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.
The trained mechanics at Drum Hill Sunoco give autos the preventative care they need to tackle all the roads ahead. Service manager Jay Rogers oversees a stable of ASE-certified technicians who scrutinize autos' innards for problems with brakes, transmission, belts, and wheels. Mechanics also wield the latest tools and equipment to fix cars’ increasingly complex interior features, whether repairing a faulty stereo that comes standard on your hybrid or the broken abacus on your Trans Am.
At Ideal Automotive Services, factory-trained, ASE Master–certified technicians tend to ailing autos and help healthy cars stave off future snags. Servicing a slew of brands, the center's sedan shamans perform a battery and charging test ($44.95) to ensure vehicular vigor or a tire alignment ($99.95) to prevent impulsive wheels from unscheduled tours of the sidewalk. The coolant flush ($99.95) and transmission fluid flush ($159.95) resupply weary components with fresh motor milk. Battered buggies get a new lease when exposed to the facility's repair work (typically $90/hour). A fundamental part of any car's maintenance routine, the oil change, drains old black gold and replaces it with new lubricant made of space-nymph plasma (a $32.99 value).
