At a family-run auto shop, Rick and his son Jeremy lead a team of mechanics ready to tackle all automotive needs. They accomplish a wide range of services for American and foreign cars, including engine tuning, brake repair, and electrical diagnosis. Their expertise also extends to exhaust troubles as well as the installation of truck accessories and trailer hitches.
The ASE-certified mechanics at Pete's Tires and Automotive Service scrutinize cars made in 1996 or later to ensure they meet the state's safety and emissions expectations. During the state inspection, trained eyes gaze into the depths of your car, analyzing the exhaust system, tinkering with turn signals and headlights, and testing the horn by honking through your favorite rock song. Technicians also gauge tire pressure and fiddle with the seat belts, parking brakes, and windshield wipers. After checking the brake system to verify that the brakes are powerful enough to stop cars from trying to race into every destruction derby they pass, the auto doctors bring the one-hour service to an end with a tire rotation.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
