The team of ASE-certified technicians at Millevoi's Tire & Service Center keeps horseless chariots stopping and going smoothly with a bevy of auto-care services. Cars delivered into the hands of the AAA-approved auto-repair center can swap out their soiled motor oil for up to 5 quarts of standard engine juice freshly squeezed from mechanical grapefruits. During the same visit, the staff can also rotate tires, lubricate the chassis, install new oil filters, and run through a 30-point safety inspection. An air-conditioning system check ensures the car's air vents are exhaling heartily, and a new pair of wiper blades helps to maintain windshield transparency while cars drive through rain or crash slip 'n' slide tournaments. Scheduled maintenance packages and computerized wheel alignments impart peace of mind, which the auto shop augments with a 36-month/36,000-mile warranty on parts and labor. The facility's waiting lounge features coffee, TV, and newspapers to entertain owners as they wait for their vehicles to roll out of the shop all patched up and ready to drive into the immediate future.
Cars roll away from the checkered exterior of East Gate Car Wash & Lube Center renewed by the shop’s wash, detailing, and maintenance services. Washes rinse away recently acquired roadway gunk with paint-safe soaps, while applications of sealant and rust protector guard cars from long-term damage. To restore vehicles' health without feeding them an apple every day, technicians swap old oil for new in the facility’s garage, the same place they perform routine maintenance on tires, tweak engines systems, and regulate fluids. An onsite lounge placates waiting patrons with cups of complimentary coffee and a convenience store stocked with snacks, drinks, cards, and car products.
The experienced technicians at Foam Factory begin each car wash with a high-pressure rinse and a healthy dose of Active Foam solution before gently washing each vehicle by hand with microfiber mittens. Once the vehicle has been thoroughly rinsed, they dry and polish paint jobs by hand, protecting their hard work against the elements with premium wax and sealant products. In addition to washing exteriors, Foam Factory's techs also perform meticulous interior details with carpet steaming and vent cleaning and restore confidence to extra-tarnished vehicles with à la carte services such as tree-sap removal and headlight restoration. While technicians work, car owners can lounge on the outdoor patio, sip coffee in the upstairs waiting room, or continue their mystical quest in the downstairs dungeon.
When the family-owned Weikel's Auto Repair opened in 1994, its ASE-certified technicians inspected cars in a cozy three-bay shop. As demand for their expertise grew, so did their need for space, machinery, and equipment. These days, in a roomier shop, ASE-certified master technician Steve Weikel and his team administer extensive services for all automotive systems and car makes, including hybrids. The crew aligns wheels and tires, ensures electrical wiring functions properly, and replaces brake pads and hoses, keeping any flowers growing on the driver's side properly watered. Weikel's crew also performs state safety and emissions inspections, outfits vehicles with Michelin or Bridgestone tires, and assists broken-down cars with 24/7 towing.
Behind Excel Motors' rows of shiny preowned vehicles, mechanics tinker under their iconic ASE-certification shoulder patches, their hands sowing the hard work necessary to harvest peak mileage from engines of all sorts. Quarts of high-quality oil await their chance to flow alongside thirsty car metals, and bays securely hoist autos into the air so techs can service them, inspect various parts for safety, or rotate tires. Meanwhile, customers can peruse the lots for a new domestic or imported car and take a look at each vehicle's Carfax report to see its prior life, accident history, and ability to snuggle with weather tarps.
