OC Auto Care's ASE-certified technicians imbue autos with life-giving injections of performance-steadying motor oils. Each 20- to 30-minute service commences as a mechanic drains the dirty oil from the car and disposes of it or donates it to down-and-out garage-door hinges. Next, up to five quarts of conventional oil (synthetic oil available for an additional fee) makes its lube debut, bathing metal components in friction-free coating as it makes its way to the engine. A fresh oil filter (some makes and models may require an additional fee) stands guard, screening passing elements for contaminants or testing them on knowledge of industrial-revolution trivia. During cars’ services, customers can hop on the free shuttle service and head anywhere in a 5-mile radius, or kick back in the lounge, sip free drinks, and enjoy the incoming entertainment on the shop’s big-screen TV.
Aliso Viejo Auto Center's ASE-certified technicians facilitate smooth and trouble-free driving in all makes and models—including Prius hybrids—with a range of maintenance and repairs. Led by a 20-year veteran technician, deft mechanics install quality parts, perform electronic repairs, send email upkeep reminders to car owners, and administer certified smog tests to make sure cars aren't emitting excess pollution or grandiose promises of everlasting motion. The dependable technicians back every repair with a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty and offer a free 30-point inspection with every service. Customers who live or work in a 5-mile radius of the shop can hitch a ride on the shop's free shuttle while their car is being serviced.
When cars leave Dr. Smog N Lube, they roll out with an engine full of new, clean oil and a clean bill of health from the state. Technicians bolster cars with regular- and synthetic-oil changes, tire rotations, and safety inspections that check 18 separate points. During state-emission inspections, the staff tests each car to make sure its smog output is below the legal limit and awards passing vehicles with a state-certified approval before sending them on their way to brag about it at the nearest gas pump.
Parking a car outside leaves it vulnerable to wind, rain, and—in some cases—roofing tar. Fortunately, 26th Street Auto Center’s team of highly trained mechanics—who are also certificated in auto-paint reconditioning services––is able to restore these kinds of defiled vehicles, as shown on their Facebook page. The staff also applies their knowledge of automotive repair and maintenance––from tire replacement and oil changes to interior detailing and air-conditioning repairs––to any type of foreign or domestic car. In addition, they exude even more confidence when tending to hybrids and rare luxury vehicles, such as Teslas and Fiskers, much like a rocket scientist building a papier-mâché volcano.
