Though sending your vehicle on a blind date with a giant squid is an easy way to jump-start your felt-tipped-pen company, it remains a fruitless formula for obtaining fresh oil. This holiday, give your vehicle new life without making it spring for lobster by nabbing today's Groupon: for $19, you get one Signature Service oil-change at Jiffy Lube (up to a $41.99 value). This Groupon is valid at 19 Miami/Fort Lauderdale–area locations.
The Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change handles more than just the replacement of vehicles' engine juices with up to 5 quarts of conventional Pennzoil motor oil. Each 10- to 15-minute service comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter, plus a comprehensive lineup of other vehicle-maintenance checkups, an exterior window wash, and interior floor vacuum. Trained technicians entreat cars to say "Ahh" before quenching automotive thirst with top offs of transmission, differential, transfer-case, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids. A detailed inspection enforces the well-behaved manners of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belt, wiper blades, and exterior lights.
Though Jiffy Lube sometimes features a discounted price, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, brakes, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
