Named Top Shop in the Country by Motor Age magazine, Rad Air Complete Car Care has been servicing roadsters in the Cleveland area for more than a quarter of a century. Beginning as a radiator and air-conditioning repair shop in Parma Heights, the locally owned auto franchise has expanded to 10 Northeast Ohio locations that perform such services as brake work, tune-ups, electrical repairs, tire and suspension maintenance, and fluid adjustments. Rad Air is a AAA-approved auto-repair center that offers a lifetime warranty on its work and advises clients on what repairs are needed, recommended, and on each car's birthday wish list.
Spitzer Autoworld has been providing exemplary auto service for more than 100 years, having gotten its start selling and leasing Ford Model Ts. With today’s deal, soiled street wagons can ungrunge their outsides for the foreseeable future with a quintet of washes ($12 value each), during which their exteriors will be lovingly cleansed of accumulated grime and restored to factory-fresh spotlessness. Dirt-averse drivers can also opt for just one exterior clean but supplement it with the added perk of a standard oil change ($35 value) to re-lubricate crusty engines and inhibit corrosion, plus a 27-point auto inspection ($45 value) to ensure the car still has at least 27 parts.
Wheely Clean Car Wash's family of facilities keeps Cleveland-area rides looking their best. Engineered by trained attendants, each wash uses environmentally friendly products, and begins with a hand steam that preps outer surfaces for a cleaning and releases any stubborn paint wrinkles. Vehicles then freely roll through the sudsy process, which includes free vacuuming in Parma or the option for detailing services in Northfield. Wheely Clean also operates as a discrimination-free business, meaning owners never pay more when a full-size SUV, van, or giraffe's limo needs a scrub.
Lube Stop has been lauded by both local and national press outlets for its Sustainability Program, which decreases the environmental impact of the shop's auto services. Its signature EcoGuard oil change, for example, refreshes engines with re-refined motor oil. Lube Stop also recycles oil and antifreeze, and it plants two new oil-filter trees for every one it chops down.
Besides eight kinds of oil changes, Lube Stop provides multipoint inspections, tire rotations, wiper blade replacement, and other maintenance and repair services. More than 240 employees—who receive continuous training to keep up with eco-friendly practices—helm the company's 37 Cleveland- and Akron-area locations, all of which offer E-Check emissions-testing stations.
At Finn Tire & Automotive, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicles of all makes and models. Using computer technology, the crew balances tires and scans for looming problems, such as transmission troubles or missing engines. They swap out old oil for new, replace valve sterns, and outfit rides with tires from Michelin, Bridgestone, and BF Goodrich.
At Superior Auto Service, mechanics certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence carry out a variety of maintenance and repair services for all manner of horseless carriage. Servicing all automobile makes, models, and zodiac signs, the well-equipped facility's efficient service and quality parts commingle to create a stellar service center. An A/C system recharge gives cars a fighting chance to stand up against the bullying waves of summer heat ($89.95, plus freon). A tire rotation and 40-point inspection provide much needed attention to insecure cars ($19.95), and computer diagnostics and a half hour of troubleshooting reassure them that their owners don’t just love them for their bodies ($69.95).
