What You'll Get
Despite their inability to speak, cars communicate signs of distress through warning lights, strange noises, and a refusal to return Coldplay CDs. Perk up a melancholy ride with today's Groupon: for $15, you get an oil change and tire rotation at Auto-Lab (a $49.14 value).
The ASE-certified technicians at Auto-Lab, a Napa AutoCare Center, equip cars for their next 3,000-mile stretch with API-approved motor oils. During the oil change, mechanics coax damaged fluids from the car, swap them for up to 5 quarts of conventional oil, and install a new filter to protect the engine from harmful contaminants and youthful apathy. Technicians then rotate tires in order to distribute tread wear equally, prolong road life, and stabilize balance among concrete massagers. Concluding the service, mechanics administer a 33-point inspection of the vehicle, eavesdropping on essential operations and systematic functions to assess performance, confirm safety status, and mediate ideological debates between the bumper and the bumper sticker.
Though Auto-Lab sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
