Get your chassis classy in time for rolled-down-window weather with the full-service treatment, including up to five quarts of Valvoline oil, a new Valvoline oil filter, and vehicle lubrication of chassis components (if required).

A dedicated staff and comfy service lounge greet customers at Pinkerton Chevrolet's two locations. Both new and gently used GM vehicles such as Buicks, Chevrolets, and Cadillacs grace the grounds, beckoning customers to test-drive them to the nearest deserted go-kart racetrack. Inside, patrons can sip on premium coffee, catch a favorite show on the flat-screen TV, or surf the wireless Internet while their car is spruced up.
Tim and Tara Wall's body shop started as a tent inside of a barn, but their business soon outgrew the space and relocated to a modern facility with 12 work bays. Today, technicians partner with insurance companies to complete pinstriping, oil-change, and headlight-restoration services that come with complimentary online estimates. Though not included in this Groupon, for clients whose other car is a boat, TNT can also repair damaged fiberglass and gel coats, and patch up frayed Jolly Roger flags.
Power House Auto's car custodians fuel their auto-washing efforts with gentle hand scrubbings and generous dollops of Meguiar's wax. During the service, which can last a couple hours, human-powered cloths work soapy solutions into vehicles' skin, gently wiping away dirt and washing any rashes caused by accidental exposure to diesel. Technicians evoke glistening smiles from tires and wheels with Armor All applications, then coat the car frame in Meguiar's wax, which dutifully shields it from contaminants and smudges while enhancing the shine. Car owners are welcome to relax in Power House Auto's waiting lounge and listen as their cars sing happily in the bath.
Car Lovers Car Wash's locations feature touchless car-wash systems, which douse dirty cars in soap and specially formulated wax. Each automatic wash tunnel is equipped with double foaming cleaners that scrub away grime and prepare vehicles for a glossy finish.
Guided through the mechanical morass by two ASE-certified master technicians, Techne Mechanical services domestic and foreign vehicles from compact to colossal. While the vehicle's vital fluids are being transfused, the technicians play a game of musical tires, rotating them around the car until the music stops and the odd tire out gets relegated to the trunk. The car's brakes are also inspected to ensure they can continue in their deceleration duties. Alternately, Techne Mechanical offers a Class-A state inspection to certify the car is road-worthy, environmentally sensitive, and not actually a set of trash-can lids bolted onto a refrigerator.
