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, 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 who 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 perform preventative services such as air-filtration, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. 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.
With America's Best Car Care Plan, ASE-certified technicians keep autos running smoothly by injecting car insides with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional oil (upgrades to synthetic require additional charges) and performing a host of auto-maintenance services. Brake inspections and adjustments grant drivers the peace of mind that cars are safe and equipped for inclement weather and duck-crossing signs that come out of nowhere. Two tire rotations ensure automotive equilibrium can find long-lasting balance and tire grooves wear evenly.
At seven locations throughout the Houston metropolitan area, Discount Inspection and Brakes' ASE-certified mechanics keep vehicles in tip-top shape. They check and repair squeaky brakes, change out old oil, and inspect cars to make sure they comply with state emissions requirements and seasonal fashion trends. Aside from everyday preventative maintenance, the knowledgeable crews also repair cracked windshields and get to the bottom of engine trouble with a computerized diagnostic system.
At 38 stations located throughout four states, MrSticker's technicians specialize exclusively in EPA-mandated auto services including emissions testing and safety inspections. Adhering to the Clean Air Act of 1970, they inspect and test cars, vans, SUVs, and pickups, assuring all vehicles are capable of safely treading the nation's network of roads safely without polluting or getting birds loopy with their fumes.
The ASE-certified mechanics at Auto Service Express, in business for more than 30 years, extend jalopies' lives through 30- to 45-minute standard oil changes and 21-point inspections to check for maintenance issues. Experienced auto techs exchange worn, debris-bunged oil with up to five quarts of premium Kendall motor lube and replace dingy oil filters with unsoiled filters or pantyhose. Techs then inspect the belts, hoses, and air filter, and lubricate the chassis. Car owners may opt to add a comprehensive 21-point inspection for a 60- to 90-minute safety check that includes the installation of brand-new wipers to sweep away rain and determined hitchhikers from the front windshield.
