In 1907, Guy Garber was introduced to the founder of General Motors. Though cars were still a novelty in much of the country then, Guy soon found himself managing one of the nation's first Buick dealerships. Through the Great Depression and the two world wars, Guy remained in the exhilarating automotive industry, with his family taking over in the 60s and still helming the business today. Today they apply more than a century of accumulated skill with old-fashioned service standards while presiding over the latest Chevrolet models as well as an inventory of preowned vehicles. The car has progressed greatly from the days of wooden wheels and bumper stickers about honor students’ dueling prowess, and Garber's techs have kept with the times. They offer a slew of maintenance and repair services, from oil changes to engine replacements, that extend each vehicle's longevity and help propel the automobile into a smooth-driving future.
Randy Wise's team of expert mechanics fends off vehicular woes by executing dealership-quality maintenance and repair services. During each oil change, fresh, spongy filters whet engines' appetites for up to 5 quarts of oil. The service can increase gasket function, soothe shafts, and strengthen auto immune systems against tailgating-transmitted diseases. Technicians prevent wobbly-wheel syndrome by performing a tire rotation, and a multipoint inspection checks cars for any latent damage or wear. The service typically takes a total of about 30 minutes, after which owners can zip away confident in the knowledge that a mechanic has confirmed their brakes exist.
Graff Chevrolet kicks out the dirt passengers from cars, trucks, and SUVs of any make and model. Each vehicle’s five- to six-hour renaissance detail begins with an engine-bay bathing to blast away built-up grime. Vehicle exteriors are thoroughly washed and waxed before the doors are opened to treat interiors to a thorough vacuuming, followed by hot-water extraction on carpets and seats. Full transparency is returned to slurpee-splattered windows, and wheels and tires are scrubbed and shined until even chrome accessories genuflect in genuine admiration. Doorjambs are relieved from obstinate mudcakes, and stowaway dust bunnies are removed from the trunk until car and driver are at last joyously reunited.
LaFontaine Automotive Group adheres to a "Family Deal" credo, striving to cosset car-buyers with solid information and service as they saddle up one of nearly a thousand new and pre-owned GM–brand steeds. A 2011 Buick Regal CXL RL2 sedan delicately sips its fuel at 30 miles per gallon on the highway while sporting a sleek four-door frame suggestive of madcap high-octane fuel funneling ($28,241 MSRP). The 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE truck packs a flex-fuel V-8 engine that grants it the load-carrying, tow-hauling capacity expected of a pickup with the corn-derived, ethanol-based fuel capability of a flock of noble crows ($36,356 MSRP).
The automotive wunderkinds at Tuffy of Waterford use sturdy replacement parts, doses of lubricating oil, and comprehensive inspections to ensure that vehicles remain safe and ready for the road. The car coddling begins with a full-service oil change, which replaces used oil with up to five quarts of fresh, standard oil, so that engines can run smoother than an Olympic sprinter on roller skates. A tire rotation helps to alleviate the stresses of the road by preventing uneven wear and guarding tires against future rotational difficulties. A thorough safety inspection identifies potential problem areas and saves money, time, and families of muffler-dwelling elves. Tuffy checks brakes and exhaust free of charge, and although waiting time varies, drivers can expect service to take up to two hours.
