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.
Servicing the west-Michigan area for more than 90 years, Ronda Truck Center revitalizes ailing autos with thorough services performed by ASE-certified mechanics. Treat your horseless carriage to a standard oil change, which replaces up to 6 quarts of oil with the viscosity grade based on manufacturer recommendations, and includes a new oil filter to keep operation as smooth as a freshly ironed ceiling tile. Next, technicians ensure car innards are working competently with a 17-point inspection, exhaustively examining the key components of a working vehicle with a heptadecegon-toothed comb, before easing road-rash and promoting even wear with a soothing tire rotation. A visual brake inspection rounds out the package, providing peace of mind for drivers, lending them the confidence to run errands and pop triple-axel wheelies with aplomb.
Performance Plus Quick Lube's team of trained technicians is well-versed in the most common oil myths and uses that knowledge during regular oil changes to transform coughing engines into efficient, long-lasting, high-performance car-hearts. After expunging the contaminated sludge from the engine’s crankcase, the Performance pit crew enlists up to five quarts of Quaker State Enhanced Durability synthetic blend motor oil for a three-month (or 3,000-mile) tour of lubrication duty that eases piston pounding and traps engine dirt in suspended animation. Once they've installed a new oil filter, they'll top off the car's coolant, power steering fluid, and umbrella drink.
AAA-approved Community Automotive Repair has been revving engines since 1975, garnering a nod for "Best Auto Repair" from Grand Rapids Magazine readers in 2010. During a winter service package, qualified grease monkeys service engines with up to 5 quarts of fresh conventional oil, though an additional charge is required for synthetic oil and European models. After coddling coupes with a tire rotation and comprehensive maintenance inspection, ignition improvers finish the service by replacing wiper blades. Vans and sedans leave the lot hand-washed and shiny, ready to brave winter elements and obliterate low vehicular self-esteem.
With lube and service centers spread across America, Valvoline Instant Oil Change ensures that roads from coast to coast teem with automotive vigor. Certified technicians perform a roster of services, including drive-thru oil changes that allow motorists to arrive without an appointment and remain in their car while Valvoline oils forge a truce between metal parts.
Kyle Bigford’s love of car care began in college, when a summer job tinkering with Corvettes awakened what would become his lifelong calling. The passion never went away, even in the face of postcollege employment: wanting to build an honest auto company for like-minded friends, Kyle quit his job as a financial adviser with Edward Jones Investments to create Hamilton Speed Shop. Now, his multipurpose shop helps customers customize humdrum vehicles, find their ideal auto, or sell their car at a fair market price. Techs at the full-service detail shop wield professional-grade cleaning products along with the knowledge to install deluxe stereo systems, rims, or GPS systems with the personality of Noel Coward. Staff will also locate, ship, and inspect autos based on a customer's wants and needs or spearhead the sale process using Internet merchants and their own database of buyers.
