In accordance with state laws, automobiles must undergo annual inspections to meet safety standards and ensure that no senators have been living in the trunk. Prove your car is legislator-free with today's Groupon: for $24, you get a state inspection, tire rotation, and car wash at Metro Volkswagen in Irving (a $84.99 value), valid until August 31.
The certified mechanics at Metro Volkswagen keep cars in tip-top shape so that they pass mandatory yearly state inspections and surprise dashboard white-glove tests. The 1.5-hour inspection process includes a thorough going-over that addresses the car’s safety systems, checking for properly functioning brakes, steering, lights, and heartbeat. Tires and windshields are tested for durability before the motored steed is hooked up to a computer to measure its eco-conscience, examining emissions and the number of environmental organizations on the car's speed dial. Attentive tire techs then boost tire longevity by swapping each rubber sphere's placement on the chassis to extend tread life and diminish the concentrated wear on each axle ring. The service concludes with a wash that removes dirt, grime, and the vehicle's lingering feelings of self-doubt.
