The knowledgeable technicians at Funk Bros. Complete Auto Repair care for domestic and imported cars under the supervision of the same service-oriented family that founded the shop in 1925. A slew of preventative services, such as oil changes and air-filter replacements, ward off latent malfunctions, and mechanics also tackle full-blown repairs, taking the time to carefully explain each adjustment to customers. Funk Bros. has also been hired to tune up vehicles on movie sets, from stuntmen’s souped-up cars to directors’ limos made from melted award statuettes.
The ASE-certified mechanics that staff FixCarNow's five locations reinvigorate cars with Castrol GTX oils and preempt problems with sweeping diagnostics. During each one-hour premium oil change, techs drain contaminated lubricants and replace them with up to five quarts of clean oil (synthetic available for an additional fee). New filters then assume guard duty in place of their dirty predecessors, intercepting dirt and rumors about recent monster-truck sightings. A 16-point diagnostic inspection takes techs on a tour of car’s vital components, and includes a brake inspection, chassis lube, fluid top off, and wiper-blade check. Service bays happily hoist cars up for fluid transfusions seven days a week, meaning drivers can no longer use busy schedules or observance of Take Your Unicycle to Work Day as an excuse for shirking automotive duties.
The traveling technicians at Aaron's Mobile Detailing arrive armed with an arsenal of high-tech cleaning products to sanitize cars, SUVs, and trucks. As vehicles loiter in their own driveways or parking spaces, the staff performs an eco-friendly hand wash and slaps on coats of wax to evoke a shine that sunrays dream of ice-skating across. The detail also includes an interior vacuum, a full interior wipe-down, exterior trim and tire dressing, rim shining, and choice of air freshener. Add-on upgrades are available at an additional cost.
Since 1983, Find It All Audio has outfitted cars with custom audio, video, and security gadgets, leading them to earn a spot on LA HotList's roster of the Best Places to Pimp Your Ride. The shop's manufacturer-trained technicians specialize exclusively in auto accessories, which range from laser-cut, heat-resistant window tints to GPS systems and iPhone, Android, and telegraph integration. They even protect newly installed gadgets, including audio and video systems by Pioneer, Sony, and Viper, with vehicle security systems.
Glass Doctor's uniformed technicians pride themselves on being able to fix any type of glass, whether it's for a home, vehicle, or storefront. For residences, they outfit windows and doors with low-emissivity glass panes that reduce glares, control room climates, and detract ultraviolet rays more effectively than outfitting your house in a T-shirt. Depending on the damage, they can mend windshield nicks during repair services or do a full replacement with original-equipment-manufacturer windshields, which sport a lifetime nationwide warranty at more than 300 locations. For customers that need a specific shape or style of glass, the staff can design, cut, and install custom mirrors, shower doors, and tabletop glass.
