Each day presents a new challenge to Mathew Levin. He could be installing new brake pads, diagnosing a mysterious engine rattle, or fixing faulty wiring. The combination of mechanical prowess and electronic expertise is what drew Mathew to auto repair in the first place?that and a lifelong love of cars.
Growing up in a small town taught Mathew the value of a spotless reputation, and he couldn't stand to see garages treat customers dishonestly or watch dealership salesmen delivery faulty advice. After becoming an ASE-certified Master mechanic, Mathew founded Integrity Automotive Service on the principle of honesty. Mathew supervises his team of two mechanics, though he takes it upon himself to deal with every customer directly. He'll frequently offer to test drive vehicles for free to make an accurate diagnosis and make sure he explains exactly why each repair is needed before completing it. Mathew's thoughtful, honest approach to car repair has ensured him a steady stream of repeat customers and cars that wag their exhaust pipes when they see him.
PDQ Car Wash has been cleaning cars and trucks since 1960. The Ultimate Exterior wash restores a car's youthful shimmer with a double pre-soap and a full exterior wash, and the tricolor and clear-coat sealers ensure a lasting shine. An under-chassis flush removes any dirt or gremlins before car pedicurists clean the wheels. The Manager's Special wash begins with an ashtray emptying, dashboard wiping, and thorough interior vacuuming to remove taco crumbs and dinosaur bones. The attention shifts to the auto's exterior as washers set up a pulley-platform system, helping themselves reach every window, apply tricolor conditioner, and de-ice the locks in the winter or after driving into a meat locker. After an exterior wash and under-chassis flush, warm air and towels dry the car as a Victorian shoe shiner polishes its wheels.
