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 $35, you get a signature auto-service package at Carolina Mobile Auto Service in Winston-Salem (an $87.45 value). The package includes the following:
- An oil change
- A tire rotation
- A winter check, which includes the following:
- An electrical-system performance check
- A coolant-system check
- A wiper-blades check
- A tire-pressure check
- A heater-operation check
Carolina Mobile Auto Service’s ASE-certified staff keeps cars safely accelerating through the winter with seasonal maintenance packages. During the oil change, mechanics drain and dispose of damaged oils before replacing them with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional lubricants, which grease the metals, lessen friction, and improve pistons’ moves at the engine’s weekly dance mixer. A tire rotation crisscrosses treads to balance wear, smooth out rides, and extend tire life.
Winter checks kick off with mechanics verifying electrical fluidity by testing the alternator output and battery capacity and searching terminals for signs of corrosion. A coolant check ensures optimal temperatures as mechanics check the antifreeze freezing point, and windshield-wiper tests reconfirm blades’ sharpness, reflexes, and animosity toward rain. To conclude the service, techs install a cabin air filter on the heater (if applicable) and make sure tires are properly inflated and strong enough to traverse icy patches or reject date requests from attractive icy patches.
