The certified technicians at Victory Auto Service & Glass dish out oil changes and winter auto checkups with award-winning ethics and a reputation for excellent hospitality. As customers watch from cozy waiting areas, car bellies are drained of old oil and stale Mellow Yellow seeping through dashboard heating vents. Then, 5 quarts of standard motor oil quenches parched engines (synthetic oil is available at an extra cost). Meanwhile, the hazards of winter roads get minimized with the 50-point Peace of Mind inspection. In about 20 minutes, important vehicle vitals are checked, including exhaust systems, tire pressure, and dashboard lights. Inspections comb most major automotive functions—including break lines, shocks, and all fluids—determining each element as passing, in need of future attention, in need of immediate attention, or in need of a hug. Victory Auto Service & Glass covers all of its new parts and labor with a two-year, 24,000-mile warranty.
