Car problems could result in losing a promotion or the love of your hamster, who's already disappointed in you. Avoid unnecessary bumps in your life's road with today's Groupon: for $79, you get an automotive-service package at Groovy Automotive and Lube (a $799 value). This massive package includes everything listed in the sidebar. The deal is good at all four Groovy Automotive locations, though oil changes are only offered at Groovy Lube locations.
Groovy Automotive's mechanics are ASE certified and committed to running honest, neighborhood-focused garages. In addition to offering car owners more than 20 ways to keep their rides roller-skating smoothly, the comprehensive service package prevents proud parents the embarrassment of having their chariot fall apart midtrip to the midnight doughnut shop.
The car spa is a member of the Better Business Bureau and takes pride in recycling everything it can, from oil filters to antifreeze to British military figurines. Stop by and watch with admiration as a kindly and skilled mechanic quenches your carburetor's thirst and liberates your windshield from an oppressive layer of bug splatter.

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.
