Santa Fe Garage Services' Automotive Service Excellence–certified master technician Greg Smith employs his alignment and tire expertise to inspect a vehicle's chassis during four-wheel alignment checks. Roll horseless carriages into the awaiting yellow jaws of the alignment rack, where Smith will carefully check and reset the buggy to factory alignment specifications. The auto technician harnesses calibrated Hunter Engineering Company equipment to square the auto during the alignment check with toe adjustment, which entails measuring and adjusting the rear and front axels to reduce rapid tire wear, alter unsatisfactory vehicle handling, and eliminate snippy back talk. Smith then utilizes the Road Force tire balancer with StraightTrak to eradicate vibration issues and ensure smoother driving. The visit also includes a quick peek beneath the roadster to inspect the undercarriage for clingy tumbleweeds or a stash of unpaid parking tickets.

McCarthy Blue Springs Nissan's experienced technicians spruce up automobiles with restorative vehicle services that improve vehicles' drivability and extend the life of automotive parts. To kick off the automobile's 45 minutes of pampering, mechanics thoroughly assess overall health with a multipoint inspection that detects impending problems, easy fixes, and the chewed-up gum in the glove box. A tire rotation ensures rubber wears down evenly on all four car-shoes, and an oil change replaces old, dirty oil with tasty fresh oil. This Groupon also covers a second 30-minute oil change further down the road, since oil, like a vampire vaccine, increases in effectiveness when administered more than once a year.
