Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigour with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to U.S. EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
Hollywood’s most famous residents get hand-pampered until their skin shines, a trick to looking good they may have picked up the local Vineland Car Wash. Here, technicians use soap and elbow grease to scrub signs of wear from vehicle exteriors, following up with a coat of wax that keeps the cars looking like new. A typical scrub down ends with the hanging of an air freshener from the rearview mirror, a parting gift akin to a breath mint after a dinner of soap.
At Universal Service Station, friendly, knowledgeable technicians keep foreign and domestic vehicles of all types running smoothly and safely with diagnostic services and tune-ups as well as major overhauls and repairs. Drivers leave their cars, vans, trucks, and motorcycles in the care of skilled mechanics, who protect moving parts from wear with oil changes and help motorists avoid crashing through giant ice sculptures that are constantly being carried across the city’s streets with brake repair and replacement.
When cars leave Dr. Smog N Lube, they roll out with an engine full of new, clean oil and a clean bill of health from the state. Technicians bolster cars with regular- and synthetic-oil changes, tire rotations, and safety inspections that check 18 separate points. During state-emission inspections, the staff tests each car to make sure its smog output is below the legal limit and awards passing vehicles with a state-certified approval before sending them on their way to brag about it at the nearest gas pump.
