Outfitted with crisp red shirts and hands well versed in shop talk, SCR Auto Center’s car custodians expertly execute a robust array of automotive services. During each oil change, chariots, like homesick astronauts, gulp down up to 5 quarts of 5W-30 oil and wipe the corners of their mouths with new filters (cartridge filters not included) before a tasting menu of fresh fluids further whet thirsty receptacles. Technicians then rotate tires into a comfortable radius and thoroughly inspect vehicles in search of disrepair and defects. To top off the automotive spa package, exteriors receive a thorough scrub down and a kiss on the cheek, given ever so gently. SCR Auto Center’s waiting area stocks complimentary coffee, refreshments, and Internet, and an early-bird drop-off option accommodates drivers’ busy schedules.

For more than 30 years, Precision has helped vehicles of all sorts run smoothly with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services. Professionally trained mechanics whet engine appetites with a premium oil change with up to 5 quarts of oil, and then rotate tires to allow for an even distribution of wear and tear while on the road. The automotive pampering lasts about an hour, during which mechanics dispose of all waste and crumbs from half-eaten parking tickets stuck in the engine. Technicians conclude the ride renovation with a brake inspection to ensure effective stopping post-drive-away.
