Dishing out diagnostic prognostication in a pint-sized package, the certified gearsmiths at The Small Car Shop have been keeping autos ambulatory for more than 30 years. Slickify sullen motor parts with a standard oil change, swapping out foul-mouthed crude for up to four, non-synthetic quarts of fresh-faced fluid, along with a newly-minted filter to protect it against contaminants and engine bullies. The Small Car Shop also keeps treads tidy with a tire rotation—a rubbery game of musical chairs that cuts down on undue wear and ensures gripping grooves stay stalwart as long as possible. Each service package also unleashes an exhaustive inspection litany during a rigorous 22-point check, as the jumpsuit sleuths snoop through belts and hoses, hunting for snafus among brakes, cooling systems, batteries, and the increasingly common dashboard deep fryer.
Meineke Car Care Center's experienced technicians ready cars, trucks, and SUVs for reliable starts and safe cruises with preventive maintenance and repair services. After calling one of three shops to schedule an appointment, customers can roll their rides in and let mechanics feed engines fresh motor oil, install new filters, and remind carburetors of life's inherent beauty.
Charging-system tests ensure batteries are ready to rouse engines, and cooling-system diagnostics scour systems for leaks or blockages. Roadside-assistance packages—good for 24-hour towing, jump-starts, flat-tire service, and doo-wop singing in place of broken radios—allow motorists to travel without worry, and state inspections ensure jalopies stay on the good side of the law. Drivers can hang out in vibrantly colored waiting areas, sip complimentary coffee, and use the free WiFi to find the origin of the term WiFi.

Drawing upon more than 40 years of glass-mending experience, Western Mobile Glass’s team of technicians repairs and replaces marred or broken windshields. During the 30-minute chip-repair services, the team stymies the growth of three quarter-size windshield blemishes on autos afflicted by hurtling rocks, errant debris, or puberty. Technicians stabilize glass dings before they can grow into cracks and spread across the vehicle's optical center, restoring safe visibility to the driver. Windshields with large cracks or hazardous obstructions can be swapped out for new crystalline panes ($145+ for molding), which are securely installed and fitted into the front slot to ensure that drivers aren't distracted by damage or led astray by cracks shaped like outdated road maps. This Groupon may be used in conjunction with insurance, and Western Mobile Glass accepts most major insurance companies.
