Heritage Honda revamps cruisers with comprehensive auto services performed by vehicular specialists. Under the oil-coated stethoscopes of Honda-certified technicians, horseless carriages are carefully inspected to make sure fluids are high, parts aren't worn out, and engine cylinders haven’t morphed into cubes. An oil-and-filter change pairs well with a front-end alignment ($100) or a tire rotation and new cabin air filter ($100). Replace batteries ($100) or front brake pads worn down from too many trips around Dead Man’s Curves, the draining men-only fitness club ($100). A convenient online scheduling form affords appointments for speedy express service or more intensive maintenance work.
To the auto-maintenance professionals at Carney Tire and Car Care Center, the only thing more important than nurturing their relationship with the environment is nurturing their relationships with their clients. Inside their shop—which is heated by 100% recycled oil—they spruce up downtrodden rides with repairs and inspections of belts and hoses, as well as basic services such as oil changes and battery replacement. They break out advanced equipment to perform complex transmission maintenance and computerized engine analysis. Their tire shop stocks quality rubber from brands such as Goodyear, Yokohama, Bridgestone, and Michelin, which keeps tires hugging the road like a bear cub hugs its favorite teddy human. Putting client comfort in the forefront, Carney Tire and Car Care Center has appointed their waiting area with plush leather couches and a large flat-screen TV.
The Audio Connection's award-winning team of technicians customizes mobile investments with a complete range of audio equipment, security systems, and electronics upgrades.

Alternatively, smartphones and MP3 players can be integrated into dashboards, allowing for easy charging and music access. The hands-free Bluetooth kit's voice dialing and redial features keep commutes safe and respect state laws that prohibit drivers from talking on handsets or steering with their knees.
For more than 35 years, Precision Tune Auto Care has helped vehicles of all sorts to run smoothly with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services. Professionally trained mechanics whet engine appetites with a premium oil change (up to 5 qts.), top off fluids, and rotate tires to allow for even distribution of wear and tear. A windshield-wiper replacement for two 16- to 24-inch blades ensures a close shave so autos look their springtime best, and battery and charging-system checks safeguard against ignition failure during dramatic drive-thru getaways. Ride renovations end with a brake inspection to assure working parts post-drive-away.
The check-engine lights don’t stay lit long at SAP Automotive Center, and that’s because the staff of ASE-certified technicians specializes in diagnostics. But as a full-service repair and collision shop, they also dedicate their time to an array of other services. Their shop—which welcomes all domestic and foreign vehicles—is littered with stacks of certified used tires, and houses a tow truck that is available 24 hours a day ever since it switched from gasoline to espresso.
For more than 14 years, M & G Customs has outfitted rides with spiffy doodads and necessary upgrades.

A full line of name-brand tires is also available, and no matter the service, M & G's technicians vow to finish in a timely fashion, ensuring cars can return to cruising or chasing parked dogs as quickly as possible.
