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 $45, you get two standard oil changes (or one synthetic oil change), a 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 and keep engines purring and tires well-appointed. In 20–30 minutes, an oil change from Dr. Smog N Lube evicts stale, grimy piston juices and replaces them with 5 quarts of fresh Texas tea, giving cars the pep and vigor necessary to tackle the daily commute or support the bottom of a cheerleader pyramid. Unquenched vehicles can choose between one high-viscosity synthetic oil change (a $132 value), an ideal choice for high-performance cars and cold-weather starts, or two standard oil changes (a $120 value), which can be used on separate visits or split between friends and vehicles. An 18-point inspection gives each car a thorough physical, ensuring that fluids, belts, filters, wipers, and brakes are in peak form. A healthy tire rotation evens out mismatched tire wear, extends tire life, and assures drivers that each front and back axle lives long enough to be called Grandpa Axle.
Dr. Smog N Lube
When cars leave Dr. Smog N Lube, they roll out with an engine full of new, clean oil and a clean bill of health from the state. Technicians bolster cars with regular- and synthetic-oil changes, tire rotations, and safety inspections that check 18 separate points. During state-emission inspections, the staff tests each car to make sure its smog output is below the legal limit and awards passing vehicles with a state-certified approval before sending them on their way to brag about it at the nearest gas pump.
