The locally owned Express Care Quick Lube center betters the interior and exterior of vehicles with the same skill and professional touch championed by Valvoline in more than 100 different countries. Full-service oil changes keep cars running smoothly, and replacement batteries reinvigorate weary engine blocks. While transmission and radiator services take care of the inner organs, laser car washes keep the car’s shell radiant with high-pressure washes, polishes, and sealants that protect the paint against moisture and UV rays.
At a family-run auto shop, Rick and his son Jeremy lead a team of mechanics ready to tackle all automotive needs.

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.
Town East Ford's service center employs a team of factory-trained technicians ready to keep vehicles of all makes and models running and rolling smoothly. The 60-minute service begins with an oil change, where mechanics convince engines to spit out their soiled crude and gulp a fresh batch of conventional motor oil. While autos hang in the air atop a lift bay, staffers rotate tires to balance tread-wear and run through a multipoint inspection to check for potential issues or accumulations of orange cones in the wheel wells. A complimentary car wash cleanses exteriors of built-up dirt and grime, sending cars on their way with a factory-fresh finish. As customers wait to be reunited with their four-wheeled babies, they can run errands with the help of Town East Ford's courtesy shuttle or practice advanced thumb-wrestling moves on their nondominant hand.
