Concord Auto Service's mechanics don't exclude vehicle makes and models from their garage. Instead, they wave all types of vehicles inside for essential maintenance and repair services such as oil changes, brake work, diagnostics, and finding Rose Royce's song "Car Wash" on the radio. For customers whose vehicles need to stay overnight, Concord Auto offers free shuttles throughout Concord.
Berkeley Goodyear's punch cards grant autos the attentive service of experienced mechanics during three standard- or synthetic-oil changes with three 30-point safety inspections. During each 30- to 45-minute service, mechanics propel engines toward a longer life by exposing them to frightening pictures of junkyards and by swapping out sludgy oils for up to 5 vigorous quarts of standard or synthetic oil. Once engines have been properly lubricated, the motor medics take a 30-point tour of the car's vitals, casting trained glances at essential components to verify the auto's safety functions and assess performance.
Autos of all sorts trundle into the garage of Auto Care 101's brick building where ASE-certified mechanics execute services backed by high-tech diagnostics technology. Their vehicular expertise extends to everything from alignment adjustments to routine oil changes. Though they specialize in Japanese vehicles such as Honda and Toyota, they apply their skills to domestic and European models with the same aplomb, performing smog checks and engine diagnostics without converting pistons to the metric system.
The auto experts at Tires and Brakes for Less keep road-weary wagons from sputtering to an untimely end with thorough preventative maintenance services. By draining overused sludge and replacing it with smooth-flowing engine elixir, these motor masters maximize the performance and ensure proper lubrication of crankcase components, such as pistons, shafts, and internal combustion kidneys. Then vehicular doctors analyze horseless chariots from bumper to bumper during a multipoint inspection, checking auto systems for any potential faults or errors. Unlike quick change shops and pit crews working out of highway ditches, these car crusaders are meticulous with their work, spending at least an hour swapping out oil and scrutinizing each jalopy. Redeem the second oil change as needed during a later visit.
The technicians at West Oakland Tires and Repairs work hard to keep a car healthy, popping its hood to check the engine and lifting it up for a look at the underbelly. They change oil, install brakes, align wheels, and give warning lights the evil eye until they wink off in defeat. The crew also specializes in new and used tires, outfitting rims up to 35 inches. For cars unable to make it to the garage under their own power, they offer pickup service.
The ASE-certified mechanics at Alameda Oakland Tire-Brake & Muffler maintain automotive health with oil changes, repairs, and inspections. Punch-card carriers are privy to a trio of one- to two-hour oil changes, during which mechanics extract old oil, replace it with standard or synthetic libations, and listen as the lubricated car parts hum "Happy Trails" in unison. Punch cards come with additional free benefits, such as tire rotations to prolong wheel performance, free flat-tire repairs, and battery recharges and system analyses. Additionally, certified mechanics check all fluid levels and perform a 50-point inspection to scour the car for signs of malfunction, damage, or broken windows held together by hope.
