Black-and-white checkerboard floors and faux traffic lights greet every customer that walks into United Auto's lobby. Photos of antique cars hover above a black couch, which is flanked by a candy machine and a shelf overflowing with children's toys. Beyond this sleek lobby, ASE-certified technicians toil away with tools and more than 25 years of know-how. They welcome cars for services as simple as an oil change or as complicated as engine repair and also perform state-mandated inspections to ensure cars are safe for the road and not churning out excess pollution or trash talk. On the other side of the garage, an auto parts store stocks all the essentials—from spark plugs to air fresheners and floss for the grill—for motorists who enjoy working on their own cars.
At Champion Elite Detailing, certified and licensed staff members purge automobiles during interior and exterior detailing services. They're well versed in handling luxury vehicles, and go about their jobs with tools including paint sealant, horsehair brushes, and instruments that help eliminate unwanted window tinting, odor, and pet hair.
The engine aficionados at A & H Motorsport rescue road-weary wagons from engine burps and tow-truck run-ins with high-quality service and check-ups. The oil change can replenish thirsty receptacles with up to five quarts of 5/30 grade motor oil and replace foggy filters with a genuine manufacturers' oil filter. The 30–45 minute service also includes an inspection of all engine hoses, axle boots, tire pressure, and an inspection to ensure that the exterior lights project electromagnetic waves visible to the human eye. Mechanics also will load-test your roadster's battery and clean all terminals if necessary. Enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, and Internet use while you wait, or interview other proud car-parents and set up a play date for your ardent auto.

Just then, Blondie Mondell came out of the bowling alley with a cotton-candy-pink sweater and an armload full of school homework. She was also late for singing practice. She gave him a once over, like the trouble he was.
For more than a quarter-century, Sears Auto Center-Old Forge Motor Cars has been keeping rides cruising smoothly with maintenance services and fresh brand-name tires. An online tire-size finder lets drivers peruse available rubbery soles based on tire size or their vehicles' year, make, and model; customers can also search for brands such as BFGoodrich, Cooper, Michelin, and Yokohama. Ailing cars can roll into the shop and let experienced technicians diagnose and treat their issues, from loose belts and hoses to squeaky brakes or wheels that become clumsily misaligned when cute convertibles whiz by. Sears Auto Center-Old Forge Motor Cars is open seven days a week and also harbors used vehicles available for purchase.
Though their trade requires an expert knowledge of automobiles and highly precise technical skill, perhaps the most important talent the technicians of Automotive Sound And Protection bring to the table is imagination. They don't feel restricted to their printed list of services, and always encourage their clients to inquire about any kind of project they might have dreamed up. In 35 years of service, they've worked on most every kind of aftermarket upgrade, be it trunk-installed speakers, custom-painted rims, or high-end security systems.
They get so excited about their projects that the team can often be found working into the late hours, tweaking and perfecting each element of their install. The staff backs all of their work with a 100% guarantee for the life of the vehicle, and, as authorized dealers, also honor manufacturer warranties for all of the equipment brands with which they work. They work on vehicles that range form Hondas to Ferraris.
