• For $45, you get an intermediate service check-up with oil change (up to a $108 value). • For $49, you get an express automotive detail (a $99 value). Swedish Motors' stable of ASE-certified technicians have propelled and purified cars for 30 years. During the 45-minute inspection and oil change service, a tech will pump up to six quarts of trajectory juice into thirsty four-wheeled steeds. Automotive medics replace the filter cartridge and drain the plug gasket before inspecting fluid levels, belts, brakes, and hoses. Tires swell with pride after passing tread wear and condition tests, and garage gurus inspect ventilation systems, suspension, and exhaust before cleaning the wiper blades and flicking the exterior lights to temporarily blind charging sasquatches. Alternatively, muddied cars can indulge in up to three hours of sanitization with an express detail. After an exterior hand wash and hand wax, vacuums scour interiors for debris and dirt. Windows leap to alertness after being scrubbed from foggy slumbers, and wheel and tire dressings spread soothing balms across wheels to ensure a firm grip when shaking hands with the highway.
At Brenner Nissan, Nissan-certified technicians perform oil changes to spruce up weary engines just as bubble baths spruce up toddlers and bubble-loving adults. All oil changes come with complimentary 27-multipoint inspections, brief car checkups that help maintain good vehicular health. Brenner Nissan's work is guaranteed for 12 months or 12,000 miles and oil-change appointments, like wearing chain mail while wrestling a bear, are highly recommended but not required.
The Audio Connection's award-winning team of technicians customizes mobile investments with a complete range of audio equipment, security systems, and electronics upgrades.

Alternatively, smartphones and MP3 players can be integrated into dashboards, allowing for easy charging and music access. The hands-free Bluetooth kit's voice dialing and redial features keep commutes safe and respect state laws that prohibit drivers from talking on handsets or steering with their knees.
