What You'll Get
Ready your ride for pending holiday road trips and holiday demolition derbies with today’s Groupon. For $15, you’ll get a full-service oil change at Everett Street Autoworks, a $31 value.
The AAA-approved auto surgeons at this locally owned and operated shop can tune up any make or model. It's open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., so you can quickly swing by before or after work to quench your carburetor’s thirst. Your Groupon includes five quarts of oil, but if your car exhibits extreme oil-thirst and drinks down more, you'll have to pay the difference using American currency.
Unlike library books, cars protest by not working when you don’t adhere to their due dates. To keep your vehicle in top shape, you should get your car’s oil changed every 3,000 miles or six months or after every seemingly coincidental run-in with that mysterious drifter. Oil changes rank up there with toilet paper and public transit fare as an unglamorous necessity; take advantage of the requisite service at a discounted rate and stop postponing the inevitable.
- I have been going to this mechanic shop for over 5 years now and feel like i live in a small town 30 years ago where your mechanic is more then a mechanic, he's your friend. – contagiouslove, Citysearch
Unpopular Buys You’ve Got to Try
Purchasing an oil change is the sort of unglamorous necessity that’s never fun to buy. Here are other things that aren’t fun to buy:
- flu shots from that sweaty street doctor
- third bowling pin from disgruntled ex-juggling partner
- a bigger belt
- replacement social studies textbooks that aren’t so outwardly xenophobic
