With America's Best Car Care Plan, ASE-certified technicians keep autos running smoothly by injecting car insides with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional oil (upgrades to synthetic require additional charges) and performing a host of auto-maintenance services. Brake inspections and adjustments grant drivers the peace of mind that cars are safe and equipped for inclement weather and duck-crossing signs that come out of nowhere. Two tire rotations ensure automotive equilibrium can find long-lasting balance and tire grooves wear evenly.
From more than 35 years with 350 facilities in six countries, Precision Tune Auto Care has spent the last three decades keeping more than 2.5 million vehicles on the road with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services. Professionally trained mechanics lube engines with signature precision oil changes, rotate tires to ensure even tread wear, repair busted brakes, and test spark plugs to safeguard against ignition failure during dramatic drive-thru getaways. Whether performing complicated services on fuel-injection and cooling systems or simply aligning tires, the mechanics back all their services with a 12-month, 12,000-mile national warranty.
Autologic Quality Auto Repair's work philosophy is transparency. In an effort to build trust with their clientele, they welcome clients to stop by the shop without warning and see how they operate on other cars, and it's this same devotion to open communication that garnered them AAA's Top Shop award for Washington state. Their talented mechanics perform a wide variety of services on virtually every part of the car. The mechanics have seen it all on almost every make and model, whether it's routine maintenance and oil changes or in-depth repairs on the dozens of hamster wheels on the drive train.
A full-service repair shop, Stingray's team of technicians executes everything from oil changes and alignments to engine repairs and electrical diagnosis. Each member of the team has at least 10 years experience, and most repair work comes certified with a 24,000-mile or 24-month nationwide warranty. Their certified services include major and minor repairs on most makes and models of both foreign and domestic cars, such as Chevy, Toyota, and Lexus. As they don't work on commission, they also strive to offer honest opinions on necessary repairs and the latest Dilbert comic.
Express Tune technicians extend automotive longevity, drawing on ACE certification to tweak performance and bolster vehicular safety. The mechanics keep motor oil on hand to keep engines from accumulating damaging buildup and lift hoods to service engines and belts. In the bustling shop, a clattering chorus of tools drifts from beneath undercarriages as techs improve brake function and inspect tires. As state-certified emissions specialists, the mechanics test automotive output to make sure no car is polluting the airways with above-legal levels of toxins, and they inspect used cars for potential malfunctions or Kick Me signs taped to the bumper.
Mark Wagner has been working under the hood of international automobiles since 1972. After securing a master's degree in mechanical engineering in Germany, Wagner ferried both his family and his familiarity with foreign cars to America, where, today, he teams up with the ASE-certified techs in his repair shop. The factory-trained mechanics dole out everything from tune-ups to engine, brake, and transmission repairs. And all of their work is backed by a 15-month, 15,000-mile warranty that prevents cars from worrying about waking up and seeing their name in the classified pages.
