Vander Hamm Tire Center's team of mechanical tinkerers recalibrates under-hood humors during their standard oil changes. Pull horseless carriages into one of Vander Hamm’s eight service bays for up to five quarts of fresh fluids, as new lubricant forms a protective barrier against engine breakdown, clogging sludge, and sparkplug-stealing raccoons. Vander Hamm's car custodians also replace your worn-out filters and ferry your old oil safely to its eternal resting place. Once engines are sufficiently slicked, technicians check tire pressure and snoop through a 12-point inspection, scrutinizing vehicle surfaces in search of potential safety issues and hidden messages in license-plate numbers. Each vehicular sprucing lasts 45 minutes to an hour, giving drivers down time to practice mind-soothing relaxation techniques or stress-inducing cougar juggling.
Since 1966, Swift Chrysler Jeep Dodge Kia's certified technicians have lifted the spirits of downtrodden foreign and domestic vehicles and their owners, all the while selling a massive inventory of used and new cars. In an attempt to offer an incredibly customer-friendly shopping experience, this massive inventory is listed online in an easily browsable format. Visitors of the dealership can also stop in to kick the tires, daydream about how many marshmallows they can stuff into each single car, and check out the dealership’s amenities. Shuttle service, rental vehicles, and a complementary loaner-bicycle program ensure no customer gets stranded, while a comfortable lobby with coffee, snacks, and wireless Internet allow customers to relax while tikes let loose in a children's playroom.
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. They deliver performance-enhancing boosts such as oil changes and full-scale repairs to keep cars in tiptop shape. 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.
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.
The Scoot Shop's array of personal people movers set rambles rolling, and its full-service garage keeps each scooter in roadworthy condition. Zip around avenues at up to 60 miles per hour on the Buddy International 150cc, which gobbles up pavement at the behest of its air-cooled 150cc 4-stroke engine. Driving an economic 90 miles per gallon, the International saves money for other types of fuel, freeing up dollars for revivifying iced coffee. An automatic transmission lets riders focus on the road ahead without the distraction of manual shifting, and the front disc brake combines with the rear drum break for precision stopping prowess. The International arrives clothed in one of three stunning color schemes: the Saint-Tropez steals a slice of sky with three shades of blue, the Pamplona’s burgundy and cream harkens back to Old World refinement, and the Italia’s green and cream comes ready to traverse a tree-lined street or camouflage itself in the middle of a key lime pie. Each new scooter comes with a two-year warranty and two years of roadside assistance.
John Ellis Garage's eponymous founder, his son Dave, and their successor Bob Pugh put down the foundation for the garage's 80-year reputation of repairing automobiles with a focus on customer service and honest work.

Now under the helm of seven talented mechanics, the full-service garage fills its spacious bays with repair jobs, including transmission flushes, carburetor service, and antenna-flag ironing. The staff also keeps automobiles street legal with certified smog checks, performed by the garage's two full-time smog technicians.
