Unlike pets and houseguests, vehicles don’t hold grudges after getting sprayed with a hose and locked outside the house. Thank understanding cars with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get an oil change, multi-point inspection, and tire rotation at Canadian Tire's North Vancouver location (a $60 value).
The certified and experienced technicians at Canadian Tire, which has received the North Shore News Readers’ Choice Award for favourite tire store, spruce up vehicles in their service garage and full mechanical repair shop. The full gamut of auto-spiffing services takes about an hour. After switching out up to five litres of sleepy oil with alert new juice, mechanics conduct a multi-point inspection of the car's vitals. The area under the hood, batteries, belts, hoses, and filters get a once-over, and fluids such as power-steering transmission, coolant, windshield washers, and brakes receive fresh top-ups. The vehicle's lights submit to a careful inspection, and all four tires must satisfy the shop’s standards for air pressure and firmness before playing a round of musical chairs in a rotation. Finally, technicians check the underbelly of man’s best friend for any fluid leaks and check the oil pan and fuel filter. While this Groupon supplies buggies with regular engine oil, jalopies with a palate for synthetic oil, diesel, or semi-synthetic oil may sample those brews for an additional charge.
