From tune-ups to large-scale repairs, Imprint Automotive’s technicians bring decades of collective experience with them as they slide beneath undercarriages or dip into hoods. For cars that need a quick dose of lube, they’ll funnel in clean motor oil. They’ll rotate tires to keep cars on the straight and narrow, check the engine for mechanical trouble, and repair dangerous brake or fuel systems. And in case drivers need an extra boost of car-owner confidence, the technicians will perform full safety inspections to ensure the vehicle won’t break down or sneak out of the garage and elope with a gas pump.
