ASE-certified Precision Tune Auto Care helps vehicles of all sorts run smoothly by performing top-of-the-line maintenance and repair services. The vehicular spa day begins with a full-service oil change, where a team of talented techs pours up to 5 quarts of 5W-20 or 5W-30 oil into thirsty autos while decking out happily oil-drunk engines with brand-new filters. Tires bask in equally tender treatment during a rotation, which promotes even wear and tear and gives easily bored circular sightseers a new vantage point. Upon completion, an alignment check finds out if anything is needed to keep cars rolling in a straight line. Precision Tune Auto Care's professional vehicle pamperers also stabilize tires' rubbery moods by treating them to lifetime balancing until they bounce off to the big wheelhouse in the sky. A visual brake inspection assesses the stoppers' surfaces for resistance capabilities, unusual noises, or grinding tendencies.
