The ASE-certified technicians at Charles Automotive have spent the last 37 years neck-deep in car hoods and undercarriages. Their scheduled maintenance checkups, oil changes, and fluid flushes keep cars hugging the road for years to come, and their skilled repair services ensure that engines, transmissions, and brakes operate in peak form. For cars with unsteady traction or insatiable shoe-shopping addictions, technicians pull from a wide selection of new tires and perform rotations and balancing to give them an even gait and a firm grip on slippery roads. Once vehicles have departed the garage full of vigor and fresh fluids, technicians make sure to recycle all used oils and coolants to keep them from harming the planet. The staff also offers pickup and drop-off services at the nearby Metro station for customers temporarily bereft of their trusty rides.
LXT Automotive's ASE-certified mechanics harness their experience to conduct extensive maintenance services, helping ensure efficient air-conditioning operations in hot summer months. The team will visually inspect belts for cracks or damage, and compressors for proper operation, before vacuum testing the air-conditioning system, adding dyes to find leaks and prepare hoses for upcoming Grateful Dead concerts. After evacuating existing refrigerant from the system, LXT's cool-air coaches will recharge the system with the appropriate amount and type of refrigerant in accordance with the vehicle's factory specifications. Ever the gracious guests, technicians will place floor mats and seat covers before servicing vehicles so as not to sully the interiors of prima-donna autos.
Transgap Executive Limousine's fleet of sleek black sedans have been ferrying customers to and from DC's airports for more than a decade. The punctual, polite drivers know the city better than its founders, Romulus and Remus, preventing delays when heading to the airport or unnecessary detours on the way back home. And the town cars' plush leather interiors make passengers feel like the kings and queens they are, at least until they get to the airport security checkpoint.
Herb Gordon Volvo scrubs, buffs, and polishes each car under its care to leave virtually every inch of vehicle unsullied inside and out. During a four-hour full detailing, the latest products caress the vehicle's exterior as it's cleaned, buffed, and waxed, and an interior shampoo creates a hospitable environment for backseat drivers, backseat passengers, and front-seat cupcake peddlers. The dealership's experienced detailers dress the tires to a handsome gleam, and the engine is thoroughly divested of grime and debris. If customers wish, the staff can employ the deodorizing powers of an electronic air purifier to clear the interior atmosphere of smoky odors and bad vibes.
