From more than 35 years with 350 facilities in six countries, Precision Tune Auto Care has spent the last three decades keeping more than 2.5 million vehicles on the road with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services. Professionally trained mechanics lube engines with signature precision oil changes, rotate tires to ensure even tread wear, repair busted brakes, and test spark plugs to safeguard against ignition failure during dramatic drive-thru getaways. Whether performing complicated services on fuel-injection and cooling systems or simply aligning tires, the mechanics back all their services with a 12-month, 12,000-mile national warranty.
The Fowler family has presided over the Modern group for four generations, overseeing an exhaustive collection of new, used, and certified preowned vehicles. Cars in need of service seek refuge in one of the dealership’s 18 service bays, where technicians perform simple tune-ups and four-wheel alignments or investigate the impetus behind a check-engine light. As an added convenience to its customers, Modern Nissan offers online scheduling for service appointments, as well as rentals that satisfy your craving for new-car smell.
For the certified instructors of FlyCarolina, the sky is never the limit. In the last 15 years, they have helped many aspiring air jockeys learn how to soar with their custom flight-training programs. More than 30 aircraft comprise the school's fleet, which is used to train pilots from beginner through commercial levels. FlyCarolina also offers a private jet charter service. Licensed pilots can take advantage of FlyCarolina's co-ownership program, and plane owners can swoop by to let one of the company's mechanics perform routine maintenance.
Staffed by National Windshield Repair Association technicians, TNT Auto Glass restores scathed windshields with their lifetime-guaranteed glass-repair services. The crew welcome vehicles into their garages in Mooresville, Concord, and Denver to dole out free estimates, patch up small chips and cracks, and replace entire windows and windshields. They also travel directly to driveways for vehicles that, like a teenage girl after a breakup, are too damaged to move.
Top Flight Autoglass's technicians have mastered the art of fixing windows. They utilize factory-approved adhesives to mend small chips before they can grow into larger cracks and spread to the fine china. If windshields need replacement, they can swap them out either at the shop or on the shoulder of a road, traveling to cars to fix the damage and send them cruising off into the sunset.
Cars emerge from Carolina Springs AutoSpa Detail Shop sparkling clean and well oiled.

The staff at the Cornelius location tackles more severe forms of dirtying with carpet steaming, engine cleaning, and high-speed buffing, and the staff at the University location offers oil changes and basic maintenance services.
