Pro Drive's expert mechanics, who collectively have serviced more than 50,000 vehicles, will uncork your vehicle, let the dirty oil drain out, and replace it with brand new 10W30 oil and a new filter to match. All vehicle bloods are checked and topped off, and Pro Drive will ensure that all under-hood spinners, twirlers, and hummers are operating correctly. Tires get rotated (and balanced, if needed) and the air pressure is adjusted to meet factory recommendations. During the procedure, which takes about 45–60 minutes, guests can peruse a stack of magazines in the comfortable lobby, sip coffee and water, or grab a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant. Car and driver can rest assured, because all work has a warranty and Pro Drive is BBB-rated A.
The automotive podiatrists at Tire South keep cars rolling smoothly with precise calibrations and new sets of rubber soles. During the wheel alignment, techs ensure that each tire is parallel to the others, and perpendicular to the ground. The rotation and balance works to prolong each tire's lifespan by evenly distributing the tread wear. The maintenance package lasts from 60 to 120 minutes, and varies depending on the make and model of vehicles, and whether or not the car had to be sedated. Alternatively, swap road-weary donuts for a pair or a set of reliable new tires from well-known brands such as Goodyear, Uniroyal, and Continental.
Started by local Catherine Simpson over 10 years ago, Catherine’s Auto Repair boasts engine experts that pamper most domestic and imported street gliders with a smorgasbord of services to ensure smooth cement sailing.

Then windshields will receive new front wiper blades to ensure visibility during morning commutes, weekend road trips, and romps through the time-space continuum. Afterward, four-wheeled friends undergo a thorough check-up, which includes a fluid check, fluid topping, and an inspection of belts, hoses, brakes, tires, exhaust, axles, steering, suspension, lights, and tire rotation if needed. Catherine’s conveniently provides shuttle services for nearby locations to ferry road warriors to and from work, school, or monster-truck rallies while vehicles receive full-service beautifications.
