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).
Though just one of its many aviation and aircraft services, Capital City Jet Center's flight training catapults customers through yonder blue with one hour of premium flight instruction in a Cessna 172 Skyhawk. After getting a 30-minute lesson from a certified flight instructor, customers will take to the skies for a full hour’s worth of climbing through clouds, cruising at lofty altitudes, and barrel-rolling away from hostile TIE fighters. The flight training package comes with a personal log book to record every intense detail of your first session and/or any short story ideas that occur to you mid-flight.
Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corp., Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto accessory and detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations in 30 countries. Performing everything from window tinting and professional detailing to electronics installation, Ziebart's experienced staff cares for cars with high-end products, including seasonal paint protectant and the company’s renowned rust inhibitors. To protect cars inside and out, Ziebart technicians also install accouterments such as alarm systems to thwart thieves and sunroofs to thwart unflattering film negatives from processing correctly (services may vary by location).

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.
