cars looking like new. A typical scrub down ends with the hanging of an air freshener from the rearview mirror, a parting gift akin to a breath mint after a dinner of soap.
The ASE-certified mechanics that staff FixCarNow's five locations reinvigorate cars with Castrol GTX oils and preempt problems with sweeping diagnostics. During each one-hour premium oil change, techs drain contaminated lubricants and replace them with up to five quarts of clean oil (synthetic available for an additional fee). New filters then assume guard duty in place of their dirty predecessors, intercepting dirt and rumors about recent monster-truck sightings. A 16-point diagnostic inspection takes techs on a tour of car’s vital components, and includes a brake inspection, chassis lube, fluid top off, and wiper-blade check. Service bays happily hoist cars up for fluid transfusions seven days a week, meaning drivers can no longer use busy schedules or observance of Take Your Unicycle to Work Day as an excuse for shirking automotive duties.
