Founded in 1975 by Brendan Donnelly and now run by Brendan’s son and daughter, Brendan's Service Station and Brendan's Utopia Mobil extend the life of automobiles with maintenance services performed at the hands of ASE–certified mechanics. After apprenticing under their father, the brother-and-sister team took up the mantle of automotive care in 1995, overseeing speedy oil changes, tire rotations, and tune-ups that reduce the ravages of time, heat, and moving mechanical parts. The talented team plies its trade with a professional and amiable air, repairing engines or executing factory-scheduled maintenance with the benefit of years of on-the-job experience and a strong affinity for the smell of gasoline.
With participating locations nationwide, Auto Care Special lets customers reach out to their local garages for a grab bag of free and discounted maintenance services. Cards may be redeemed for multiple vehicles over the course of one year for services such as oil changes, safety inspections, and engine-light diagnoses. Those who move or create alter-egos over the course of the year can scan the locations page for participating garages in their new cities of residence to receive a complimentary maintenance bundle.
The skilled staff at Five Corners takes care to bring out your ride's natural beauty. Unlike competitor car washes, who use porcupine brushes and battery acid, Five Corners hand washes your vehicle using gentle, ecologically conscious products. A thorough cleaning of automobile innards removes fossilized fries and lingering reminders of straw-slurp failures, and the outside cleaning includes a high-pressure poly-glaze wax—a Teflon-fortified wax that preserves your exterior finish. A tire dressing imbues wheels with a fierce fashion sense and runway-worthy strut. Lastly, a pressure sprayer applies a silicone-based body gloss by Simoniz, coating your ride in a silky smooth protective casing capable of deflecting short-sighted flies and pigeon parting gifts.
Pitstop Lube and Tune's technicians keep automobiles running smoothly as they carry on a company legacy of top-notch service that spans more than two decades. After cars enter a four-bay center, techs can drain old oil, inspect systems, and administer tune-ups with the aid of computerized equipment. Aside from routine maintenance, the crew also completes in depth repairs such as replacing transmissions and reshoeing all of an engine's horses.
