With more than 150 years of combined experience, the ASE-certified technicians at Community Automotive Repair have earned the shop a nod for Best Auto Repair in Grand Rapids magazine’s 2011 readers’ poll. Up to 5 quarts of conventional oil (synthetic available for additional fee) replace dirty predecessors during the oil change, after which techs reposition tires in order to equalize tread wear and remove fitness-crazed hamsters from wheel wells. During the maintenance inspection, specialists scout out potential problems in the car’s systems and components and confirm the vehicle’s safety and performance. An attentive hand wash punctuates the service with soap and water massaged against the shell, letting cars cruise out feeling renewed, invigorated, and as clean as a hitchhiker’s driving record. Customers are asked to schedule an appointment in advance, and during the service, free shuttles will trek drivers anywhere within a 10-mile radius of the shop.
