GS Auto Center is a full-service garage and auto-sales center that handles all manner of mechanical and cosmetic problems. On the sales side, a diverse stock of preowned imported and domestic vehicles sings a horsepower-charged siren song with a slew of sedans and SUVs, which have been examined with a fine-tooth comb to ensure quality and viability. Back at the garage, ASE-certified mechanics keep cars healthy with oil changes and 23-point inspections. When more than maintenance is required, the techs repair damage to brakes, electrical systems, and overheated dashboard hula dancers with expertise and an ample stock of auto parts. A crew of detailers, body-work pros, and paint-repair experts stands by the tools needed to reverse the signs of age and weather damage. For customers whose cars are taking a sabbatical to regain their powers, the center's fleet of tow trucks and shuttles lend an extra dash of convenience.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with the standard brake service including a lifetime warranty on parts, labor and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, factory maintenance services, batteries, belt replacement, and fluid services.
Dilapidated vehicles putter into the garage at Dave's Auto Systems, but head home restored to a factory-condition shine and hum. The trained technicians are versed in all makes and models, much like a child raised by auto parts, so they can efficiently tackle the repairs and tune-ups of any roadster. To help them do their best work, they enlist technology, including computer-fueled diagnostic tools to tweak malfunctioning AC systems, rotate tires, or calibrate suspension systems.
At Tuffy's, motor-vehicle caregivers spruce up patrons' horseless carriages and prepare them for a new season of dutiful service. After installing a new oil filter, auto artisans remove the old sludgy glop clogging the car's arterial system and replace it with up to five quarts of 5W-30 or 5W-20 conventional motor oil (a $31.99 value; diesel or synthetic oil costs extra). The staff will also rotate tires to prepare four-wheeled wonders for safe gliding (a $12 value) and perform an inspection to make sure air-conditioning systems are functioning properly to bring riders to the brink of coolness faster than Fonzie’s leather jacket ($9.99). Finally, a pair of fresh wiper blades (up to 22")—grown locally by organic-blade farmers—supplants worn-out window-rubbers ($22) and a specialist conducts an extensive 41-point maintenance inspection.
Superior Transmission and Auto Repair's ASE-certified technicians keep cars roadworthy with preventative-maintenance services for all major car brands. Technicians freshen motors with an oil change, which keeps engines well lubed to prevent friction-incited corrosion and overheating. To ensure even wear on tire treads, vehicle caregivers complete a tire rotation, letting rubber rollers play one round of musical wheel wells. Mechanics complete a 50-point inspection to thoroughly check autos' vital systems, inspecting the roadster's full body for such potentially disastrous malfunctions as leaking engines, worn-out breaks, and ingrown windshield wipers.
