Almost a century ago, it was 1914 and William J. Cassidy was gazing out from his livery stable to watch the newfangled automobiles rumble past on Roosevelt Road. He knew then that he’d been right to expand from shoeing horses to also servicing tires. Never having children, Will took his 16-year-old nephew, Hugh, under his wing in the venture. When Will retired, Hugh took over and kept the company afloat even during the bleakest days of the Depression and WWII. Hugh’s six sons all followed in the family footsteps, opening additional locations in the suburbs, and then their children opened even more.
Today, those descendants operate 15 Cassidy Tire & Service locations throughout the city and suburbs. The Cassidy experts keep vehicles running smoothly as they grow old by practicing a full range of other auto services, from rotating tires to changing oil and flushing transmissions.
With more than 175 locations nationwide and more than 35 years in the business, Car-X Tire & Auto has earned itself a prime spot in the parking garage of quality car care and customer service. Skilled mechanics prep road wagons for tough winters by replacing busted-up sludge with a fresh batch of up to 5 quarts of multigrade oil. Auto doctors also fix up rides with new windshield wipers (up to 24” in length) and tire rotations that ensure snug stops in case of icy patches or drag races against reindeer. During the battery and charging-system check, technicians carefully examine autos to make sure they'll be ready to start up on command. This service runs about 60 minutes long and wraps up with a full-vehicle courtesy inspection that ensures essential components, including tires, brakes, and suspension systems, are healthy enough to cruise the open road without requiring training wheels or being pulled by a retired racehorse.
The technicians at Mobil 1 Lube Express promote vehicles' longevity by protecting their most important part—the engine. Mechanics maintain rides with regular oil changes to promote cleanliness and reduce friction on moving parts, keeping them in factory condition without use of a time machine. The technicians augment their vehicular refresher course with maintenance ranging from rotating tires to cleaning fuel systems. All of their handiwork is backed by the Mobil 1 brand, though the high-ceilinged blue and white garage pours nine brands of oils in addition to Mobil 1, allowing vehicles to sip the cocktail of their choice.

Since 1945, Fuller's Carwash, Detail & Lube Center has mollycoddled motor vehicles with a slew of auto services.

Soft-cloth car washes and meticulous detailing services bolster a car’s resale value and ensure it stays as pristine as the day it was delivered by a factory-assembled stork.
