AAMCO Transmissions and Auto Repair's locally owned outposts dot cities and towns from coast to coast. Since AAMCO opened 50 years ago, its transmission masters have extended their range of services to the realm of total car care, offering cars with faulty brakes, dirty oil, or broken air conditioners some one-on-one time with a handy mechanic. This commitment to full auto health also underlines AAMCO's promise that every vehicle receiving service is privy to a free multipoint inspection, during which mechanics explore beneath the hood, under the car, and in the GPS navigator's psyche to ensure safe operations and optimal performance.
The Ultimate Wash starts with a quick high-pressure pre-spray that loosens dust's death grip on your road-ship's hull, followed by a thorough wheel cleaning and an underbody blast that scrubs the car's seldom-seen tummy. While you're playing an intense game of racquetball inside your car, Classy Chassis will buff the car's exterior and reveal its natural shine with a tri-color polish process. As a final nicety before the rinse and dry, the car wash will apply a 30-day sealant with rain repel—the next best thing to attaching an RV-sized umbrella to the roof.
Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.

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.
