Named Top Shop in the Country by Motor Age magazine, Rad Air Complete Car Care has been servicing roadsters in the Cleveland area for more than a quarter of a century. Beginning as a radiator and air-conditioning repair shop in Parma Heights, the locally owned auto franchise has expanded to 10 Northeast Ohio locations that perform such services as brake work, tune-ups, electrical repairs, tire and suspension maintenance, and fluid adjustments. Rad Air is a AAA-approved auto-repair center that offers a lifetime warranty on its work and advises clients on what repairs are needed, recommended, and on each car's birthday wish list.
Lube Stop has been lauded by both local and national press outlets for its Sustainability Program, which decreases the environmental impact of the shop's auto services. Its signature EcoGuard oil change, for example, refreshes engines with re-refined motor oil. Lube Stop also recycles oil and antifreeze, and it plants two new oil-filter trees for every one it chops down.
Besides eight kinds of oil changes, Lube Stop provides multipoint inspections, tire rotations, battery replacement, and other maintenance and repair services. More than 240 employees—who receive continuous training to keep up with eco-friendly practices—helm the company's 37 Cleveland- and Akron-area locations, all of which offer E-Check emissions-testing stations.

The entire process of these services takes about 30 minutes.
