The repair process uses acrylic resin to form a solid bond that stops chips from becoming cracks while keeping out water and the voices of angry lifeguards. In the bustling shops, the technicians can also swap out damaged glass for safe, new pieces on both personal and commercial vehicles, often within one hour of the customer's arrival.

The shop's free email-reminder service sends electronic notifications to let drivers know when their vehicle is due for fresh motor oil, a milestone inspection, or vaccinations for its fuzzy dice.
When Car Tunes was founded 37 years ago, the bulk of its customers were looking for car stereos that would play "Stairway to Heaven" louder and clearer. Since then, both music and the way we listen to it have changed, but owner Mark Constantakis has kept apace with the advances, which is apparent in the many awards the company has won over the years. These days, it's all about digital sound and video, or iPod integrations and Bluetooth?a long way from cassettes or keeping a pillow for the folk singer in your backseat. Car Tunes carries a wide inventory of such gadgetry, and its staff of MECP-certified technicians is on hand for custom installations. Here you'll find stereos, speakers, and subwoofers from brands such as Alpine, Pioneer, and Arc Audio. And in addition to sound systems, they have installed more than 50,000 remote starters. They also sell and install GPS navigation systems and window tints.
