The automotive wunderkinds at Tuffy of Waterford use sturdy replacement parts, doses of lubricating oil, and comprehensive inspections to ensure that vehicles remain safe and ready for the road. The car coddling begins with a full-service oil change, which replaces used oil with up to five quarts of fresh, standard oil, so that engines can run smoother than an Olympic sprinter on roller skates. A tire rotation helps to alleviate the stresses of the road by preventing uneven wear and guarding tires against future rotational difficulties. A thorough safety inspection identifies potential problem areas and saves money, time, and families of muffler-dwelling elves. Tuffy checks brakes and exhaust free of charge, and although waiting time varies, drivers can expect service to take up to two hours.
From its humble beginnings as an automotive glass store in Warren, Simbol Auto Glass has mushroomed into five locations. At the pentafecta of silica shops, techs unholster Sika brand products to eradicate windshield chips, and can outright replace cracked windshields in about one hour, or seven dog-hours. To keep sunlight from fading interiors, Simbol tints windows with Smoke film, which can reduce 4%–68% of transmitted light. Technicians also enhance cars with remote starters, alarms, and satellite radio.
Amid the pastoral beauty of their award-winning landscape, the certified mechanics at Quality Lube Oil Change & Auto Center perform auto checkups in one of six convenient drive-thru bays. Batteries bolster winter defenses like the North Pole's anti-ballistic missile batteries as techs clean and seal corroded terminals, check battery conditions, and top off charges. A radiator winterization thwarts bursting hoses with a 60% radiator fluid exchange performed by inserting vacuums into fluid caps and replacing slurped liquids with quality Dexcool or extended life fluids.
