Like roller skates, cars need regular maintenance to keep their parts from seizing up, their wheels from falling off, and their sense of direction from being thrown off by disco balls. Keep your streetcraft on the straight and narrow with today's Groupon to Edmund Hardaway's Affordable Automotive, which has locations in McKinney and Little Elm. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get an oil change and tire rotation (a $55 value).
- For $59, you get a wheel alignment, a computer spin balance, and a tire rotation (a $124 value).
The auto physicians at Edmund Hardaway's Affordable Automotive pamper domestic and imported vehicles with a combination of services to keep them cruising comfortably. Treating your roadrunner to an oil change allows it to slurp up to six quarts of Valvoline 5w30 motor oil and shed its uncouth sediments and bilious humors. The procedure includes a 20-point inspection of each vehicle performed by Edmund's meticulous mechanics. Oil changes can be completed in as little as 20 minutes, roughly equivalent to the gestation period of the average manual transmission.
Like a bicycle orthodontist, computerized wheel alignment straightens wheels to keep them rolling in the right direction, and computer spin balance calms their quivering. Both of today's options include tire rotation, during which wheels rotate in a counterclockwise circle until each road donut has a new home, as well as a brake inspection (a service Edmund's provides free of charge) to ensure stomping on the brake pedal makes the car stop rather than giggle. While you wait for your four-wheeled ward to finish its visit, luxuriate in Edmund's comfortable waiting area, where you can watch satellite TV, read magazines, or use the free WiFi and available computer to write your old mechanic a break-up email.
