As an ASE- and TIA--certified facility, American Tire & Auto Care keeps its technicians up to date on automotive trends and advanced auto-repair techniques. The full-service tire shop equips cars with tires from reputable brands such as Michelin, BF Goodrich, Pirelli, and Yokohama. Inside the repair shop, highly trained car-care professionals maintain rides with services that range from batteries and AC repair to glass repair, transmission repair, and oil changes that use freshly milked oil from a hormone-free Winnebago. Customers can visit one of six locations, each of which is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Since Angelo Resta first opened his business 67 years ago, Resta's Car Care & Rental has kept customers happy and vehicles shipshape with expert detailing, oil changes, new tires, and repair services. The bustling, five-bay auto shop traces its origins to 1946, when most of the roads around Somerset were paved in dirt, and cars were still propelled by 2-ton steam engines. Today, Angelo's sons, Ed and Frank, run the business, which is now a certified NAPA Auto Care Center where clients drop off their modern four-wheeled friends for certified state inspections, emissions repairs, buffing and waxing services, and axle, air-conditioning, and transmission repairs. Drivers can also refuel their cars, trucks, and SUVs at the full-service Shell gas station, or pick up a convenient rental vehicle from nearby Fred's Auto Rental.
With every tire purchase at Suburban Discount Tire, customers receive complimentary tire services including free repairs, rotations, and wear-and-tear checks. A team of technicians extends the life of rubber feet through a nitrogen-fill program, which helps maintain proper tire inflation to keep cars trundling down highways or careening through drive-in movie screens during pivotal plot points. The techs also performer preventative services to repair faulty belts, leaky AC systems, and oil filters overdue for a change.
Michael Kornfeld has loved many cars in his life, from the red 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme convertible he can still be seen driving from time to time, to the minivan he now calls his daily driver. This dichotomy seems to reflect the philosophy of Salit Auto Repair’s team of technicians, who turn their expertise toward vehicles from sporty to practical. Nestled inside the barn-style office, the garage rattles with the sounds of pneumatic car lifts, smooth-running engines, and the squeak of owners practicing their Dukes of Hazzard hood slide.
At Honest-1 Auto Care, ASE-certified mechanics accomplish everything from oil changes and tune-ups to brake and engine repair.

At Auto Spa of Westfield, technicians dedicate themselves to restoring showroom sheen to vehicles of all makes and models. Seven days a week, they guide cars and trucks through their wash tunnels and onto their service bays to peel away dirt and reenergize engines. During car washes, they lavish exteriors with triple-foam polish wax and protectants. Detailers use hand wax and shampoos to comb through the exterior and interior. Castrol and Mobil 1 oils whirl through funnels and into engines at the quick lube center, where skilled technicians also service transmissions, replace belts, and switch out sage bundles for proper windshield wipers.
