Car troubles and speed bumps both come out of nowhere and slow you down, but only one can be fixed with a hijacked steamroller. Take a more well-rounded approach to car care with today's Groupon: for $39, you get three oil changes at All Tune and Lube in Fort Mill (a $104.70 value).
All Tune and Lube's ASE-certified staff of service advisors and technicians coaxes grateful purrs from car engines with meticulous oil changes. After draining outdated oil stores, staff members swap out standard filters and replenish thirsty vehicles with up to 5 quarts of Shell premium blend. A brief inspection of the brakes and beneath the hood ensures that buggies can cruise smoothly, and a chassis lubrication keeps creaky joints from interrupting five-hour road-trip rounds of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” As their carriage receives its 30-minute checkup, guests can recline in the WiFi-equipped customer lounge. Additional charges apply for automobiles that require more than 5 quarts of oil, synthetic oil, specialty filters, or friendly scratches behind their rearview mirrors as a show of trust.
Though All Tune and Lube sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
