Whether you take your automobile to Auto Pro or CarFix, your personal vehicle will be in the hands of a specially trained staff of engine experts ready to coat the battered insides of piston-powered car hearts with fresh oil. A new oil filter is fitted to strain engine grime and misplaced hors d’oeuvre toothpicks from the lubricating oil flow, while a brand new pair of wiper blades ensures that inclement weather runoff is quickly whisked away, and produce is efficiently cleared from windshields after you've driven through inconveniently placed fruit stands. Additionally, a state emissions inspection preps vehicles for their pollution check-ups, keeps Johnny Q. Law out of the picture, and assures owners they haven’t been pumping gas tanks full of home-brewed naphtha. Prepare for memorable road trips and glide down winding roads more smoothly than a buttered-up bobsled thanks to today’s Groupon.
Sam Meineke opened his three-bay muffler shop in 1972 with a single product line, and through time, he and his successors have expanded the business into a complete automotive car-care center. Today, nearly 900 franchise owners operate their locations around the globe, still standing on the firm foundation of Sam's ideal of nursing vehicles back to health at fair prices. Meineke Car Care Center's mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
As part of the Cottman Transmission Center's service philosophy, each transmission service begins with a road test, a TransCheck 21 Plus exam, and a close inspection of the transmission plan—all performed with the hope that the transmission can be repaired without a costly reconditioning. This attention to detail and commitment to integrity flows through all of Cottman's services like oil through an engine. Technicians reject repairs that would make automobiles "superficially drivable", committing to the safety of its customers in each and every service.
For more than 25 years, USA Automotive and its ASE-certified mechanics have kept cars humming with skilled ratchet work. Like George Washington cleaning his closet, engine techs toss the car’s old oil out along with grimy powdered wigs before filling the engine to the brim with fresh synthetic-blend motor oil. The engine’s oil filter is also subject to the royal switcheroo, as the old filter is shipped off to a farm in the sky before a stork delivers a new gunk-sorting device. The third prong of the auto care pitchfork is USA Automotive’s North Carolina emission test, which certifies that each car meets state requirements. Additionally, all autos passing through the garage are treated to a complimentary chassis lube, tire pressure fixer-upper, and a 30-point inspection that tests a car’s ability to name every state in order of kumquat production. USA Automotive’s clean waiting area is lined with couches, chairs, free WiFi, and a television to offer a respite for toe-tappers and watch-checkers.
