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.
Nearly three decades have rolled by since Pro Tire Service opened for business. In that time, technology has advanced and cars have gotten smarter—but so have the shop's ASE-certified technicians. The automotive services they offer range from basic maintenance to heavy-duty stuff such as engine overhauls, transmission rebuilds, and journeys into the uncharted territory of on-board computers. Because the DOT now requires all cars to be shod, the technicians fit four-wheelers for tires from BFGoodrich, Michelin, and Uniroyal. And because it's no longer considered humane to turn old batteries into chew toys for teething T-1000s, they recycle them instead. The majority of what Pro Tire Service's people do is backed by a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty, a result of their affiliation with Tech-Net Professional Auto Service.
Though automotive size, shape, and horsepower have evolved considerably since 1929, Black's Tire & Auto Service's commitment to vehicular maintenance and safety has remained constant. Now the brand boasts 32 locations throughout North and South Carolina, an ASE-certified squad of auto technicians, and an arsenal of trusted tires from the likes of Michelin and Goodyear. Drawing from a large slate of services, technicians maintain and treat the entire auto ecosystem, repairing air conditioning, replacing fluids, and fixing electrical systems, such as starter cables and dashboard Lite-Brites.
Sam Meineke opened his three-bay muffler shop in 1972 with a single product line, and through time, he and his successors have expanded the business into a complete automotive car-care center. Today, nearly 900 franchise owners operate their locations around the globe, still standing on the firm foundation of Sam's ideal of nursing vehicles back to health at fair prices. Meineke Car Care Centers’ mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
