The technicians at Mr. Tire maintain and repair more than three million cars a year, replenishing oil and rotating tires for sustained, smooth vehicle performance. During the oil change and tire rotation, technicians outfit autos with new oil filters and keep engines purring with up to five quarts of conventional oil. Mr. Tire’s technicians also inspect tires’ air- and peer-pressure levels, then rotate tires before bad influences can convince them to shoplift broken glass. A brake inspection acts as a reflex test for cars, keeping vehicles’ reaction times sharp.
If cars could talk when they're in need of repair, they'd proclaim that they don't want rookies under their undercarriage. When it comes to major overhauls or even minor maintenance to prevent those major issues from happening, a car needs the skilled hands of those who've seen it all. There are no rookies at First Choice Tire & Auto Center, just a crew of ASE-certified technicians who've been keeping every make and model rolling strong since 1993. The trusty techs tackle every matter big and small, from oil changes and brake repairs to bigger jobs such as transmission and engine overhauls (using warrantied Jasper engines). Tire services include computer spin balancing, flat tire repairs, and tire rotations, and a selection of top-notch brands such as Goodyear, Kelly, and Dunlop ensure a smooth, cordial affair when the rubber meets the road. The one-stop auto shop also offers custom exhaust system repairs, state inspections, towing and roadside assistance, and glass services, along with shuttle service and car rentals for customers in need.
Brake-O-Rama began as one location in 1949 but now boasts 14 service centers speckled across the East Coast. Together these automotive hospitals work as a force, repairing and maintaining domestic and imported vehicles of virtually any make and model. Before sourcing spare parts from the company's private warehouses, Brake-O-Rama's ASE-certified technicians thoroughly analyze vehicles with advanced diagnostic technology that includes four-wheel computerized alignment systems, electron microscopes that scan for chipped paint finishes, and magnifying glasses ever in search for clues to Professor Plum's murder. Meanwhile, Firestone, Goodyear, and Michelin tires fill the supply closets, allowing the patrons to tighten their grip on the asphalt before a cross-country trip.
Car troubles left to the staff at Alper Automotive land in skilled hands, as each mechanic holds an ASE certification and continues to train with the latest foreign and domestic cars. While technicians tinker with brakes, quench parched engines with Shell motor oil, pump up a tire’s pressure, or perform any of the shop’s other services, customers can relax inside a waiting room that welcomes parents, children, and nomadic laptops attracted by the buzz of free WiFi. Each completed repair comes with a nationwide warranty, and Alper Automotive’s status as a AAA Approved Auto Repair center signifies the shop’s upper-tier standards when it comes to reliability, cleanliness, quality, and pricing.
The technicians at Northern Liberties Auto Repair LLC—an official Pennsylvania inspection station—repair and reinvigorate foreign and domestic vehicles with steady hands and automotive acumen. The sounds of jovial engine revving and ribbing between cars about balding tires reverberate throughout the shop as the techs unburden engines of spent motor oil. During brake services, staff members ensure that the car’s stoppers are in healthy shape and outfit wheels with fresh rubber during in-shop tire installations. They’ll also reward cars with new stickers after assessing their health during state inspections, confirming that vehicles aren't emitting excessive amounts of pollutants, toxins, or unearned bravado.
The Goldstein family taps into three generations worth of experience and a crew of Automotive Service Excellence–certified mechanics to pamper steely steeds at Rapco Automotive.

Technicians swap out oil filters and drain grubby oil and replace it with up to 5 quarts of synthetic blend. An examination, cleaning, and adjustment of brakes ready vehicles to stop suddenly for icy obstacles, and a test of the battery, alternator, and starter helps stave off stalling and reliance on inconvenient potato power. Cars are ready for retrieval after the 2–3 hour process is completed.
