What You'll Get
Although bicycles generally require less-frequent maintenance than cars, they limit riders’ abilities to listen to music, haul small furniture, or outrun pumas on bigger, faster bikes. Outpace pedal-powered predators with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get two standard oil changes (or one synthetic) with tire rotation and an 18-point safety inspection at Dr. Smog N Lube in Burbank (up to a $132 value).
The auto physicians at Dr. Smog N Lube save the sunny skies from unlawful emissions while keeping engines purring and tires pointed in the right direction. Just like humans, cars require transfusions of fresh oil to prevent fluid from clotting and filling the engine with scabs. An oil change from Dr. Smog N Lube evicts stale, grimy piston juices and replaces them with five quarts of fresh Texas tea, giving cars the pep and vigor needed to surf untamed freeways. Customers can choose to get two standard oil changes, which can be used on separate visits or split between friends and vehicles (a $120 value), or they can choose one high-viscosity synthetic oil change, which is preferred for race cars, cold weather starts, and visits to autobahns above the arctic circle (a $132 value). This package also includes a tire rotation, which keeps treads deep and extends tire life so that each axel frisbee can see its grandkids graduate from high school. An 18-point inspection gives each car a thorough physical, ensuring that fluids, belts, filters, wipers, and brakes are in peak form.

About Dr. Smog N Lube
