The ASE-certified technicians at Merlin 200,000 Mile Shop encourage cars to run smoothly for as long as possible with services designed to push autos past 100,000 miles of high-performance travel.

Their Drive to 200,000 program even details a comprehensive service plan to get cars to that odometer milestone with regular mandatory and recommended maintenance plans.
