From a single shop in Sturgis, Michigan, Auto-Lab has grown into a full-service franchise that cares for cars' every nook and cranny. Each location's ASE-certified technicians keep autos flourishing with regular maintenance check-ups, helping identify and stave off problems before they metastacize. These experts peer into the dark abyss under the hood, employing high-tech diagnostic tools to identify and repair computerized engine issues, and keep tabs on brakes before they seize up and stop you just as you're about to break the sound barrier. In addition, they guarantee all services for 12 months or up to 12,000 miles.
With more than 150 years of combined experience, the ASE-certified technicians at Community Automotive Repair have earned the shop a nod for Best Auto Repair in Grand Rapids magazine's 2011 readers' poll. Up to 5 quarts of conventional oil (synthetic available for additional fee) replace dirty predecessors during the oil change, after which techs reposition tires in order to equalize tread wear and remove fitness-crazed hamsters from wheel wells. During the maintenance inspection, specialists scout out potential problems in the car's systems and components and confirm the vehicle’s safety and performance. An attentive hand wash punctuates the service with soap and water massaged against the shell, letting cars cruise out feeling renewed, invigorated, and as clean as a hitchhiker's driving record. Customers are asked to schedule an appointment in advance, and during the service, free shuttles will trek drivers anywhere within a 10-mile radius of the shop.
Auto Centric, a AAA-approved and Bosch-authorized shop, staffs ASE-certified technicians who keep automobiles starting and stopping smoothly, no matter their make or model. During the oil and filter change, mechanics will extract the old oil and filter and fill vehicles' innards with up to 5 quarts of standard automobile blood, then inspect fluid levels and lube the steering, chassis, and door hinges. The car experts also examine the brakes—ensuring metal human transporters can stop on a dime to avoid hitting an innocent quarter—and rotate the tires if necessary. With a new set of wiper blades, patrons can enjoy greater visibility while driving through rain, snow, sleet, hail, or post offices. The entire service takes about two hours; drivers who'd like to stick around can lounge in the waiting area or frolic with the free WiFi.
Foreign and domestic auto repair, we offer the kind of training, experience and part selection which set our auto services apart. We are AAA, ASA, Bosch and ASE certified but there’s more to the Muskegon Brake Difference than accreditations. Make No Mistake, we help drivers make informed service decisions.
Interstate All Battery Center leads the charge in power outposts, providing lifelong Michiganders and reserve-power road trippers with brand-new batteries for their trucks, cell phones, computers, and other appliances. With a vast storehouse of more than 16,000 products, Interstate carries batteries for nearly every brand of laptop and PC, as well as an expansive line-up of automotive batteries to restore sedans, coupes, and station wagons after a long night of headlight staring contests. Hearing aid batteries ($3.99-$10.99), watch batteries ($7.99 with installation) as well as other household powerables are also available, including an Interstate 9V alkaline battery ($3.49) for metronomes possessed by surprisingly funky eighth notes. Old used batteries find comfy retirement at Interstate’s recycling center, allowing their former owners and well-meaning grandchildren to rest easy.
The automobile authorities at Seelye Wright of Paw Paw treat cars of all makes and models to a thorough maintenance routine that lasts from 30 minutes to an hour. Talented techs double-check brakes to ensure safe stopping at manatee crossings before subjecting belts and hoses to a thorough physical and refreshing all fluids to prevent vehicle dehydration. After banishing rogue particles with a new filter, engines guzzle fresh-squeezed oil and squeaks are silenced with a fresh coat of lubricant. The buggy revitalization is completed with a full tire rotation, in which rubber rollers play a game of musical wheel-well and treads are inspected for tears, punctures, and hidden stashes of potato chips.
