At Tuffy's, motor-vehicle caregivers spruce up patrons' horseless carriages and prepare them for a new season of dutiful service. After installing a new oil filter, auto artisans remove the old sludgy glop clogging the car's arterial system and replace it with up to five quarts of Valvoline 5W-30 or 5W-20 conventional motor oil (a $31.99 value; diesel or synthetic oil costs extra). The staff will also rotate tires to prepare four-wheeled wonders for safe gliding (a $12 value) and make sure air-conditioning systems function properly to bring riders to the brink of coolness faster than Fonzie’s leather jacket ($9.99). Finally, a pair of fresh wiper blades (up to 22")—grown locally by organic-blade farmers—supplants worn-out window-rubbers ($22) and a specialist conducts an extensive 41-point maintenance inspection.
Gregg Young Chevrolet's team of GM-trained technicians employs authentic GM parts to keep vehicles running smoothly. The certified service specialists start off each oil change by swapping out soiled motor oil with up to five quarts of engine formula freshly milked from the udders of a mechanical bull. An air filter check helps passengers breathe clean air, and a thorough inspection of fluid levels, belts, and hoses helps guard against future problems. During the one-hour service, mechanics also lubricate door and hood hinges, steering components, suspension systems, and drivelines so rides glide as smoothly as waterslides made of velvet.
The dedicated auto technicians in Baxter's service department carefully tend to drivers' finest four-wheel suits during a 30-minute checkup. After engine magicians sneak out the old oil through an underside trap door, they'll subtly replace it with up to 7 quarts of fresh conventional brew before treating vehicles to a complimentary inspection, checking fluid levels, searching for malfunctioning parts, and combing the undercarriage for spare keys to the garage. This Groupon can be used on all makes and models, and synthetic oil is available for an additional fee.

West Omaha Auto Service’s trained technicians tend to doting drivers' testy vehicles with quality maintenance services. Oil changers drain the used crude from an engine’s insides and fill the empty space with up to 5 fresh quarts of standard oil, while a new filter helps keep pesky particles away from moving motor parts. The team also tops off windshield-wiper and battery fluid before giving landships a final once-over with a general inspection. Customers can use this pair of oil changes for two different vehicles or over two visits for the same beloved buggy, readying rides for pending weekend road trips and weekend demolition derbies.
