As part of the family of one of America's most trusted automotive brands, Goodyear Barnett's Tire Co boasts a team of ASE-certified mechanics who can diagnose and repair most any automotive ailment. Their preventive maintenance services help keep cars healthy, but they can also clean up engines, steering columns, exhausts, and other systems that have fallen into disrepair. For their clients' convenience, they provide WiFi in the waiting room and overnight drop-off for cars that just need to get out of the house for a little while.
The mechanics at German Dreams specialize in Volkswagens, BMWs, Porsches, and other efficient vehicles. Whether fixing up a broken-down 996 Turbo or upgrading an Audi for high-performance racing, the tinkerers delight in getting engines ready to rev.
Dependable Car Care's crew of ASE-certified technicians invites roadsters to partake of a smorgasbord of preventative and maintenance services. The mechanics kick off the oil change by ruthlessly evicting used-up motor juice and soothing engines with a new filter and up to 5 quarts of 10W-30 lube, which prevents cars from desperately pilfering expensive bottles of olive oil and keeps pistons pumping smoothly. Synthetic oil is available, although customers must pay an extra fee for the luxury of watching it cascade into their engine. After topping off all fluids and adjusting the tire pressure to ensure even tread wear and a safer commute, the technicians complete the 45-minute service with a courtesy vehicle inspection, proving that the car in question is actually a car and not two horses in disguise.
Continuing in the legacy of 40 years of car-friendly service, Paradise Chevrolet's team of vehicle revampers shines up rides inside and out. Staffers hand-scrub vehicles, ridding bodies of grime before shining up paint jobs with a hearty coat of wax. A cleansing steam clean then scours engines with hot, gaseous water to melt away dirty deposits. Technicians finish off the three-hour buggy cleaning by sprucing-up interiors and sudsing-up carpets, leaving cars feeling fresh and ready to drive through mud.
Top Cat Auto's ASE-certified mechanic, Tim, employs a certification in advanced engine performance to perform full-service automotive work for vehicles that range from economy cars to foreign imports. Tim maintains a focus on environmentally conscious work by properly disposing of used materials and keeping vehicles in a healthy operating condition. In addition to daily maintenance work, a keen interest in older engines makes Tim a distinguished authority in the restoration and modification of classic cars such as Corvairs, BMWs, and late-model triceratops.
