Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigour with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to U.S. EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
The doors to A and J Auto Service’s work bays first slid open in 1982. Since then, the ASE-certified technicians have been tending to engines, electronics, brakes, and tires during maintenance and repair services backed by Certified Auto Repair’s nationwide warranties. With Mother Earth in mind, the shop also employs a professional disposal company to recycle or dispose of their waste, preventing old motor oil from seeping into groundwater and old air fresheners from being planted in forests.
Hollywood’s most famous residents get hand-pampered until their skin shines, a trick to looking good they may have picked up the local Vineland Car Wash. Here, technicians use soap and elbow grease to scrub signs of wear from vehicle exteriors, following up with a coat of wax that keeps the cars looking like new. A typical scrub down ends with the hanging of an air freshener from the rearview mirror, a parting gift akin to a breath mint after a dinner of soap.
