Foreign and domestic auto repair, we offer the kind of training, experience and part selection which set our auto services apart.

From a single shop in Sturgis, Michigan, Auto-Lab has grown into a full-service franchise that cares for cars' every nook and cranny. Each location's ASE-certified technicians keep autos flourishing with regular maintenance check-ups, helping identify and stave off problems before they metastacize. These experts peer into the dark abyss under the hood, employing high-tech diagnostic tools to identify and repair computerized engine issues, and keep tabs on brakes before they seize up and stop you just as you're about to break the sound barrier. In addition, they guarantee all services for 12 months or up to 12,000 miles.
With lube and service centers spread across America, Valvoline Instant Oil Change ensures that roads from coast to coast teem with automotive vigor. Certified technicians perform a roster of services, including drive-thru oil changes that allow motorists to arrive without an appointment and remain in their car while Valvoline oils forge a truce between metal parts.
With more than 150 years of combined experience, the ASE-certified technicians at Community Automotive Repair have earned the shop a nod for Best Auto Repair in Grand Rapids magazine's 2011 readers' poll. Up to 5 quarts of conventional oil (synthetic available for additional fee) replace dirty predecessors during the oil change, after which techs reposition tires in order to equalize tread wear and remove fitness-crazed hamsters from wheel wells. During the maintenance inspection, specialists scout out potential problems in the car's systems and components and confirm the vehicle’s safety and performance. An attentive hand wash punctuates the service with soap and water massaged against the shell, letting cars cruise out feeling renewed, invigorated, and as clean as a hitchhiker's driving record. Customers are asked to schedule an appointment in advance, and during the service, free shuttles will trek drivers anywhere within a 10-mile radius of the shop.
Auto Centric, a AAA-approved and Bosch-authorized shop, staffs ASE-certified technicians who keep automobiles starting and stopping smoothly, no matter their make or model. During the oil and filter change, mechanics will extract the old oil and filter and fill vehicles' innards with up to 5 quarts of standard automobile blood, then inspect fluid levels and lube the steering, chassis, and door hinges. The car experts also examine the brakes—ensuring metal human transporters can stop on a dime to avoid hitting an innocent quarter—and rotate the tires if necessary. With a new set of wiper blades, patrons can enjoy greater visibility while driving through rain, snow, sleet, hail, or post offices. The entire service takes about two hours; drivers who'd like to stick around can lounge in the waiting area or frolic with the free WiFi.
