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.
Lube Stop has been lauded by both local and national press outlets for its Sustainability Program, which decreases the environmental impact of the shop's auto services. Its signature EcoGuard oil change, for example, refreshes engines with re-refined motor oil. Lube Stop also recycles oil and antifreeze, and it plants two new oil-filter trees for every one it chops down.
Besides eight kinds of oil changes, Lube Stop provides multipoint inspections, tire rotations, wiper blade replacement, and other maintenance and repair services. More than 240 employees—who receive continuous training to keep up with eco-friendly practices—helm the company's 37 Cleveland- and Akron-area locations, all of which offer E-Check emissions-testing stations.
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.
In the shadow of a billowing American flag, Jeff's Motorcars of Wadsworth’s 10,000-square-foot facility peeks out from under cobalt-blue awnings, beckoning vehicles into one of its seven mechanical bays. Here, ASE-certified master technicians wield an arsenal of Pennzoil products during guarantee-backed maintenance services that range from transmission work to electrical-system troubleshooting. A body-restoring detail center keeps cars feeling brand new and free WiFi keeps customers busy in the waiting area. The full-service shop’s sprawling showroom also sells used, pre-inspected vehicles, which brandish Auto Check Reports and up-to-date tetanus shots for cars.
Thanks to their dealings with a fleet of used cars, the mechanics at Ireland Motorcars are well versed in what it takes to keep road-worn vehicles running and attractive. In the full-service maintenance shop, they thoroughly inspect key parts and change out briny oil for clean lubricants. Detailing services return cars to showroom cleanliness, allowing their owners to stuff them back in the box and return them to the car store as though they were never opened.
