Offering honest, thorough service since 1982, Ferber’s Tire & Auto hosts a slew of automotive treatments to repair and maintain cars of every make and model. Four-wheeled steeds are lured into the garage by a trail of shiny lug nuts in preparation for a full oil switcheroo. During the roughly one-hour process, a certified technician gently pats the car’s hood as spent oil drains into a pan.
