Autobahn-USA is where the world's major highways come to shop for cars. Whether autobahn, interstate, or kosoku-doro, these roads can find the perfect roadster in a stash that includes BMWs, Mini Coopers, Chevys, Fords, Nissans, and even Campagna T-Rexes. The sales staff does its part by doling out facts and figures on each model in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Proto-Chilton.
Certified technicians hold court in Autobahn-USA's service center. Since breaking ties with their Magic 8 Pistons, they've teamed up with savvy diagnostics systems to pinpoint automotive problems and find solutions for down-and-out transmissions, weary brakes, and busted radiators. They make things easy by ferrying local cars from their driveways to the shop; during lengthy repair sessions, they'll offer to hook up patrons with rental cars. The shop's detailing is eco-friendly, which illustrates the mechanics' desire to keep roads filled with cars that aren't just healthy and happy, but clean as well.
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.
Caroline Tire Company's two locations partner with tires from brands such as Goodyear, Firestone, and Michelin, as well as top-of-the-line technicians waiting to perform a multitude of automotive services. Customers who purchase new or air-checked used tires for cars, SUVs, and commercial vehicles can have them installed on the spot. Technicians also perform routine maintenance, such as oil changes, and put their tools and knowledge toward bettering the performance of brakes, alternators, water pumps, and engines.
The equipment at Rubber Ducky Car Wash was designed to both clean and protect it. To wit: the wash tunnel is laser-driven and uses purified water, which helps protect the finish from chemicals. The brushes are equally efficient and gentle—aggressive enough to wrestle bugs and tar out but gentle enough to protect the paint and lull the car into dreams of a dashboard hula doll. The wash tunnels are also equipped with numerous cleaning products—blue coral triple conditioner and Rain-X—that help give the car a like-new shine. Rubber Ducky also offers detailing packages for a deeper clean. These include treatments such as polishing, clay bar compounds, and carpet shampoos that target more severe forms of dirt.
When the technicians at Solar Films of West Palm fit car, home, or commercial windows with LLumar or Sun-Tech films, the results could pass for factory-installed. That’s because they use a computer-plotter tool to shape and cut them. This tool replaces the meandering, imperfect lines of hand cutting, creating smooth, even edges that are flush to the window edges of almost any model of car or boat or fit snugly against window frames on homes or businesses. Window tinting reduces heat and glare and protects car passengers from UV rays, making for a more comfortable ride.
All Tune and Lube’s technicians tend to a wide array of auto-related tasks, ranging from preventive maintenance and visual inspections to large-scale repairs. They can bolster the longevity of a car with oil changes, tire rotations, and vitamin regimens, and they can ensure safety and performance by servicing the brakes and transmission. The team, equipped to handle hybrid and diesel vehicles, also conducts diagnostics and services tires.
