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 professional brake services 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, suspension repair, and belt replacement.
The experienced staffers at Prestige Automotive Group LLC brandish specific skills that play to the auto shop’s strengths: owner Brad Starr recently became the garage's Volvo master, having completed training and acclimated himself to Volvo's new Vida computer system, and two mechanics lay claim to ASE-certification, specializing in Volvos, and European and Asian-made vehicles. Despite their specialized knowledge, with outstretched wrench the techs happily welcome any car that needs an oil change, repair, or a polite reminder that its hood is open, servicing engines as customers connect to the facility's free WiFi during visits. The staff also thwarts inconvenience by comping carless motorists for one day of car rentals under certain conditions or helping to procure rentals at reduced rates.
Scoot Over is an authorized Scooterworks dealer, selling only street-legal, EPA/DOT compliant, fun-to-ride scooters that are designed for easy and efficient transportation. Take a whirlwind vacation at more than 60 miles per hour on one of three sleek-designed Buddy 150 International scooters, and enjoy the confidence of a two-year warranty, free roadside assistance, and no invasive airport scans. Riders leave baby-sized carbon footprints in the white sands of the French Riviera, jet-setting on the dichromatic, coastal colors of the Saint-Tropez at 89+ miles to the gallon, and siesta-ing bulls, exhausted from running, dream of tooling around on the hoof-less, automatic transmission Pamplona. Buddy Italia’s romantic accent adds a renaissance flare to pizza deliveries with its whitewall tires and air-cooled engine, inspiring jealous stares from four-wheeled behemoths and overcrowded unicycles.
Back in 1976, a small shop named Auto Stereo Specialists opened in Tucson and began outfitting vehicles with AM radios, cassette players, and Jensen Tri-Axials. Sound systems have come a long way since then, and so has that once three-employee garage. Today, Auto Stereo Specialists is just The Specialists, and the shop has become a hub for automotive and residential services.
At five locations across Tucson, specialists install audio, video, and navigation systems from brands such as AudioVox, Alpine, Pioneer, and Kenwood. Because they know how harmful heat and UV rays can be to a car's interior, they protect newly installed systems with FormulaOne window tints, which are backed by a lifetime guarantee. Beyond the car, homeowners can recruit The Specialists to fortify their homes, install window fixtures by Hunter Douglas, and reduce A/C costs by moving your house into the cold vacuum of space.
