At A-Plus Auto Service Center's 9,000-square-foot facility, ASE-certified techs twist off lug nuts to install new brake pads and pinpoint under-hood problems with the latest diagnostic technology. Their expertise extends to repair services such as overhauling engines as well as routine maintenance such as draining dirty oil and running smog tests that aren't multiple-choice. With connections to dealerships as well as access to parts from factories across the globe, they usually have all parts needed to complete the job on-hand. Those jobs, as well as most of the parts, are covered by their nationwide 24-month or 24,000-mile warranty, which includes roadside assistance.
With America's Best Car Care Plan, ASE-certified technicians keep autos running smoothly by injecting car insides with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional oil (upgrades to synthetic require additional charges) and performing a host of auto-maintenance services. Brake inspections and adjustments grant drivers the peace of mind that cars are safe and equipped for inclement weather and duck-crossing signs that come out of nowhere. Two tire rotations ensure automotive equilibrium can find long-lasting balance and tire grooves wear evenly.
