ASE-certified Precision Tune Auto Care helps vehicles of all sorts run smoothly by performing top-of-the-line maintenance and repair services. The vehicular spa day begins with a full-service oil change, where a team of talented techs pours up to 5 quarts of 5W-20 or 5W-30 oil into thirsty autos while decking out happily oil-drunk engines with brand-new filters. Tires bask in equally tender treatment during a rotation, which promotes even wear and tear and gives easily bored circular sightseers a new vantage point. Upon completion, an alignment check finds out if anything is needed to keep cars rolling in a straight line. Precision Tune Auto Care's professional vehicle pamperers also stabilize tires' rubbery moods by treating them to lifetime balancing until they bounce off to the big wheelhouse in the sky. A visual brake inspection assesses the stoppers' surfaces for resistance capabilities, unusual noises, or grinding tendencies.
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.
Since 1942, Leete Tire & Auto Center, Inc. has been fitting autos with new tires by brands including Michelin, BFGoodrich, Uniroyal, Continental, Toyo, and Goodyear. Though the family-owned tire shop's been around for well over half a century, it stays up-to-date by equipping its 10-bay garage with modern technologies, such as the Space Needle, which sews up cars or the moon after meteor collisions. In 1995, Leete Tire & Auto Center spawned another location in Richmond that features six bays capable of servicing passenger vehicles as well as light trucks. As NAPA AutoCare centers, both tire shops also enlist ASE-certified technicians trained to keep rides healthy. These skilled pros render maintenance services including state inspections, computerized alignments, and brake inspections.
Four full-time certified mechanics tend to domestic and foreign vehicles at All Tune and Lube, a full-service auto maintenance and repair center. These mechanics can investigate engine troubles with computer diagnostics, ward off road trip delays with preventative maintenance, or repair air-conditioning units that have transformed speedy coupes into imperceptibly slow-moving icebergs. All of the mechanics’ handiwork comes backed by a warranty valid for 12,000 miles or 12 months.
Oil changes and tune-ups performed by staff at CLAS, Inc. have fostered trouble-free driving for more than 20 years, garnering the shop an ASE Blue Seal of Excellence. During the oil change, mechanics drain mischievous fluids, replace them with up to 5 quarts of semi-synthetic oil, and listen to the tires reminisce about their childhood as a rubber tree. The two-hour car-care package continues the pampering as technicians reposition tires for equalized tread wear and stabilize the auto's swagger with a four-wheel alignment. Techs then check the tires and suspension to ensure a ride smoother than Barry White’s meticulously maintained driveway.
Virginia Automotive Services’ ASE- and NAPA-certified technicians have been keeping gear shifts in drive for more than 30 years with a full range of vehicle-pampering services. A one-year membership to the Car Care Club helps drivers attend to autos’ needs with a card redeemable for an array of maintenance services, along with heavy discounts on additional services. Motorists can stop attempting to navigate roads from behind a Jackson Pollock painting with a set of new, windshield-clearing wiper blades and keep neat-freak engines happy with four free changes, each complete with a fresh filter. Two energy-redirecting tire rotations and balances work on vehicular feng shui, and a Virginia State safety check and a 68-point inspection get four-wheelers up to code. Members also get coupons for $50 off a mileage check, $50 off timing belt replacement, $50 off towing, $10 off an air filter, and $20 off a transmission flush and fill.
