Bewildered mechanics souped up the earliest horseless carriages by filling them with premium oats and lovingly grooming their spoilers. Spur your steed toward the horizon with today's Groupon: for $39, you get an auto-upkeep package at Downtown Automotive Center (a $116.85 total value). The package includes the following:
- An oil change with filter and lube (a $32.95 value)
- A tire rotation (a $20 value)
- Wiper blades (a $25.90 value)
- A battery-charging system test (a $27 value)
- A complimentary 59-point inspection
- A car wash and vacuum (an $11 value)
Downtown Automotive Center's ASE-certified master technicians prep cars for the trials of winter with a preventative package that tunes internal components and ensures safety. During the two-hour service, mechanics drain used fluids, pour in up to 5 quarts of standard motor oil, and install a filter that weeds out dust particles, contaminants, and hacker codes. Next they equalize tire wear with a rotation and install droplet-defying wiper blades. After administering a battery-charging system test to validate voltage flow, the car tenders take a 59-point tour around the vehicle, aiming inquisitive glances at essential components in order to properly assess the cars' safety and performance capabilities. Once autos have been inspected and adjusted, technicians sanitize the exterior with a cleansing body wash, and scour insides with an interior vacuum service that swallows up crumbs, wrappers, and fossilized action figures.
