Import Auto Center offers a clean space with an educated and straightforward approach to car repair. A synthetic blend oil and oil filter change ($24.50 value for a four-cylinder car; $27.50 value for a six- cylinder car, including tax) gets engines purring and mufflers puffing with the happy fumes of robust vehicular health. A safety and service inspection for four- and six-cylinder autos ($47.38, including tax) ensures the only danger you face in your car is the mind-washing zombie disk-jockeys that rule the AM airwaves. Should an expert serviceman find a worn belt or nearly tapped-out alternator, an impressive inventory of OEM parts (Honda, Acura, Toyota, and Lexus) stands at the ready to facilitate a speedy repair.
Center Collision's owner Kevin House has had his head under the hood for more than 30 years. It all started in his garage as a teenager, when he became fascinated with cars and how they work. Today, he keeps that passion alive at his fully equipped, 8,000-sq. ft. full-service shop, where he and his team of certified technicians perform auto body and collision repair work. They do everything from helming complete paint jobs to replacing bumpers, fenders, and factory-installed fuzzy dice. They also work on dents, scratches, and frame repair, often completing most jobs within a couple days of drop-off. For customers in a bind, they operate tow-trucks and dole out rental vehicles at a reduced rate. To maintain the appearance of prized autos, they also offer exterior and interior detailing services.

The technicians at Foss Car Audio put nearly three decades of expertise to use as they install audio and home theater equipment across multiple locations.

Staffers also outfit rides with alarms, navigation systems, and remote starters, as well as tint car windows to block UV rays and angry glares from jealous horseback riders. Foss Car Audio also travels to living rooms to build customized home theater systems with Sharp, Panasonic, Hitachi, and other name-brand equipment.
