The ASE-licensed vehicle virtuosos at Preferred Auto Care specialize in keeping Hondas, Acuras, Toyotas, Suburus, and Lexuses running smoothly and safely. In an oil change, technicians swap aging motor sludge for freshly squeezed gear juice so that auto innards remain happy and healthy, and a new oil filter steps up to replace its spent precursor. Workers then rotate tires in order to ensure even wear and tear, thus extending their longevity and enhancing performance. Before returning rides to the open road, meticulous mechanics thoroughly inspect horseless carriages' every nook and cranny, deploying their trained eyes to ferret out potential trouble areas and families of raccoons living under the hood.
Congeniality comes second only to cleanliness at Jimmy’s, where the owner is always on site and the employees are enthusiastic about spiffing up their customers’ rides. With Jimmy’s finest wash package, horseless carriages are treated to a five-step scrubbing that leaves them sparkling and confident. After a general sudsing of the exterior and an undercarriage rinse, the cars is treated to an application of triple-coat polish, full-body Rain-X protectant, and a tune-up of its bug-proof force field. The special wheel cleaner amps up tire twinkle, relieving wheels of their burden of road grime. Lest vehicle interiors become jealous of newly laved exteriors, Jimmy’s invites customers to use complimentary vacuums, window cleaner, and towels to put the finishing touches on their vehicular makeovers.
Technicians at R&T Performance—a recipient of the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence—bolster four-wheeled friends with precision vehicle service. During each oil change, technicians drizzle mucked oil from the car, unfasten the contaminated filter, and safely dispose of them before they attempt to win the engine back with a hastily composed love song. Up to 5 quarts of conventional oil slither through the car, slickening metallic components, and a clean filter takes its place next to the motor. Meanwhile, diesel engines guzzle up to 12 quarts of motor oil, forfeiting their predecessors for fresh lubricant and an unscathed filter, before techs reposition tires to spread tread wear and restore equilibrium. Mechanics then administer a nine-point safety inspection, snooping from the cooling system to the tires and seven destinations in between to gauge rubber for proper air pressure, inspect the suspension, and make sure brakes haven't lost confidence from reading the Kelley Blue Book.
