Coddling steel beasts since 1932, Grismer Auto Service Centers staffs ASE-certified technicians who prolong vehicular life. The efficient half-hour lubricant swap squirts up to 5 quarts of fresh 5W-30 oil into engine recesses after the spent fluid is drained away to a fitting retirement home near the Earth’s iron core, where it was born. Once a new filter accepts its sacred duty, a Grismer technician tops off windshield-washer fluid, barks at tire-pressure-gauge numbers until they rise or sink to their factory-ordained marks, and performs a 72-point inspection to guard against future failings or premature exhaustion. The mechanic will also rotate the tires, a step that helps to maintain even tire wear and optimum handling. Groupon holders can avail themselves of a 10% discount on any additional services coveted during the course of the visitation.

The technicians at Premier Auto Spa lavish the metal exteriors of autos with dozens of soft and gentle swipes during basic and full-service washes. Hands run along paint, sudsing frames free of dirt using a mild, pH-balanced formula that protects and bolsters cars’ pre-existing clear coat before rinsing exteriors and gently toweling them dry. The techs complement these washes with detailing services and cater to overlooked areas of the vehicle by cleaning headlights or using rotary brushes to swab rims. Premier Auto Spa also welcomes vehicles typically unaccustomed to the car wash, including motorcycles, tractors, and street-legal pogo sticks.
The ASE-certified mechanics at AAA Car Care Plus revive winter-worn wagons with an array of preventative-care services, available for most domestic makes and models. The spring fuel-efficiency checkup, which lasts 90 minutes or less, begins with a lube and oil change, including a new oil filter and up to five quarts of conventional motor oil (a $21.64 value; synthetic oils are available for an additional fee). Next, motor maestros conduct a 39-point visual inspection (a $22.67 value), followed by an electronic battery starting and charging test (a $44.39 value). An auto doctor will diagnose brake-pad health via visual brake inspection (a $44.39 value), and administer a tire rotation to ensure safe tire pressure, tread depth, and sense of equlibrioception (an $18 value).
