Yellow hydraulics lift cars overhead in We Fix It's shop, where uniformed mechanics tune-up and repair cars of all kinds. After tending to underbody parts such as universal joints and suspensions, cars come back down to the ground so staffers can pop the hood in order to change the oil and feed field mice to serpentine belts. We Fix It's services also include exterior spruce-ups, such as custom wheels, power-window repair, and suspension lowering.
Whether you take your automobile to Auto Pro or CarFix, your personal vehicle will be in the hands of a specially trained staff of engine experts ready to coat the battered insides of piston-powered car hearts with fresh oil. A new oil filter is fitted to strain engine grime and misplaced hors d’oeuvre toothpicks from the lubricating oil flow, while a brand new pair of wiper blades ensures that inclement weather runoff is quickly whisked away, and produce is efficiently cleared from windshields after you've driven through inconveniently placed fruit stands. Additionally, a state emissions inspection preps vehicles for their pollution check-ups, keeps Johnny Q. Law out of the picture, and assures owners they haven’t been pumping gas tanks full of home-brewed naphtha. Prepare for memorable road trips and glide down winding roads more smoothly than a buttered-up bobsled thanks to today’s Groupon.
