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.
The auto technicians at Tuffy Auto Service have helped keep cars and trucks running smoothly and passengers safe since the shop opened its doors in 1970. Though the team specializes in brakes, they take on repair and maintenance services pertaining to every part of a car's anatomy, from routine oil changes and tune-ups to major engine repairs and even replacement. The shop welcomes vehicles by nearly 40 manufacturers into its healing embrace, including Chevrolets from Detroit, BMWs from Munich, and Land Rovers from the uncharted highlands. It also invites owners to make use of the convenient Tire Selector and Quick Quote systems found on its website.
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, wiper blade 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 principle behind Rain-X is simple: it causes water to bead and roll off the glass, therefore improving the driver’s visibility during inclement weather. This humble concept has made the product one of the most called-upon tools in the auto industry, including at A-1 Auto’s & Detail. During their exterior detail, A-1’s technicians apply a quick spritz of Rain-X to all windows, allowing car owners to cruise through thunderstorms or have a good cry on the roof of their car, worry free. Aside from Rain-X, the team also treats exteriors to products by Black Magic, including their wheel shine, and sweeps through interiors with vacuums and ultra-violet cream protectant for the dash.
