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 $18, you get a mobile standard oil change and inspection from Car TLC, servicing areas within a 30-mile radius of downtown Louisville (a $37.99 value).
Car TLC's ASE-certified technicians travel to homes, offices, and parking spaces to bolster engines with clean motor oils and prep them for further driving expeditions during one-hour service sessions. Working from a fully equipped mobile van, the techs place an oversize drainage mat below the car to prevent leaks from oil pans or car’s built-in milk-shake dispensers. Engines then guzzle up to 5 quarts of clean standard oil (synthetic available at an additional cost), and techs exchange their clogged filter for a clean dirt-catching replacement. Techs also restore the contents of below-level brake, antifreeze, washer, transmission, and power-steering reservoirs; adjust tire pressure; and confirm that headlights haven’t replaced bulbs with performance-enhancing miniature suns. The eco-conscious crew at Car TLC recycles all used oils and discarded filters.
