The vehicle virtuosos at Bast Tire and Auto Service replenish cars' oil reserves, change filters, and conduct full inspections to ensure smooth cement sailing. In one of the facility's seven full-service bays, technicians treating buggies to an oil change install a new FRAM filter and replace aging sludge with fresh Chevron 5W-30 oil. The service also includes an overall vehicular inspection, during which auto artisans give a thorough look-see to lighting, front ends, and wipers and analyze tires to assess pressure, stability, and lingering mommy issues. Steering undergoes evaluation to ensure precise driving, and workers test suspension to establish maximum clown capacity. Car owners can occupy themselves with free coffee, television, and Internet access while their four-wheeled friends receive treatment.
DM Service Centre’s owner, Dave Vollmer, helms a team of skilled technicians who continue to exude the same blend of courtesy and professionalism that has enabled the all-purpose auto shop to subsist on referrals since 1986. The certified mechanics regularly doctor vehicles with oil changes, transmission repairs, and full tune-ups that accommodate the plugs and points of older cars as well as the complex computers of late-model vehicles. Extending their famous quality of care to the environment, the team operates an accredited Drive Clean centre that gets automobiles in shape to pass Ontario emissions regulations. When they aren’t busy keeping vehicles on the road, technicians can be found supporting the local sports teams they sponsor or garage-breaking feral street cars.

As guests drop off their four-wheeled wards into the capable hands of a professional detailer, they often pass the time shopping at nearby Conestoga Mall.
