What You'll Get
Cars are vain and sensitive; they care about how they look and want their owners to feel proud driving them, even if it's through an inconveniently placed fruit stand. Today's Groupon treats your steel steed to something special. For $16, you get a full-service oil change at Groovy Automotive and Lube (up to a $36.60 value, depending on the location). Get your groovies lubed at any of four locations.
Along with replacing up to five quarts of oil with delicious Valvoline, Groovy Automotive's ASE-certified technicians will also change your filter and perform a total fluid and tire-pressure check. As icing on the motor-oil cake, they'll also vacuum your interior, wash your windshields, and sing your car back to sleep if it has a bad dream. Synthetic and olive oils cost extra.
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 a mysterious stranger whose voice is pure country gold. Groovy Automotive's loving lubers want to be a part of your combustion chariot's life, and their preemptive breakdown prevention will help you avoid awkward silences in the cab of a tow truck. Knock off one of the nagging chores you’ve been meaning to get around to for ages with today's Groupon to Groovy Automotive.

- I recently went in to Groovy Automotive and had the greatest experience. I dropped of my car at 7:15AM and they were able to give me a ride to work...I was called at 2:00PM and my car was ready to go. The Groovy Van then came and picked me up at work and took me back to their shop...My car runs great and I am very thankful to have such a wonderful shop that will take care of my car repairs. – Stevens P., Insider Pages
- By far, the best service I've had. I will never go anywhere else in Austin for car work. Go to Groovy if you dont want to be ripped off and lied to. – buggurl007, Citysearch
- I rarely recommend businesses [sic] however I would send my mom to Groovy. Keep up the good work! – Insurance512, Citysearch

About Groovy Automotive and Lube
Channeling Austin's spirit of community, honesty, and music through the doors of its service garage, the two mechanics who founded Groovy Automotive stand by their services with a one-year or 12,000-mile guarantee that is honored at a nationwide network of certified shops. At all four locations, Automotive Service Excellence–certified technicians leap into action to remedy ill vehicles with repairs or foster peak road prowess with upkeep and maintenance. The care they show cars also extends to the community. They donate to organizations such as the Helping Hand Home for Children, and recycle oil, tires, and coolant to relieve the environment of toxins and prevent disgruntled car-part protests outside junkyards. As an additional gesture of goodwill, Groovy Automotive's courtesy-car service lets clients keep on trucking while their own rides are down for the count.
