Santa Fe Garage Services' Automotive Service Excellence–certified master technician Greg Smith employs his alignment and tire expertise to inspect a vehicle's chassis during four-wheel alignment checks. Roll horseless carriages into the awaiting yellow jaws of the alignment rack, where Smith will carefully check and reset the buggy to factory alignment specifications. The auto technician harnesses calibrated Hunter Engineering Company equipment to square the auto during the alignment check with toe adjustment, which entails measuring and adjusting the rear and front axels to reduce rapid tire wear, alter unsatisfactory vehicle handling, and eliminate snippy back talk. Smith then utilizes the Road Force tire balancer with StraightTrak to eradicate vibration issues and ensure smoother driving. The visit also includes a quick peek beneath the roadster to inspect the undercarriage for clingy tumbleweeds or a stash of unpaid parking tickets.

Customers can wait in designated areas or drop their four-wheeled children off and take advantage of the complimentary shuttle service at the Main Street location. Complete Auto Service does not require appointments.
