Brake-O-Rama began as one location in 1949 but now boasts 14 service centers speckled across the East Coast. Together these automotive hospitals work as a force, repairing and maintaining domestic and imported vehicles of virtually any make and model. Before sourcing spare parts from the company's private warehouses, Brake-O-Rama's ASE-certified technicians thoroughly analyze vehicles with advanced diagnostic technology that includes four-wheel computerized alignment systems, electron microscopes that scan for chipped paint finishes, and magnifying glasses ever in search for clues to Professor Plum's murder. Meanwhile, Firestone, Goodyear, and Michelin tires fill the supply closets, allowing the patrons to tighten their grip on the asphalt before a cross-country trip.

The certified technicians at Bay Street Auto Center's five locations keep cars road ready and street legal with New York state inspections and oil changes. Techs begin inspections by examining the battery and starting charging system, taking pains to confirm that the battery has an active charge and hasn't been using all its energy taunting solar panels. Techs then aim their expertise at tires, scrutinize the brakes to confirm safe stopping, check the suspension, and conclude the examination by casting trained eyes and hands at belts and hoses. Oil changes drain dirty and damaged oils before replacing them with up to 5 quarts of conventional motor oil (synthetic available for an additional charge) and a new filter to guard the engine from contaminants and invitations to the transmission’s next fondue night.
