Liberty Auto?s mechanics slip under hoods and chassis to keep autos trundling asphalt jungles with few hiccups and even fewer breakdowns. The techs specialize in vehicular-maintenance services?such as oil changes and visual inspections?that help prolong the lives of cars.
Pro Drive's expert mechanics, who collectively have serviced more than 50,000 vehicles, will uncork your vehicle, let the dirty oil drain out, and replace it with brand new 10W30 oil and a new filter to match. All vehicle bloods are checked and topped off, and Pro Drive will ensure that all under-hood spinners, twirlers, and hummers are operating correctly. Tires get rotated (and balanced, if needed) and the air pressure is adjusted to meet factory recommendations. During the procedure, which takes about 45–60 minutes, guests can peruse a stack of magazines in the comfortable lobby, sip coffee and water, or grab a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant. Car and driver can rest assured, because all work has a warranty and Pro Drive is BBB-rated A.
For more than 20 years, the certified technicians at DEKRA Emission Check have done one thing and done it well: superfast Georgia-state vehicle-emissions inspections. Although most patrons choose to stay in the car and alphabetize their eight-track collection during the typically five-minute inspection, many of the growing list of almost 30 Atlanta-area locations feature an indoor lounge for auto owners to kick back in. If a vehicle?s emissions exceed the regulated limit, the team advises drivers of their options and performs a free retest at a later date.
Since its creation in 1925, DEKRA Emission Check?s umbrella company, DEKRA, has grown to include more than 30,000 employees in 50 countries. In addition to having performed more than three million vehicle inspections in the United States, the larger business offers services such as expert appraisals, industrial product testing and certifications, and management-system certifications.
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 package, 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—all of which 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 offer preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical-system maintenance, among others. 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.
More than 50 years ago, Mr. Transmission's technicians performed their first fix-up job. In the half century since then, the staffers have become experts at repairing manuals, automatics, and semiautomatics. They offer maintenance for transmissions and can rebuild them more effectively than a squirrel can stash things, be they acorns or auto parts. Mr. Transmission also offers free performance checks, a nationwide warranty, and AC tune-ups.
