For six decades, Lou Fusz’s savvy mechanicals have revived ailing autos with fresh fluids, tire care, and safety inspections that keep all components running at the same speed. Technicians rehydrate thirsty engines with a full dose of oil and lube (a $30 value). A new filter inoculates cars against oil-borne contaminants and other vehicular viruses, while windshields wipe their brows in relief with newly installed blades (a $34 value). After a team of trusty wheel-wranglers rotates tires to balance tread wear (a $15 value), a thorough safety check scrutinizes two dozen essential elements for signs of trouble, such as cracked casings or failed emissions tests stuffed into the undercarriage.

There's also a team ready to handle glass and hail-damage repairs. In addition to its auto-body services, West County's team also boasts ASE-certified technicians who perform full-service mechanical repairs on all makes and models, including state-licensed vehicle inspections. Most jobs come backed by a lifetime warranty.
The adept automotive aces at Aamco focus their collective mechanical genius on your car's every whirring gear during this comprehensive tune-up. Parched motors get a tasty five-quarts of fresh, 5w30 or 10w30 motor oil to lubricate their machinery for smoother commutes, safer road trips, and swifter maneuvering around banana peels (a $29.95 value). Next, a tire rotation (a $15 value) ensures wheels spin safely and evenly, helping avoid pesky single tire replacements and unexpected blowouts, while a fresh set of wiper blades makes for better visibility during rain, hail, and attack by mynock (a $15 value). An added battery check will make certain your people mover's power is fully charged, healthy, and ready for more miles, and that no garage elves have been using it to power their weather machine again.

Once exteriors are clean and shiny, car-wash attendants groom interiors by vacuuming up dirt, clearing smudges from windows, and donating old pine-tree air fresheners to the deprived lumberjacks of the world.
