Rim Jobs and Semi Broken are Car Mechanic Stores in the Saints Row series.

Ui act question

For Customization info, see Vehicle Customization

OverviewEdit

These Stores can be used for storing and retrieving vehicles, as well as repairing and Customizing Vehicles. Car Mechanics should not be confused with Chop Shop, which is an unrelated activity.

These stores are open 24/7, and the garage door opens at any time, but when entering on foot the door must be kicked open at night. No alarm sounds for kicking the door in, and unlike other stores, no Notoriety is given for entering via the back door.

Having Police or Gang notoriety prevents vehicles from being modified, but vehicles can be repaired at any time.

Saints RowEdit

In Saints Row, the only Car Mechanic is Rim Jobs, although others are referenced in a radio ad.

In Saints Row, the sign above the Rim Jobs garage door lists the following services:

  • All Mechanical Repairs
  • Collision Repair
  • Tuning and Modification
  • Power Accessories
  • Tires/Wheels
  • Exhaust Systems

Saints Row 2Edit

In Saints Row 2, Semi Broken allows for Vehicle Customization of large vehicles which cannot fit in Rim Jobs.

All land vehicles can be customized here, with an exception of some unique unlockable vehicles. The garage list at Semi Broken is the same as the list at all cribs.

There are no extra options available for vehicles which can be modified at Rim Jobs, and everything is the same price at both stores.

Saints Row: The ThirdEdit

In Saints Row: The Third, vehicles may be customized directly from the Garage menu at Cribs, as well as at Rim Jobs locations. There is no Large Vehicle Garage, but all vehicles may be stored at Crib Garages.

Saints Row IVEdit

As in Saints Row: The Third, vehicles may be customized directly from the Garage menu at Gateways, as well as at Rim Jobs locations.

LocationsEdit

Some stores are in the same location in Saints Row and Saints Row 2, but the name of the neighborhood has changed. Unless otherwise noted, each store exists in both games.

There is only one Semi Broken store in Saints Row 2, located in the Copperton neighborhood of the Truck Yard District.

Large VehiclesEdit

In Saints Row, Vehicles defined as "Large" cannot be modified or stored in a Garage. In Saints Row 2, Large Vehicles can be modified at Semi Broken, and do not appear in the garage list at Rim Jobs, but can be retrieved from garages at Cribs.

While some large vehicles, such as the DonoVan, do have a full range of Body Mods available, most of these large vehicles have very few customization options, limited to Performance, Wheels and Paints.

Some vehicles are classed as "Large".

  • In Saints Row, they can not be stored at all, and cannot be modified.
  • In Saints Row 2 they can be stored, but can only be modified at Semi Broken.
  • In Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row IV and they can be stored and modified anywhere, but are still classed as Large.

TriviaEdit

  • Rim Job is a double entendre, referring to both wheel rims on a car and a sexual act.
  • In Saints Row, after entering the store on foot but leaving without retrieving a car, the mechanic says "Maybe you will have better luck at a dealer", hinting that cars can be bought from Foreign Power.
  • In Saints Row 2, each Rim Jobs store can be bought for $5,000 after owning the hood it is in.
  • Upon entry with a weapon equipped, the clerk sometimes says "No weapons in Rusty's Needle" implying that the same clerk was used in both stores.
  • When entering Semi Broken, The Protagonist always kick the door when opening it. The reason behind this is unknown.
  • Semi Broken has two garage doors. After customization, the vehicle always faces the rear door, which can be confusing because Rim Jobs always faces vehicles towards the front.
  • When owning Semi Broken, there is a 20% discount instead of the standard 10%. After completing all the Chop Shop lists, there is a 75% discount on all vehicles customizations, which combined makes a 95% discount.
  • A radio advert in Saints Row: The Third says "Rim Jobs: It only sounds weird until you try it!"
  • In Saints Row: The Third when playing in language other than English, during customizing a non-customizable vehicle, the names of colours are always in English.
  • There is a sign that says "ALL VEHICLE SUBJECT TO SEARCH AND SEIZURE, GUARDS CARRY FULLY AUTOMATIC SUB-MACHINE-GUNS. PLEASE SMILE!"[game?]
  • Samson's Garage featured in "...To Kingdom Come" resembles a Rim Jobs both inside and out.
