Drawing on half a century of automotive service, the family owned and operated Midas Auto Service & Tire helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigor with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to US EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
Almost a century ago, it was 1914 and William J. Cassidy was gazing out from his livery stable to watch the newfangled automobiles rumble past on Roosevelt Road. He knew then that he’d been right to expand from shoeing horses to also servicing tires. Never having children, Will took his 16-year-old nephew, Hugh, under his wing in the venture. When Will retired, Hugh took over and kept the company afloat even during the bleakest days of the Depression and WWII. Hugh’s six sons all followed in the family footsteps, opening additional locations in the suburbs, and then their children opened even more.
Today, those descendants operate 15 Cassidy Tire & Service locations throughout the city and suburbs. The Cassidy experts keep vehicles running smoothly as they grow old by practicing a full range of other auto services, from rotating tires to changing oil and flushing transmissions.
Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corp., Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto accessory and detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations in 30 countries. Performing everything from window tinting and professional detailing to electronics installation, Ziebart's experienced staff cares for cars with high-end products, including seasonal paint protectant and the company’s renowned rust inhibitors. To protect cars inside and out, Ziebart technicians also install accouterments such as alarm systems to thwart thieves and sunroofs to thwart unflattering film negatives from processing correctly (services may vary by location).
The seasoned technicians at Goodfellas Automotive help to ensure that interiors and exteriors remain strong and striking. In addition to installing remote starters and decking out rides with full audio-video systems, technicians solve simple automotive quandaries with oil changes, tune-ups, and brake services backed by lifetime guarantees. They also set to work on exteriors by tinting windows, mounting 22-inch rims, or installing HID headlights—high-intensity beams that are bright enough to navigate dark tunnels or intimidate fourth-grade flashlight-tag champions.
McGrath City Honda's fleet of experienced technicians keeps every kind of automobile driving smoothly and safely with essential maintenance procedures. Your roadster's 45-minute spa-maintenance experience commences with an oil and filter change, adding new fossil fuels to the engine's juice diet. Next, a wagon whisperer performs a multipoint inspection, running eyes thoroughly over items prone to breaking such as belts, fans, and Fabergé eggs. Finally, a car wash purges the outer chassis, imbuing exteriors with the glow of a spray-tanned new penny.
