Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigour with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to U.S. EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
Big O Tires outfits wheels with tires from Michelin, Goodyear and other trusted brands–including their own Big O brand tires that are backed by a three-year warranty and a lifetime of rotations. The retailer has been in the road-ready rubber trade since 1962, when it began as a single co-op; over the past five decades, it has blossomed into a network of more than 480 locations, spanning 20 states. The shops’ ASE-certified technicians not only specialize in tires, but also tend autos with a comprehensive array of repair and maintenance services. They deftly change oil, replace brakes, and meticulously administer multi-point inspections, which ensure that headlights work and that wiper blades aren’t actually sleeping rattlesnakes.
For the last decade, the team at Audio 2000 has updated Southern California homes and vehicles with the latest iterations of ever-changing technology.

The crew can also install equipment to make driving safer and more convenient, such as GPS systems, backup cameras, and tiny mouthwash cup holders—all without jeopardizing the car's warranty or lease terms.
