Polished vehicles echo the glamour and status of famous landmarks, such as Versailles's mirrored hallways and the distorted funhouse at the center of the Parthenon. Let your car reflect positively on you with today's Groupon: for $19, you get for three Waterworks car washes at The Arbor Car Wash and Lube Center (a $38.85 value). Choose between the following locations in Austin: 10401 Jollyville Road and 3120 Guadalupe Street.
Filthy cars sail through Arbor Car Wash's Waterworks washes to emerge with spotless exteriors and dust-free cabs. Sudsy flippers fling bubbles at soiled auto bodies in the mechanical wash station, releasing them into the sunshine with a glossy sheen to bounce stray beams in all directions. Eager hands reach for hoods and windows to towel away water droplets, and power-hungry vacuums amass a portfolio of snacks, sticks, and overlooked receipts discarded on dashboards, doorjambs, ashtrays, and carpets. Dogs are welcomed at both facilities to teach exuberant SUVs how to shake water from their coats, while owners retire indoors to enjoy each location's flat-screen televisions, bowls of popcorn, and complimentary WiFi.
The Arbor Car Wash
At The Arbor Car Wash, skilled detailing crews and lube technicians meet drivers’ every vehicular need and state inspections, from basic washes to detailing to oil changes. Automatic washers restore squeaky-clean shine to exteriors, and pure elbow grease vacuums carpets and waxes exteriors. In the service center, technicians swap out oil with fresh, premium Castrol oil. Throughout each wash or service job, customers can retreat inside for a handful of popcorn or slink into a comfy chair to whittle a new steering wheel. The Arbor Car Wash also looks out for its community, donating time and money to a list of organizations that includes the American Cancer Society, the Austin Children’s Center, and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
