Staffed by National Windshield Repair Association technicians, TNT Auto Glass restores scathed windshields with their lifetime-guaranteed glass-repair services. The crew welcome vehicles into their garages in Mooresville, Concord, and Denver to dole out free estimates, patch up small chips and cracks, and replace entire windows and windshields. They also travel directly to driveways for vehicles that, like a teenage girl after a breakup, are too damaged to move.
At Sizzling Wok Restaurant, the vibrant interior only pales in comparison to the bright and fragrant cuisine. The pink and red dining room sets the table for a menu of classic Chinese cuisine.

Parks Chevrolet’s skillful team of technicians nurtures chariots with thorough oil-change packages. With each Maintenance I package (a $28.95 value each), they’ll douse engines in up to five quarts of fresh oil, replace ragged filters, and chase away lost penguins nesting in the fan belt. Then, they’ll slather lubricant onto steering and transaxle shift linkages, underbody contact points, and parking-brake cable guides, reducing friction to improve overall auto performance. After mechanics top off thirsty fluids and check tire pressures, jalopies will be prepped to sail smoothly across asphalt oceans for another 3,000 miles.
