All Tint Window Tinting's technicians know that only a thin film separates the cool cars from the rest. That’s why they draw on 25 years of experience to meticulously apply warranty-covered Global Window Films on back, rear, and front-door windows. These advanced films block UV rays and increase privacy so that drivers stopped at red lights can lip-synch to the traffic report without being judged. The company's specialists also install custom sound systems, video screens, and alarm systems.
While a large ASE-certified logo announces their pedigree to the world, Sierra Hart Auto Center’s technicians busily service foreign and domestic vehicles beneath one of the facility’s many service bays.

Comfort and durability are locked in as the techs tweak faulty air-conditioning systems and radiators. And with the latest computer-diagnostic tools, they are able to determine vehicular health without waiting for the GPS navigator to cough. The center also offers 24-hour towing services and roadside assistance, as well as a free shuttle that escorts customers downtown and back while their cars are being serviced.
The hatchback healers at International Auto Body & Frame, a NAPA-certified auto-care center, extend autos’ working lives with an array of services.

In Polar Bear Auto Care's warehouse-size shop, ASE-certified techs slip under hoods to fix or install air-conditioning and heating systems. Those systems are nearly identical to the factory units, as many of the systems they install are made by the same manufacturers. On their walls hang hundreds of parts, with more stored onsite, including new heater cores as well as compressor mounts for car models from the years 1965 to 1999. This lets them work on all kinds of vehicles, from brand-new cars and tractors to RVs and vintage UFOs. They back up their services with a two-year or 24,000-mile warranty, which extends to electrical repairs as well as the maintenance of steering, exhaust, and brake systems.

To make maintenance as easy as possible, they also email or text reminders, recommendations, and recipes for making healthy dishes for your car at home.
