Parking a car outside leaves it vulnerable to wind, rain, and—in some cases—roofing tar. Fortunately, 26th Street Auto Center’s team of highly trained mechanics—who are also certificated in auto-paint reconditioning services––is able to restore these kinds of defiled vehicles, as shown on their Facebook page. The staff also applies their knowledge of automotive repair and maintenance––from tire replacement and oil changes to interior detailing and air-conditioning repairs––to any type of foreign or domestic car. In addition, they exude even more confidence when tending to hybrids and rare luxury vehicles, such as Teslas and Fiskers, much like a rocket scientist building a papier-mâché volcano.
Culver Automotive's ASE-certified technicians freshen engines with new oil while hunting for signs of excessive wear, making sure cars are healthy before they head back out to wander the asphalt. During each oil change, a new filter and up to 5 quarts of oil bring a fresh perspective to the engine's lubrication system, helping minimize engine wear and keep gas mileage at a maximum. While under the hood, auto whisperers inspect air cleaners, hoses, and belts, reporting any damage or stowaway junkyard parts to the owner. Though repairs are not included in today's Groupon, first-time customers will receive a 10% discount on labor.
The lobby at Ray-A-Motive inspires nostalgia from the moment clients walk in. Above checkerboard tile, a display case towers in the style of a classic Shell gas pump. Despite the retrospective atmosphere, the Automotive Service Excellence–certified, circa-1986 garage traffics in the most modern of automotive care. Oil changes, emissions tests, and repair services keep rides in working order. The team also is experienced in working with RVs, effortlessly fixing malfunctioning powertrains, and figuring out why honking the horn turns on the microwave.
As a STAR-certified emissions tester, Franklin Smog Test Only helps drivers do their part to keep the air clean in Los Angeles and beyond. Owners simply pull their vehicles into the garage and let the experienced techs bring emissions systems into compliance with state regulations the correct way, rather than just rubber-banding a coffee filter over an exhaust pipe. In addition to being the law, the service helps drivers minimize their carbon footprint and maximize their contribution to a cleaner environment.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
Regardless of what logo brands your vehicle, A1 Automotive's ASE-certified technicians will welcome the ride into their full-service maintenance and repair shop and provide fast, quality service. They perform an array of automotive services, from brake repairs and oil changes to engine diagnostics and tuneups.
