Led by head technician Scott "Yogi" Montaquila, Clinton Tire & Repair's technicians specialize in oil changes, brake inspections, and tire rotations. Their services also include balancing wheels, inspecting belts for correct alignment, and ensuring that air conditioners are loaded with enough snowballs to power them through summer. Besides performing maintenance work, Clinton Tire & Repair's crew outfits vehicles with parts from Bridgestone and Cooper alongside tires and wheels from manufacturers such as Nexen Tire and Mickey Thompson. The garage's technicians are available to tinker with cars Monday–Saturday.
CSN Auto Detail's technicians illuminate vehicles with hand-rendered cleaning services and manager-inspected results. During auto-bathing treatments such as the regular wash ride revampers swipe soft towels over car exoskeletons to eliminate road-acquired debris from exterior plating, tire rims, and racing parachutes. Technicians apply additional tire dressings before tackling untidy interiors with a thorough vacuuming, window cleaning, and dash dusting.
It may look like a two-story home, but the brown building on Melendy Road is indeed Zak’s Auto Industries, where ASE-certified technicians take in cars of all makes and models for a range of services. In addition to offering oil changes, complete frame repairs, and engine rebuilds, the family-owned shop doubles as an official New Hampshire inspection station where drivers can ensure that their vehicles meet the standards required by state law.
At more than a dozen locations throughout the northeast, ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers' computerized wash tunnels and detailing pros spiff up cars with advanced technology and minimal environmental impact. The robotic wash systems and photoelectric sensors not only clean finishes with a gentle, soft-cloth technique, but they can target white walls, wheels, and chrome with site-specific formulas. The eco-savvy automated systems also consume less water than home washing and recycle the water used to clean the wheels and undercarriage. Biodegradable SuperGlo soap keeps the run-off free of harmful compounds before it is funneled down the proper treatment channels, where it can't pollute neighborhood storm drains or be used to test the resiliency of carnival goldfish.
The centers' innovative equipment and Earth-friendly practices have earned them the title of Best Car Wash from CityVoter for three years running. Some locations also boast separate interior cleaning bays to address filthy dashboards and seats.
Most of Boston Car Care's locations open shop seven days a week. That's because they know that mechanical problems can happen throughout the week, and that engines don't always take Sundays off for diesel-mimosa brunches. So technicians stand by all weeklong to bring cars to peak performance. In addition to oil changes, tire rotations, and inspections, the team offers comprehensive car-care packages that cover a balanced diet of maintenance. These care packages promise the full attention of a qualified technician, who takes a close look at the engine, tires, belts, and bristles in order to keep cars on the road and off the shoulder.
