The family behind Fletcher's Tire & Auto Service opened their first shop more than four decades ago. Today, they operate more than 30 locations scattered throughout Arizona, where they work to provide automobiles and their owners with expert repairs and preventive maintenance. Technicians keep cars safely running, stopping, and creeping slowly past ex-girlfriends' houses with regular maintenance services such as oil changes, alignments, and air filter replacement. Oil changes come with a battery test and a tire rotation to ensure that tires wear evenly, and most services are backed by warranties that start at 12 months and 12,000 miles. More than 15 brands of tires get paired with appropriate chariots thanks to a convenient online tire-size guide, and computerized alignment services help improve gas mileage and safety.
Big O Tires outfits wheels with tires from Michelin, Goodyear and other trusted brands, all backed by a three-year warranty and a lifetime of rotations. The retailer has been in the road-ready rubber trade since 1962, when it began as a single co-op; over the past five decades, it has blossomed into a network of more than 500 locations, spanning 21 states. The shops’ ASE-certified technicians not only specialize in tires, but also tend autos with a comprehensive array of repair and maintenance services. They deftly change oil, replace brakes, and meticulously administer free 22-point safety inspections, which ensure that headlights work and that wiper blades aren’t actually sleeping rattlesnakes.
The mechanics at Car Guy LLC take the guesswork out of vehicle maintenance by pairing complimentary diagnostics test with every repair and service they perform. This simple step alerts clients to a range of issues that are swiftly resolved through the use of advanced car products such as synthetic 5W-20 and 5W-30 oil formulations, semimetallic brake pads, and Dextron and Mercon transmission fluid. Though Car Guy's staff members pride themselves on speedy service, they’re also not afraid to encourage horseplay around the shop. Their onsite playroom is fully stocked with board games, plush toys, and other fun for the kids who are so often forced cope with the temporary absence of dad’s AM talk radio.
At SSC Auto Repair, teams of tight-knit, hardworking mechanics extend the life of precious vehicles with expert technique. SSC’s technicians ply their trade with the backing of ASE master certification, ably repairing or maintaining customers’ second most costly investment after their multistory treehouse. A complimentary general safety inspection on each vehicle uncovers any hidden troubles, and free shuttle service within a 5-mile radius ferries customers to home, work, or appointments with ease. In addition to restoring engines from disrepair or treating cars to speedy routine maintenance, SSC Auto Repair manifests its commitment to the community through its relationships with Packages From Home and Salvation Army donation drives.
Each Francis and Sons Car Wash facility features skilled staffers who cleanse vehicles with biodegradable solutions and perform vehicle maintenance like caruba waxes and vinyl conditioning. Washes, which range from basic rinses to complete interior and exterior makeovers, enlist spacious wash tunnels and soft cloths to scour paint, and hands wrapped in towels and feet gripping blow-dryers to dispel moisture. The multifarious auto stop provides detailing, repair, and oil-change services at the hands of certified auto technicians who also tint windows and butterfly-kiss rearview mirrors for good luck.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with professional brake services including a lifetime warranty on parts, labor and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, suspension repair, and belt replacement.
