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.
Serra Toyota's staff has spent the last two decades selling and servicing roadsters of all makes and models.

Customers enjoy a 12-month warranty on all parts and labor, along with creature comforts such as complimentary breakfast and lunch and a waiting lounge with two flat-screen TVs. Perks such as Free Manicure Mondays and complimentary pickup and drop-off services accommodate drivers who wish to wait onsite or at home as technicians perform a simple brake check, or use their full inventory of rotors, calipers, and pads to build a bumper-clinging robot that slices down approaching Yield signs.
