Devonshire Discount Tire & Auto Center may have more than 60 years of service backing its reputation, but it probably didn’t have an online tire finder when it first opened its doors. The tire-finder system—which takes into account a car’s year, make, and model—cuts out the guesswork by spotlighting reasonable replacements and price quotes, as well as allowing customers to purchase tires online. Tires are then delivered to the shop, where the staff can affix them to the axles or use them to upgrade the nearest rope swing. This is just one way in which Devonshire Discount Tire & Auto Center works to convenience its clients, who can also come into the shop for repairs or maintenance services such as oil changes, collision repairs, or computerized engine analysis. And to sweeten select services, qualified repairs come with an extensive warranty on parts and labor.
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.
Ministering to a host of domestic and foreign models, Midland Avenue Automotive preps roadsters for the slippery and windswept winter driving season with timely auto services. Technicians re-sole steel ponies with a seasonal changeover service, swapping mild-mannered all-season tires for customer-provided sets their winter compatriots. Auto experts balance rugged rubber snowshoes and pop the hood for a 30-point inspection that double-checks fluid levels, scans belts and hoses, and removes baking gingerbread from the engine block before it burns. Mechanics also install a new set of windshield-wiper blades, helping drivers safely squash the arrival of each delicate and unique snowflake.
