Much like electronic ukulele amplifiers and amphibian a cappella choirs, cars lack the ability to perform optimally when in need of a tune-up. Tweak Tin Lizzies to perfection with today's Groupon: for $45 you get an oil change (a $30 value), tire rotation (a $27 value), comprehensive maintenance inspection (a $30 value), standard wiper blades (up to a $40 value), and a hand wash (a $10 value) at Community Automotive Repair.
AAA-approved Community Automotive Repair has been revving engines since 1975, garnering a nod for "Best Auto Repair" from Grand Rapids Magazine readers in 2010. During a winter service package, qualified grease monkeys service engines with up to 5 quarts of fresh conventional oil, though an additional charge is required for synthetic oil and European models. After coddling coupes with a tire rotation and comprehensive maintenance inspection, ignition improvers finish the service by replacing wiper blades. Vans and sedans leave the lot hand-washed and shiny, ready to brave winter elements and obliterate low vehicular self-esteem.
The shop's master technicians, certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, tend to domestic, imported, or immaculately conceived auto bodies. On-the-go patrons who live within 10 miles can catch a ride on the shop's free shuttle, resting assured of their hotrod's protection within one of eight garage bays. Low-cost rental cars are also available to further-flung customers.
