Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter; checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights. To merge mechanical harmony with aesthetic vibrancy, the friendly, certified technicians at Jiffy Lube also wipe and clean the outside windows and vacuum the floors inside in search of rogue nickels, all of which are returned to their proper owner, The Ghost of Abraham Lincoln.

Family owned and operated since 1916, this collection of car dealerships can skillfully service all horseless carriages. The veins of Duval Dealers' certified technicians run thick with motor oil and hydraulic fluid, giving them an innate understanding of a car's aches and pains. During the standard oil and filter change (a $19.99–$32.99 value), they'll install a new oil filter, refill up to five quarts of motor oil, and give the auto a multipoint inspection to make sure all the I's are crossed and the T's are exed. This Groupon does not cover additional or synthetic oil.
A family-owned-and-operated business with strong community ties, CarbuX Car Wash freshens up rides with environment-friendly methods. The $15 buX wash, the most thorough of the shop's services, commences with a tenacious wash from gentle soft-foam equipment. After a vigorous rinse from the 2,000-gallon reverse osmosis system and the water-eradicating blast of a 115-high-pressure drier, buggies emerge spot-free. A dutiful application of RefleX protective film Polyfoam and conditioner allows paint jobs to shine through rain, fog, or newt shower, while Black Magic tire shine acquaints wheels with their dapper side. Drivers then select a scented air freshener (new car, cherry, or vanilla) and can finish with a trip to a free vacuum station to evict hitchhiking dust mites. CarbuX recycles 80% of its wash water and all of the processes are benign to all vehicle finishes and graphics.
