Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with professional brake services including brake-line repair and replacement, ABS diagnosis and repair, and adjustments that come with a lifetime warranty on parts, labor, and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, suspension repair, and belt replacement.
The skilled technicians at Jim McNatt Toyota and Jim McNatt Honda lend a helping wrench to tired cars during oil-change services, draining worn-out lube from the car and swapping it for up to 5 quarts of conventional oil. After installing a filter and checking the air freshener for ripeness, the mechanics reposition the tires to equalize tread wear and prolong tire life, then rejoice in the successful rotation by launching a multipoint inspection on the car. As the checkup progresses, techs top off all fluids, inspect tire pressure, take a look at air filters, and scrutinize brake wear to confirm that cars can still stop before falling off the edge of America. Patrons can schedule appointments online or over the phone.
A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, Title Boxing Club maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across 19 different states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people’s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.

Drivers can control their cars' interior environments down to a specific degree. Short of driving their cars through grocery aisles, though, they have to leave their automobiles and risk the sun's wrath. To prevent solar rays from sizzling seats in cars, The Tint Shop & Accessories specializes in the application of window-tinting treatments, which block up to 99 percent of UV rays to prevent cars from overheating while adding an extra layer of privacy. The auto technicians primarily use Madico window films, which can be applied to cars, SUVs, boats, and even the windows of houses.
In their quest to provide the utmost in service, the staff offers a lifetime guarantee for their work so that each film will be working until the car is put out to pasture. The team also outfits cars with further amenities, such as in-car DVD players, iPod hookups, custom upholstery, and remote start for days it's cold enough to fill construction cones with ice cream and come back two hours later and find all 68 scoops still solid.
