Led by John Mupagano, the shop's team of talented technicians specialize in all things Volvo, peering into the combustion-caked souls of vehicles with modern diagnostics equipment. The techs keep cars running with a host of preventative care, such as NYS inspections and repairs to transmission, cooling system, and air-conditioning systems. The shop also partners with Alan Beyers collision center to help straighten structural damage from your latest run-in with an overly affectionate fire hydrant.
Berco Automotive repairs and maintains autos with expert technicianry, while friendly service caters to their proud parents. Mechanics are well trained to identify needed repairs while avoiding unnecessary procedures such as replacing the horn with a crowded backseat horn section. Those not already facing internal dilemmas can prevent future problems with maintenance services such as a cleansing coolant flush ($74.95) or brake service ($149.95 and up). A standard lube and oil-filter service ($28.95) prevents attention-seeking engines from leaking all over the driveway or chewing on your shoes. Berco's full range of services also includes state inspections, tune-ups, and computer diagnostics.
Ford & Bryant Car Care is a family-owned business that has been providing quality car care, from routine oil changes to major repairs, to the Liverpool and Syracuse areas since 1961. Let the friendly staff of Automotive Service Excellence–certified mechanics drain the old engine oil out of your car, placing it in a decorative container to display on your mantle or in the refrigerator next to the maple syrup. A fresh pour of clean and vivacious new oil will ensure your buggy runs smoothly for the next 3,000 miles. The tire rotation will give all four of your road-rollers new spots to reside, similar to a game of musical chairs where you don’t lose your house at the end. Clients drive off in reinvigorated automobiles with cleaner engines, longer tire lives, and a spring in their ride.
A nearly 65-year-old institution passed from father to son, Pierce Automotive gives domestic and import vehicles life-extending tune-ups and quick repairs. Proprietor Brian Pierce has worked the floors of Pierce Automotive since boyhood, developing car-repairing expertise and the ability to understand the clicking, wheezing language of carburetors. During oil changes, skilled technicians replace the vehicle’s vital lubricant, extending engine life by reducing wear and friction and boosting mileage. A tire service with rotation, balance, and mount ensures even distribution of weight across wheels, improving driving comfort, steering, and safety. A battery recharge, which includes a tune-up, change, terminal cleaning, and insulator installation, jolts somnambulant cars awake faster than a liter of mocha latte poured straight into the gas tank.
Bob Johnson Chevrolet's knowledgeable service team and GM-trained mechanics prep for winter with oil changes, tire rotations, inspections, and new sets of tires. The certified service technicians execute the winterization package by appeasing engines' appetites with up to 6 quarts of standard motor oil, installing a new ACDelco oil filter, and lubricating hinges, suspensions, and drivelines. A tire rotation helps prolong rubbery soles' lifespans by balancing the wear and tear treads experience as cars drive on roads or the sides of pyramids. Techs also fill tires with nitrogen—as opposed to standard compressed air—to help to improve fuel efficiency and maintain constant tire pressure. Along with running through a General Motors–certified service checklist, mechanics administer a thorough inspection of fluids, wiper blades, batteries, brake systems, and flux capacitors.
A team of factory-trained technicians at Cortese Auto Group deploys years of experience and accumulated elbow grease to get engines purring. Before tune-ups, owners partner with a service advisor to communicate concerns and air-freshener scents known to agitate their steel steed. The 45-minute package begins with an oil change that refreshes motor cocktails with up to 6 quarts of standard lubricant and replaces overworked filters. Tire rotations keep rubber burning evenly to prevent blowouts, and a take-home 8-ounce bottle of Castle Fireball fuel injector cleaner blasts away scum with an explosive serum extracted from Bruce Willis's DNA. Dexterous hands then set to work testing brakes, feeling out tire tread and pressure, checking suspension and belts, and finally topping off all fluids as a toast to a completed inspection. Cortese operates a fleet of shuttles to transport visitors to and from work while their ride is in treatment, and waiting areas broadcast wireless Internet for remote access to office games of charades.
