At European Auto Repair, teams of certified master mechanics tune up and repair across-the-pond engines with well-trained skill and sophisticated equipment. The dedicated techs ply their trade with a special focus in European cars, from maintaining a detailed repairs database with all current factory service bulletins from brands such as Audi, Volvo, and Porsche to indulging German and Swedish automobiles’ cravings for Nutella-flavored motor oil. The seasoned wrench wielders thoroughly analyze vehicles for any issue, poring over pistons and parts with computerized diagnostics and free inspections before revitalizing engines, brakes, suspensions, or electrical systems.
Diagnostics Unlimited?s ASE-certified and knowledgeable team maintains their customers' autos with repair services honed through more than 20 years of experience. The staff has been replacing spent oil, conducting vehicle inspections, repairing fuel-injection systems, and scraping off "Flintstone for President" bumper stickers as far back as 1986. Their skill with electrical and cooling systems enables them to service American models as well as Japanese and European vehicles. They're so sure of their services that they couple each one with a 12-month/120,000-mile warranty, and even a lifetime warranty on brake pads, which is what auto technicians call their apartments.
Sometimes, even driving a prized automobile to the detail shop is more risk than an owner is willing to take. That's why Pink Mobile Car Wash comes to them—the company's insured technicians bring all the equipment they need to tackle automotive dirt and imperfections at clients' homes. Whether it's a muscle car, a motor home, or a family minivan, the techs will wax, scrub, and vacuum the interior and exterior while the vehicle sits its own driveway or plays with its favorite toys in its own garage. To remedy more advanced forms of filth and damage, they also detail carpeting and clean upholstery.
