The technicians at Bumper to Bumper Audio are by no means behind the times, despite being in business for more than 20 years. Instead, they constantly update their stock and installation techniques, outfitting clients' cars with everything from stereos to window tinting to remote-start systems to GPS devices. They cull their equipment from top retailers—such as Sony, Viper, Sirius, and Rockford—and provide lengthy warranties for their installation services.
At HMG Auto Repair, owner Danielle wields a decade of technical experience at Volkswagen, Nissan, and private garages to ensure vehicles leave her custody with reliable remote-control starters. After owners book their car for an overnight stint in HMG's auto lodge, staffers supplement traditional ignitions with an automatic starter. Attached to a specialized remote, the system allows vehicles to warm their interiors and any leftover hot dogs on the dashboard before their owners' chilly morning commute.
Ultimate Sound & Security personalizes vehicles with a variety of services and a litany of automotive accessories, such as custom wheels, stereos, and amp racks. Techs can also raise or lower vehicles and install everything from alarm systems to remote starters, which allow drivers to start cars with remotes or by blinking five times in rapid succession.
Since 1986, M&M Quality Automotive has cared for cars with expert preventive and repair services. A team of
ASE Master technicians follow the Tech-Net code of ethics as they adjust alignment and maintain chassis with the skill of a Boy Scout whittling a new uniform. M&M also retools worn-out transmissions and repairs windshields wrecked in collisions, rolling wounded rides to its facility with a 24-hour tow truck. Cozy black leather chairs and lush plants dot a waiting area where drivers can prep for reunions with their own cars or first dates with the shop's fleet of rental cars and U-Hauls.
Payless Car Sales features a large inventory of pre-owned vehicles from domestic and foreign manufacturers. Each car on the lot or inside the showroom comes with a 127-point inspection and free vehicle-history report, which can tell you if your car ever drove through a wall or dabbled in diesel oil. Technicians are also on hand in the service department for oil changes, tire rotations, and other services that keep cars running smoothly.
