According to Newton's Fourth Law, the more you drive your car, the more debris it attracts—repelling aerodynamics, the opposite gender, and gravity itself. Smooth your horseless carriage's exterior with today's deal: for $39, you get "The Wizard Touch" car-wash package at Genie Car Wash (an $89.95 value). A full list of services included in this package can be found in the sidebar to the right. This Groupon can be used for one of the three Austin locations: Burnet Road, Lamar Boulevard, and William Cannon Drive.
Each Wizard Touch car-wash package at Genie Car Wash includes a thorough exterior wash that scrubs the bugs off the grill, gets the grime off the wheels and wheel wells, and rubs the muck off the underside of the bumper. The interior cleaning squeegies away peanut-butter smears on the window, wipes off peanut butter on the dashboard, vacuums up globs of peanut butter embedded in the carpet, and spoons old peanut butter from the steering column to make a peanut-butter sandwich. Then Genie's detail devotees slather your ride with a thick coat of wax until it gleams brighter than burning barrels of peanut butter.
The Austin Chronicle's yearly Best of Austin readers poll has dubbed Genie Car Wash the best car wash in the city more than 12 times in the last 20 years. See what all the sparkling buzz is about and reward your vehicle for putting up with the stresses of harsh weather, dirty footprints, and having fast food absent-mindedly shoved into its cassette deck.
We featured Genie Car Wash earlier this year, and Grouponers give it an average rating of 3.5. Though Yelpers and six Citysearchers give Genie Car Wash's Lamar Boulevard location only two stars, the Austin Chronicle has awarded it Best Car Wash more than 12 times:
- Let the Genie do his magic on your automobile. Fill 'er up, and get all the services that used to be standard practice at filling stations in the past. The washes are great, but it's the interior and exterior detailing that makes your car want to cuddle up to you and say, "Thank you." – Austin Chronicle
Genie Car Washes
At Genie Car Washes, nearly a half-century of business success lends an air of assured experience to locations recently upgraded with $500,000 in renovations. A large staff efficiently shuttles vehicles through a wash tunnel cushioned with foam pads designed to leave exteriors unscratched. Patrons can choose between one of six multistep car washes, or cherry-pick à la carte services such as leather conditioning, engine cleaning, and headlight restoration. Detailing packages assemble extra touches that subject disheveled cars to white-glove once-overs including trunk cleanings and carpet steam cleanings.
