Since 1996, Shell Rapid Lube and AutoSpa's team of technicians have been giving vehicles expedited oil changes at their ever-expanding network of service shops. This extensive experience has translated to a quick turnaround time for the team's oil changes, which, in a span of about 20 minutes, fill cars with fresh lube, exchange their filters, double-check 18 of their vital points, and quiz their knowledge of General Motors trivia. The shops' car-wash tunnel runs vehicles through a gauntlet of brushes, soap, and water jets.
Yellow hydraulics lift cars overhead in We Fix It's shop, where uniformed mechanics tune-up and repair cars of all kinds. After tending to underbody parts such as universal joints and suspensions, cars come back down to the ground so staffers can pop the hood in order to change the oil and feed field mice to serpentine belts. We Fix It's services also include exterior spruce-ups, such as custom wheels, power-window repair, and suspension lowering.
Whether you take your automobile to Auto Pro or CarFix, your personal vehicle will be in the hands of a specially trained staff of engine experts ready to coat the battered insides of piston-powered car hearts with fresh oil. A new oil filter is fitted to strain engine grime and misplaced hors d’oeuvre toothpicks from the lubricating oil flow, while a brand new pair of wiper blades ensures that inclement weather runoff is quickly whisked away, and produce is efficiently cleared from windshields after you've driven through inconveniently placed fruit stands. Additionally, a state emissions inspection preps vehicles for their pollution check-ups, keeps Johnny Q. Law out of the picture, and assures owners they haven’t been pumping gas tanks full of home-brewed naphtha. Prepare for memorable road trips and glide down winding roads more smoothly than a buttered-up bobsled thanks to today’s Groupon.
For more than 25 years, USA Automotive and its ASE-certified mechanics have kept cars humming with skilled ratchet work. Like George Washington cleaning his closet, engine techs toss the car’s old oil out along with grimy powdered wigs before filling the engine to the brim with fresh synthetic-blend motor oil. The engine’s oil filter is also subject to the royal switcheroo, as the old filter is shipped off to a farm in the sky before a stork delivers a new gunk-sorting device. The third prong of the auto care pitchfork is USA Automotive’s North Carolina emission test, which certifies that each car meets state requirements. Additionally, all autos passing through the garage are treated to a complimentary chassis lube, tire pressure fixer-upper, and a 30-point inspection that tests a car’s ability to name every state in order of kumquat production. USA Automotive’s clean waiting area is lined with couches, chairs, free WiFi, and a television to offer a respite for toe-tappers and watch-checkers.
