Pistons and shafts overheat and seize up unless protected by a slick, shiny coating of oil, just like classical Greco-Roman wrestlers. Keep your engine parts from throttling each other with today's Groupon: for $35, you get three oil changes, a 60-point inspection, and a battery check (up to a $105 value) at The Pit Stop Auto Repair.
The Pit Stop’s sincere, certified, and skillful automotive mavens repair and maintain motors of every sort. Like cleaning an exotic aquarium, oil changes will remove old, grimy liquid and replace it with up to five quarts of fluid that's fresh, free flowing, and an ideal environment for cultivating tropical fish. Next, an expert wheel-whisperer will inspect each auto to ensure everything is in working order, asking cars personal questions about the state of their seals and plugs, before finally checking batteries to secure worry-free startups. The entire process takes around 30 minutes, and anxious car parents can wait out their separation anxiety in an immaculate waiting area, replete with sumptuous leather couches and sizable flat-screen televisions.
A reliable car—like a good dog—eventually becomes a de facto member of the family. While that doesn’t make it normal to call your car “Daddy,” it is a good reason to take your car to a family-owned establishment where the employees treat you like one of their own. The Pit Stop will help make sure that your ride runs smoothly through an entire year of hectic commutes, family vacations, and gah-zoline raids from marauding gangs of mutant Australians.

The Pit Stop Auto Repair
Since 1985, the family-owned Pit Stop Auto Repair shop has upheld its reputation as an honest and convenient maintenance depot for domestic and international cars. Even when the Union Tribune came in undercover with an exaggerated problem, the mechanics of Pit Stop correctly diagnosed the simple issue—a disconnected spark plug—and did not inflate the issue or the cost to fix it. All of the ASE-certified mechanics are poised to tackle jobs from routine upkeep to extensive repairs, such as burping the carburetor. This facility is also a state-licensed smog check station and is certified in brake and lamp repairs.
