Committed to keeping cars clean without dirtying the planet, Harv's Car Wash delivers eco-friendly cleanses that earned the company the commendation of the Bay Area Green Business Program and Sacramento Area Sustainable Businesses. Reclaimed water undergoes multiple stages of cleaning and proper disposal to meet the standard of water and energy audits while ensuring efficient operations and thwarting Poseidon's embezzlement schemes. Similarly, the vintage sea-foam-and-orange-accented car wash’s twirling blue brushes and turbo jet dryers are designed to circumvent the finish-damaging effects of home hand washing. Additional products and services such as Blue Coral waxes, Rain-X treatments, and clay-bar treatments keep car exteriors shimmering, and a fully stocked mobile-accessories shop caps off cleanses.
The two ASE-certified mechanics at MPG Auto Service have gone to great lengths to turn their garage into a viable alternative to pricy dealership repair shops. The owner has achieved the title of Toyota certified master technician and has slain the diesel-powered dragon needed to earn his certificate as a Toyota hybrid-system-qualified mechanic. The team also knows its way around the engines of Fords, Porsches, Volkswagens, and more than 25 other foreign and domestic makes. They put their knowledge to work performing California smog and emissions testing, exhaust-system and electrical repairs, and routine engine maintenance. The shop maintains a user-friendly vibe, encouraging potential patrons to drop in with questions about their limping or coughing automobiles.
