With America's Best Car Care Plan, ASE-certified technicians keep autos running smoothly by injecting car insides with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional oil (upgrades to synthetic require additional charges) and performing a host of auto-maintenance services. Brake inspections and adjustments grant drivers the peace of mind that cars are safe and equipped for inclement weather and duck-crossing signs that come out of nowhere. Two tire rotations ensure automotive equilibrium can find long-lasting balance and tire grooves wear evenly.
Specializing in Toyotas, Elk Grove Toyota’s troupe of automobile experts extends the vehicular lifespans of all makes and models with a lineup of lubricating oil changes, detailed inspections, and whole-body scrub-downs. Mechanics whet automotive appetites by swapping out mucky oil with fresh servings of lubricant, bestowing engines with a healthy purr and keeping automotive whooping cough at bay. A multipoint inspection puts cars in the limelight with a skillful technician scrutinizing vehicles bumper to bumper for worn-out tires, lethargic wiper blades, and squeaky brakes. Cars reap the reward for good behavior with a trip through the carwash vestibule, complete with a sudsy scrubbing and belly-scratch.
Don and Rick Wood, owners of Cooks Collision, can trace their auto-repair roots back to the 1930s. Their grandfather, Clyde, built cars for Ford Motor Company and later started his own body shop, where he passed his knowledge on to his son, Bob. After working as a body-shop manager for Saltnes Volkswagen, Bob took out a mortgage against his family home and purchased Cooks Auto Body, fulfilling his dream of starting his own shop?just like his dad. Today, Don and Rick carry on the family legacy with more than 30 locations, dozens of employees, and one magical vintage racecar. Their ASE-certified mechanics are factory-certified by Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Jaguar, and Volvo, and they repair around 30,000 cars each year.
