Spitzer Autoworld has been providing exemplary auto service for more than 100 years, having gotten its start selling and leasing Ford Model Ts. With today’s deal, soiled street wagons can ungrunge their outsides for the foreseeable future with a quintet of washes ($12 value each), during which their exteriors will be lovingly cleansed of accumulated grime and restored to factory-fresh spotlessness. Dirt-averse drivers can also opt for just one exterior clean but supplement it with the added perk of a standard oil change ($35 value) to re-lubricate crusty engines and inhibit corrosion, plus a 27-point auto inspection ($45 value) to ensure the car still has at least 27 parts.
At Finn Tire & Automotive, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicles of all makes and models. Using computer technology, the crew balances tires and scans for looming problems, such as transmission troubles or missing engines. They swap out old oil for new, replace valve sterns, and outfit rides with tires from Michelin, Bridgestone, and BF Goodrich.
For 25 years, Lewis Electronics has been outfitting autos in leather interiors, chrome trim, window tints, and spoilers. Audio systems by JVC and Alpine, mobile video systems by Jensen, and car alarms by AudioVox are just a few of the name brand products that may be purchase and installed at the automotive super store. Remote car starters help drivers thaw out interiors during cold winters, while sunroofs help drivers soak up summer sun. The auto experts also use computer cutting to precisely fit window tints to cars of any year, model, and dress size, and can install satellite radio or navigation systems to help drivers reach their destinations without getting lost or bored.
The ASE-certified mechanics at Auto Repair Technology, Royal Car Care, and Automotive Specialty Services—with at least one Master technician on-site at all times—work to keep cars in peak physical condition. A few quarts of fresh engine oil ensures pistons continue pumping in lubricated harmony, relieved of the dirty sludge that was threatening to create internal friction and attracting mechanical-engineering students. After garnishing the oil change with a new filter, the mechanics lube up the chassis and rotate the tires to maintain even tread wear, then comb through the car point by point and inspect brakes, airbags, and ejector seats to ensure each part lives up to rigorous safety standards. Loaner cars are available for customers who feel the urge to drive while their vehicles are being serviced.
In addition to computerized alignment equipment and gallons of durable, semi-synthetic oil, Auto & Tire Service Specialists stock quality tires from 16 brands, including Goodyear, Michelin, and Yokohama. They back up all repairs and maintenance with a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty.
Since 1919, three generations of Ziegler family members and friends have overseen the vehicles that have made their way into Ziegler Tire. The 24-location auto shop, which began as a modest operation by brothers Oliver and Harold Ziegler, now enlists computerized diagnostic systems and ASE–certified technicians to scout and fix automotive maladies. The skilled technicians outfit personal and commercial vehicles of all types and sizes with new wheels and tires from brands such as Michelin, Dayton, Firestone, and Uniroyal and perform a vast repertoire of routine-maintenance services to extend the lives of automobiles and to stave off a resurgence of penny-farthing popularity.
