If Dorothy had never changed the Tin Man's oil, the Wizard probably would have just thrown away his spare heart. Show your car you have a heart with today's Groupon for one oil change, a 25-point inspection, and a tire rotation at Cassidy Tire & Service, with 15 participating auto hospital locations—four in Chicago and 11 in the suburbs. Choose one of two oil options:
- For $30, you get one standard oil change with a tire rotation and a 25-point inspection (a $107.99 value).
- For $65, you get one synthetic oil change with a tire rotation and a 25-point inspection (a $154.99 value).
Cassidy's oil vampires drain your vehicle of its blackened, used engineblood before Cassidy's oil mummy replaces it with brand-new engine embalming, preserving the precious internal mechanisms with a coating of high-powered car lube. For premium vehicles and luxury autos, opt for the synthetic oil, which can form a better barrier against heat, friction, and the snide remarks of xenophobic cars. The tire rotation invites your rubber steeds to a game of musical axles, extending tire lifetimes, reducing excess wear and tear, and improving all-around driving performance, while the 25-point inspection makes sure your alignment and brakes are up to performing in the first place.
A reliable car—like a good dog—eventually becomes a de facto member of the family. While that doesn’t make it normal to call your car “Daddy,” it is a good reason to take your car to a family business where the employees treat you like one of their own. Cassidy Tire & Service will help make sure that your ride runs smoothly through an entire year of hectic commutes, family vacations, and “gah-zoline” raids from marauding gangs of mutant Australians.
Valid for up to five quarts of oil; additional oil will incur extra costs ($3 per quart of normal oil, $11.50 per quart of synthetic).
- As a female, I'm always wary about going to a new auto shop or garage, but this place really put me at ease and I'll definitely be returning (although hopefully not too soon haha). I just stopped in this morning to have them look at a flat, and I was in and out in about 30 minutes. – Teri D., Western Avenue location, Yelp
- Friendly service? Yes. Affordable pricing? Totally. Helpful and never made you felt talked down to? Holler!! – Rob L., Diversey location
Cassidy Tire & Service
Almost a century ago, it was 1914 and William J. Cassidy was gazing out from his livery stable to watch the newfangled automobiles rumble past on Roosevelt Road. He knew then that he’d been right to expand from shoeing horses to also servicing tires. Never having children, Will took his 16-year-old nephew, Hugh, under his wing in the venture. When Will retired, Hugh took over and kept the company afloat even during the bleakest days of the Depression and WWII. Hugh’s six sons all followed in the family footsteps, opening additional locations in the suburbs, and then their children opened even more.
Today, those descendants operate 15 Cassidy Tire & Service locations throughout the city and suburbs. The Cassidy experts keep vehicles running smoothly as they grow old by practicing a full range of other auto services, from rotating tires to changing oil and flushing transmissions.
