Take a more well-rounded approach to car care with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get an automotive-maintenance package at Certi-Tate Tires & Automotive Center in Harahan (a $90 total value).

- Tire rotation (a $20 value)

The ASE-certified technicians at Certi-Tate Tires & Automotive Center, a Goodyear-affiliated dealer, lend their practiced, auto-friendly hands to vehicles of all sizes. After coughing up the last of its used oil, each car snuggles into a new filter and imbibes up to 5 quarts of fresh 5W-20 lubricant, which entertains the engine with tales of perpetual motion. A trained technician then repositions tires to ensure even tread wear and eavesdrops on the braking system, checking to see that it’s prepared for supersafe stopping. After confirming that the battery’s properly charged, the tech embarks on a five-point tour of the car’s components, topping off low-level fluids, checking the belts and hoses, lubing the fittings, and testing the wiper blades’ reflexes.
