The licensed and BASF-certified technicians from Pacific Match Paint travel to their customers to render a wide range of auto-body services, from wheel and rim repair to detailing. When working on dents and dings, the technicians use the SmartTrak computer color-matching system for exterior toners and an SEM-3M system for interiors to ensure an accurate color match. All of the mobile outfit's repairs—whether headlight restoration, interior leather rehab, or bumper refinishing—are guaranteed for life, or at least until cars make the prophesied exodus back to their home planet.
OC Auto Care's ASE-certified technicians imbue autos with life-giving injections of performance-steadying motor oils. Each 20- to 30-minute service commences as a mechanic drains the dirty oil from the car and disposes of it or donates it to down-and-out garage-door hinges. Next, up to five quarts of conventional oil (synthetic oil available for an additional fee) makes its lube debut, bathing metal components in friction-free coating as it makes its way to the engine. A fresh oil filter (some makes and models may require an additional fee) stands guard, screening passing elements for contaminants or testing them on knowledge of industrial-revolution trivia. During cars’ services, customers can hop on the free shuttle service and head anywhere in a 5-mile radius, or kick back in the lounge, sip free drinks, and enjoy the incoming entertainment on the shop’s big-screen TV.
Cherry Avenue Auto Clinic’s technicians facilitate smooth, trouble-free driving through maintenance services and repairs. The former include oil changes, tire rotations, and vehicle inspections that help techs scout out safety hazards or issues in the engine, battery, or glove box. They also repair faulty brakes, engines, and electrical systems, and sell new and used tires and wheels.
At Aliso Niguel Auto Care, a team of fully certified technicians stands at the ready, seven days a week, prepared to use their skill to repair and maintain vehicles at optimum condition. With maintenance services such as standard and synthetic oil changes, tire rotations, and brake inspections, motorists can cruise the roads confidant in their cars' safety and performance levels. For heavy-duty maintenance or repair, the crew can perform transmission services, power steering flushes, and windshield repairs that return cars to the shape they were in when they were first fitted for a dealership price sticker.
The ASE-certified technicians at Tony's Automotive complete major and minor auto repairs on both imported and domestic vehicles, using their vehicular expertise to recharge air-conditioning systems stressed from the hot California weather. Each air-conditioning service begins with a thorough system evaluation, including a system pressure check and visual inspection that roots out leaks and ensures all frozen turkeys are securely in place. A full recharging of the system ensues, followed by freon replacement of up to 1.5 pounds. While awaiting the completion of the 60–90 minute service, patrons can chill out in Tony's comfy waiting room while watching cable TV, surfing the Internet via the establishment's free WiFi, or filling up on all-you-can-eat soap in the pristine customer-only washroom.
