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.
Culver Automotive's ASE-certified technicians freshen engines with new oil while hunting for signs of excessive wear, making sure cars are healthy before they head back out to wander the asphalt. During each oil change, a new filter and up to 5 quarts of oil bring a fresh perspective to the engine's lubrication system, helping minimize engine wear and keep gas mileage at a maximum. While under the hood, auto whisperers inspect air cleaners, hoses, and belts, reporting any damage or stowaway junkyard parts to the owner. Though repairs are not included in today's Groupon, first-time customers will receive a 10% discount on labor.
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.
Westlake Village Car Wash's auto experts pay careful attention to detail while wielding high-quality cleansing products during thorough car washes. Staffers handle four-wheeled friends with a tender touch, gently hand washing surfaces before concluding with a by-hand towel dry and open-handed high five.
Knollwood Tire Center's friendly mechanics have to holster a vast set of skills in their metaphorical tool belts. That's because they're expected to do it all, from routine oil changes and tire rotation to diagnosing electrical problems and repairing diesel engines. Installing and repairing tires is their calling card. With a deep stock of major brands on hand—including Michelin, Goodyear, and Yokohama—techs can meet the varied needs of both discerning customers and children demanding a specific brand of tire swing.
