The technicians at Automotive Solutions repair and maintain vehicles inside and out with everything from paint jobs to oil changes. After performing 21-point diagnostic inspections, the staff tends to vehicles' needs, whether that entails replacing brake pads, topping off fluids, or rotating tires.
During the 4- to 6-hour service, licensed technicians run through a detailed checklist to make sure cars are in good physical condition. More than three dozen items are on the list, including:Among the remaining items are belts, air filters, fuel lines, door locks and hinges, wipers, oxygen-sensor gauges, and lights. To finish things up, the technicians top off all fluids and put the car through a complete road test to see if it knows which speed-limit signs are optional.
No hood ornament has ever been turned away in Ultimate Automobiles' 40-year history. That's because the staff welcomes all vehicle makes and models into their full-service shop, which hosts an array of used vehicles, licensed Drive Clean emissions inspections, and a body shop stocked with parts. The mechanics specialize in matching cars to new tires and lend out courtesy cars for lengthier repairs or impromptu demolition derby tryouts. They also tidy up vehicles during tiered details that showcase a repertoire of cleansing techniques, including hand washes, hand waxes, and interior shampoo treatments.
