Outfitted with crisp red shirts and hands well versed in shop talk, SCR Auto Center’s car custodians expertly execute a robust array of automotive services. During each oil change, chariots, like homesick astronauts, gulp down up to 5 quarts of 5W-30 oil and wipe the corners of their mouths with new filters (cartridge filters not included) before a tasting menu of fresh fluids further whet thirsty receptacles. Technicians then rotate tires into a comfortable radius and thoroughly inspect vehicles in search of disrepair and defects. To top off the automotive spa package, exteriors receive a thorough scrub down and a kiss on the cheek, given ever so gently. SCR Auto Center’s waiting area stocks complimentary coffee, refreshments, and Internet, and an early-bird drop-off option accommodates drivers’ busy schedules.

Family-owned and operated since 1983, EMC Collision nurses cars back to glowing health in a state-of-the-art three-acre facility and show room. With a thorough detailing service, dingy vehicles are scrubbed by hand, receive a clay bar treatment, and are lovingly waxed to a disco-ball level of shininess. Inside, carpets and mats reluctantly give in to a shampooing, and two separate vacuum passes suck up crumbs from never-delivered get-well-soon cakes. A leather treatment, tire shining, and a hand dry complete the ride-cleaning process. The second option includes a safety inspection –– all fluids, brakes, and the air filter are checked. Maverick tires are set straight using an advanced laser computer-alignment system, vehicular vitals are secured, and worrisome illuminations of the check-engine light are diagnosed as electrical problems or pathetic cries for attention.
For more than 30 years, Precision has helped vehicles of all sorts run smoothly with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services.

The automotive pampering lasts about an hour, during which mechanics dispose of all waste and crumbs from half-eaten parking tickets stuck in the engine. Technicians conclude the ride renovation with a brake inspection to ensure effective stopping post-drive-away. After motor coaches have returned to their youthful, showroom condition, drivers can register for online service reminders, never again relying on their car's unreliable telepathy abilities.
