Simotes specializes in pre-owned vehicles. Their lots showcase foreign and domestic cars from makers such as Cadillac, Jeep, and Volkswagen, with an inventory boasting trucks, sedans, SUVs, and convertibles. Beyond the sales side of the business, technicians invite drivers to take a detour for oil changes or detailing services, which include hand-applied waxes, wheel and tire scrubbings, and interior shampoos to give cars that classic "just had a shower" smell.
Specialty Auto Care’s team of mechanical transfusionists swaps out automobile lifeblood to keep pistons safely churning inside their cylinders. Technicians combine hydraulic hoists and impressive piggyback rides to raise cars and uncork oil pans before seamlessly replacing gritty motor oil with up to 5 quarts of freshly viscous fluids. During comprehensive maintenance services, tires play musical chairs for the prize of more even wear, a 21-point inspection identifies the car's deepest secrets, and fresh wiper blades clear away debris and stubble left on unkempt windshields.
At Final Touch Auto Spa, techs eschew conveyer belts, concentrated chemicals, and harsh spinning brushes by hand applying gentle cleaning products with lamb's wool cloths. Their multi-step washing process begins at the tires, where spray cleaner breaks up grime before the team washes each panel with soft, sudsy strokes. Once finished, they whisk away left-over moisture with a swipe of a microfiber towel and force out detritus from crevices with puffs of compressed air. In addition to basic washes, full detailing packages can restore assembly-line luster, and window tinting preserves interiors by blocking out harmful UV-rays and ugly rainbows.
