When cars leave Dr. Smog N Lube, they roll out with an engine full of new, clean oil and a clean bill of health from the state. Technicians bolster cars with regular- and synthetic-oil changes, tire rotations, and safety inspections that check 18 separate points. During state-emission inspections, the staff tests each car to make sure its smog output is below the legal limit and awards passing vehicles with a state-certified approval before sending them on their way to brag about it at the nearest gas pump.
Parking a car outside leaves it vulnerable to wind, rain, and—in some cases—roofing tar. Fortunately, 26th Street Auto Center’s team of highly trained mechanics—who are also certificated in auto-paint reconditioning services––is able to restore these kinds of defiled vehicles, as shown on their Facebook page. The staff also applies their knowledge of automotive repair and maintenance––from tire replacement and oil changes to interior detailing and air-conditioning repairs––to any type of foreign or domestic car. In addition, they exude even more confidence when tending to hybrids and rare luxury vehicles, such as Teslas and Fiskers, much like a rocket scientist building a papier-mâché volcano.
Knollwood Tire Center's friendly mechanics have to holster a vast set of skills in their metaphorical tool belts. That's because they're expected to do it all, from routine oil changes and tire rotation to diagnosing electrical problems and repairing diesel engines. Installing and repairing tires is their calling card. With a deep stock of major brands on hand—including Michelin, Goodyear, and Yokohama—techs can meet the varied needs of both discerning customers and children demanding a specific brand of tire swing.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car?it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
As a STAR-certified emissions tester, Franklin Smog Test Only helps drivers do their part to keep the air clean in Los Angeles and beyond. Owners simply pull their vehicles into the garage and let the experienced techs bring emissions systems into compliance with state regulations the correct way, rather than just rubber-banding a coffee filter over an exhaust pipe. In addition to being the law, the service helps drivers minimize their carbon footprint and maximize their contribution to a cleaner environment.
