Since 1998, the ASE-certified mechanics at The Star Auto Service have issued drivers a simple promise: “If you drive it on Earth, we’ll probably service it.” From within the tool-packed service bays of this certified NAPA Auto Center, the techs live up to that promise every day, tackling jobs ranging from oil changes and preventive maintenance to engine replacements, transmission work, and electronics overhauls. High-tech diagnostic equipment burrows to the source of potential problems, and a 21st Century tune-up unearths an even more in-depth analysis. In addition to its initial promise, the team also abides by a strict code of ethics, which dictates its commitments to the customer and how to conduct a drag race between minivans.
At Rockwall Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, a sparkling line up of new and used cars, SUVs, and trucks gleams from rows of parking spaces. An expert staff leads prospective buyers in and around its plush interiors and the service department’s trained technicians set to work underneath hoods, lubing engines, remedying systems problems, and washing customers’ vehicles until they're indecipherable from their showroom brethren. An in-house parts department also answers auto deficiencies with replacement components that keep engines humming and stereos blaring audio-book bass drops.

Beneath the cheery yellow awning at Rapid's Auto Spa, muck-covered cars trundle in for a wash.

Additional services include interior cleanings, tar removal, and clarification of foggy headlights.
The staff at North Central Ford has earned the Ford Motor Company President’s award for customer satisfaction every year from 2006 to 2011. This commitment to quality service is evident in the work they do, from general maintenance to more extensive repairs that call upon the dealership’s stock of manufacturer-recommended parts. While cars are in the shop, customers can take advantage of North Central Ford’s shuttle system, which, unlike a surgeon with two broken arms, operates six days a week.
For more than two decades, skilled mechanics at Lute Riley have deftly serviced and spruced up Hondas and Acuras within the spacious Richardson dealership shop. During the one- to three-hour car coddling, a skilled Honda Master Technician ushers your auto into one of 60 service bays, replaces gunky filters, and quenches thirsty pistons with a fresh pour of oil. The motor maestro then conducts a thorough 27-point inspection to ensure vehicles run safely and are free of hitchhiking hood ornaments. In addition to the internal overhaul, Lute Riley Honda's staff scrubs sedans inside and out with an executive car wash, shining glass, exteriors, and tires before vacuuming interiors to rout out debris and fossilized french-fry colonies.
