At more than a dozen locations throughout the northeast, ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers' computerized wash tunnels and detailing pros spiff up cars with advanced technology and minimal environmental impact. The robotic wash systems and photoelectric sensors not only clean finishes with a gentle, soft-cloth technique, but they can target white walls, wheels, and chrome with site-specific formulas. The eco-savvy automated systems also consume less water than home washing and recycle the water used to clean the wheels and undercarriage. Biodegradable SuperGlo soap keeps the run-off free of harmful compounds before it is funneled down the proper treatment channels, where it can't pollute neighborhood storm drains or be used to test the resiliency of carnival goldfish.
The centers' innovative equipment and Earth-friendly practices have earned them the title of Best Car Wash from CityVoter for three years running. Some locations also boast separate interior cleaning bays to address filthy dashboards and seats.
For more than 20 years, Willards’ ASE-certified mechanics have kept cars on Massachusetts roads with a full list of maintenance, repair, and diagnostic services backed by a 12-month, 10,000-mile warranty.

The ASE-certified technicians at Bonnette's Automotive, Inc., a Napa AutoCare Center, keep foreign and domestic cars rolling smoothly down the road. During the 30- to 45-minute oil change, mechanics equip cars with a new crud-stopping filter and solemnly task the replacement oil with helping the engine to not explode. Techs then perform an automotive pedicure on the car's pavement pounders, shuffling tires to prolong their lives and maintain even tread wear. Once autos have been spoon-fed vital fluids, the motor medics inspect the cars to make sure their various components aren't damaged or regretting their roles in the Industrial Revolution.
