A1 Auto Temecula's noble acts of vehicular upkeep earned it the title of Best Auto Service and Repair Facility in the Riverside County Press-Enterprise's 2010 Annual Readers' Choice poll. During two oil changes, A1's mechanics drain depleted auto life essence before re-revving engines with a new filter and up to 6 quarts of conventional motor oil. This treatment works for any car, SUV, or Popemobile that takes regular oil, but synthetic oil incurs an additional charge.
The team of mechanics at Meineke Car Care Center performs a slew of services to keep autos running smoothly and efficiently. During the preferred oil change, techs drain each motor wagon's old, broken-down oil and replace it with up to five quarts of young, wide-eyed oil ready to undertake the task of protecting the car's hundreds of banging parts. Along with the oil change, a tire rotation works to prevent uneven wear, and 23 automotive components sit through a thorough inspection and stern lecture. In an effort to bolster highway performance and ward off breakdowns, mechanics wrap up the preferred oil change by checking tire balance and pressure and topping off each steely steed's fluids and tear-duct reservoirs. The supreme package further ensures proper tread by balancing wheels, a service that helps extend the lifespan of tires, bearings, shocks, and other suspension components. Customers can generally expect 30–40 minutes of waiting time while Meineke's experts tweak delighted rides.
Technicians at The Tint Shop coat car windows in Llumar Window Films, which block out 99% of the sun's UV rays. The two-hour treatment covers portals with an upgraded tinted film and can help to preserve upholstery, reduce glare, and enhance autos' aura of mystery by giving them a Secret Service code name. Backed by a lifetime warranty, films should last without cracking, bubbling, or fading. Removing old window tint requires an additional fee, as it forces stubborn cars to temporarily reveal what's driving them inside.
Motorists can treat their hacking and wheezing motorcar to a trio of oil changes at eOilChange.com's participating auto shops. During each 30-minute service, skilled technicians replace used motor oil with up to 6 quarts of standard engine juice and install a new oil filter to ensure vehicles' veins pump clean, contaminant-free oil. Most autos are welcome, save trucks that weigh more than one ton, and all three services must be performed on the same vehicle. Drivers have 365 days to use all three oil changes at a single location, which means cars won't need to suck fresh oil from vulnerable pump jacks for at least a year.
Continuing a 57-year legacy, the experienced mobile-electronics technicians at Al & Ed's Autosound equip car owners with safe driving solutions during two-hour hands-free Bluetooth installations. Armed with an extensive arsenal of adapters, the technicians integrate Parrot CK3000 Evolution Bluetooth units with existing audio systems, allowing calls to be heard through the vehicle's speakers. Any phone equipped with Bluetooth connectivity can sync with the handy hands-free device, regardless of manufacturer or carrier. Responding to voice commands from the driver, the unit conjures up contacts from its database of up to 150 names when called upon, much like a faithful robotic court wizard.
