For more than half a century, Suntrup Automotive Group has been a thriving hub for the exchange and maintenance of man's best mechanical friend. Oil changes, tire rotations, safety inspections, and training-wheel adjustments are only a few of the many services that the factory-trained technicians offer to cars, SUVs, and trucks. While their jalopies are on the mend, motorists can visit the waiting area to test-drive computer workstations, complimentary WiFi, TVs, and vending machines. All locations also house lots filled with new and preowned vehicles from companies including Nissan, BMW, Ford, and GMC, each of them eagerly waiting for the chance to call your garage its home.
For six decades, Lou Fusz’s savvy mechanicals have revived ailing autos with fresh fluids, tire care, and safety inspections that keep all components running at the same speed. Technicians rehydrate thirsty engines with a full dose of oil and lube (a $30 value). A new filter inoculates cars against oil-borne contaminants and other vehicular viruses, while windshields wipe their brows in relief with newly installed blades (a $34 value). After a team of trusty wheel-wranglers rotates tires to balance tread wear (a $15 value), a thorough safety check scrutinizes two dozen essential elements for signs of trouble, such as cracked casings or failed emissions tests stuffed into the undercarriage.
