It is important to routinely groom your car—otherwise, it will grow an unsightly beard that will tickle your cheeks when you kiss it good night. Shave off soot and give your ride a much-needed lathering with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a complete car wash and detail at Bison Automotive & Detail (an $80 value). Today's deal is valid for compact cars, sedans, and crossovers; larger vehicles may incur an additional $20 fee.
A six-time recipient of AAA's annual Top Shop Award, Bison Automotive & Detail has been caring for area streetcraft for nearly two decades. Relinquish your ride to Bison's trained cartakers, who remain undefeated in fantasy car-detailing leagues, and they'll set to work carefully scrubbing away muck in hard-to-reach places such as around wheels, behind rearview ears, and under bellies. Vacuums inhale muddy molecules, and washcloths evict the residue of spilt sodas. Within Bison’s blue brick building, terry-cloth technicians towel windows into transparency, shampoo cleanses floor mats of bipedal begriming, and 3M high-gloss paste wax shines each road tortoise's shell. The whole process can take as little as 30 minutes, far less time than it would take to capture, tame, and train a new car.
Bison Automotive's cozy, turquoise garage houses a legion of ASE–certified technicians who repair and maintain foreign and domestic rides with a professional courtesy that earned them the Best of Buffalo Award in 2010 and 2011. The skilled techs perform maintenance services such as oil changes and cooling-system flushes along with major repairs such as engine work, air-conditioning repair, and counseling for transmissions after painful breakups with the drive shaft. Detail services coax top luster from paint and interiors with hand washes, vacuum, and crevice work that banishes grime from autos’ nethermost nooks.
