Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
The state-licensed technicians at Berkeley Smog Test Only Center have conducted more than 50,000 smog checks all in the name of California's air quality. They welcome cars of all makes, models, and ages, gauging the emissions of convertibles and mobile homes alike. Their expertise enables them to complete most tests in approximately 20 minutes—though vehicles with complex parts may require a bit longer—and they cut down on long lines and exaggerated sighs with online booking. Clients can submit their rides for any reason, whether they are keeping abreast of biennial certification requirements or transferring their car to a new owner who could never love it like they did. Regardless of motive, the staff preserves a cheery and professional ambiance.
For more than 30 years, Precision has helped vehicles of all sorts run smoothly with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services. Professionally trained mechanics whet engine appetites with a premium oil change with up to 5 quarts of oil, and then rotate tires to allow for an even distribution of wear and tear while on the road. The automotive pampering lasts about an hour, during which mechanics dispose of all waste and crumbs from half-eaten parking tickets stuck in the engine. Technicians conclude the ride renovation with a brake inspection to ensure effective stopping post-drive-away. After motor coaches have returned to their youthful, showroom condition, drivers can register for online service reminders, never again relying on their car's unreliable telepathy abilities.
