Like an Olympic sprinter headed for a wrought-iron fence, vehicle engines need precise alignment if they're going to keep running. Stay straight and true with this Groupon.
$39 for a Four-Wheel Alignment ($99 Value)
Not content with the imprecise tolerance range of a two-wheel alignment, The Wrench-it Center's ASE-certified technicians bring all four tires into a tight synchronicity of caster, camber, and toe using a computerized rack. After 20–60 minutes, cars leave the center with suspensions as straight as the day they issued from their factory, free of the kinks that come from driving over potholes, curbs, and inconveniently placed Lincoln Memorials. Fuel and tire treads both last longer as a result of the alignment.
The Wrench-it Center
Inspired to help car owners save money in the wake of an economic downturn, The Wrench-it Center's founder, Zachary Anderegg, opened the heated bays of a full-service, do-it-yourself garage lauded by the Deseret News as "Salt Lake Valley's most innovative—and hands-on—automotive repair business." Amateur mechanics can access both high-rise and low-rise lifts as well as a 200-piece toolbox, and they can also plug into the garage's Alldata automotive repair database so they don't have to ask their car to honk three times when it stops hurting. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, when visitors hit a snag, this computer system "shows drawings of just about every part and how they fit together for all makes and models." When the garage doesn't have the part for a required repair, free parts delivery can summon rare factory components and more aerodynamic bumper stickers. Owners can enlist the shop's mechanics to coach them through the repair process, and at any point they can hand the job off and enjoy the full-service treatment.
