The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes 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 prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, brakes, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.

The meticulous technicians of Top Hat Car Wash have watched the brake lights of nearly three million freshly cleaned cars pull away from their cleansing stations since sudsing up their first ride in 1968. Their wash tunnel churns out four types of washes, ranging from basic exterior cleanses to a 13-step SuperSaver Plus wash that scrubs undercarriages and vacuums out trunks. The detailing menu gives rides an extra human touch, whether through the Meguiar's hand wax or floor-mat cleaning of the express packages or the full-fledged white-glove services, during which technicians refine cars with leather conditioner, Teflon polish wax, and paint-refining clay bars. The shop?s complimentary Wi-Fi keeps waiting customers busy, and a three-day rain-check policy lets drivers bring their car back in case it rains or the hood-mounted water-balloon cannon backfires.
Throughout three locations, Jupiter Auto Wash, West Palm Auto Wash, or Gardens Auto Wash, teams of professional detailers swiftly swoosh cloth squares over the shells and seats of vehicles, shielding paint jobs with coats of Teflon wax and sealer. Each car's doting owner awaits their four-wheeled friend's return in the cozy waiting area, happily munching on snacks from the full-service gas station's convenience shop. Hard-working technicians combine their intricate knowledge of automotive surfaces and cleaning agents with a well-practiced technique, protecting car exteriors, tires, and upholstery as they create driveable masterpieces. The car washes reward regular customers who opt for the Unlimited Wash Club, which bequeaths its members with a never-ending fount of washes, a 10% discount on detailing, and knowledge of the car wash?s secret handshake.
A 125-foot automatic wash tunnel is the bread and butter at each of Motor City Car Wash’s three locations. The system, which uses light-touch soft cloths and 60% recycled and filtered water, effectively cleans cars from roof to underbelly without damaging the paint. Drivers can choose one of four car-wash packages, such as the Basic—a wash, power dry, and hand finish—or the Works, complete with an exterior dressing and a Rain-X windshield treatment. After rolling through the tunnel, cars can pull up to a uniformed technician to be lavished with praise for their new and shiny look, or to be detailed with Meguiar's products. Motor City backs all of its services with a 48-hour re-wash policy.
