What You'll Get
To keep cars from becoming disgruntled, it's important to take them out on the town and buy them a few pints of delicious oil. Refresh and rehydrocarbonate your car with today's deal: for $30, you get a full-service oil change with tire rotation and a brake and safety inspection at Express Oil Change & Service Center (a $99.45 value). Though there are more than 160 Express locations across eight states, this Groupon is only redeemable at the Knoxville location.
During the full-service oil change, thorough car whisperers perform a 23-point change, tire rotation, and brake inspection, as well as a bumper-to-bumper safety check. A skilled hood technician will replace up to five quarts of Valvoline oil and a standard filter, good for almost all makes and models of self-propelled human conveyances. Afterward, the technician will check and restore proper fluid levels, and scan the condition of belts and hoses. The appointment also includes automotive prophylactics such as chassis lubrication; a maintenance check of the steering and suspension; and a safety inspection of brake lights, turn signals, and headlights. The brake inspection involves removing and inspecting tires and checking the lining and pads for wear and tear. Express's tire rotation then switches out the exhausted drive-train-powered tires for the fresh treads of the unpowered axle. Tire rotation extends the life of inflatable rubber wheelshoes and boosts all-around performance, which comes in handy when drag-racing an elderly neighbor.

About Express Oil Change & Service Center
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Express Oil Change & Service Center has treated cars to comprehensive yet convenient oil changes performed in 10 minutes. That tradition is continued today, in 170 shops sprinkled across 10 southern states, each staffed by a fleet of ASE-certified technicians who also submit autos to a range of maintenance and repair services, backed by warranties and environmentally conscious practices.
During the 10-minute full-service oil change, technicians don't just drain and recycle dirty fluids: they also put cars through the wringer by inspecting belts, hoses, and suspension systems, checking air filters, and sleuthing around the undercarriage for looming problems or secret piercings––all while customers wait comfortably in their car. In the service center, they call upon top equipment to rotate and balance tires, inspect brakes, and repair or replace parts, and use level 1 and level 2 computer diagnostics to correctly diagnose all manner of mechanical ailments.
