Ever since Albert Einstein first postulated that an oil change should only take three gabbertoops, mechanics have frantically tried to overcome the faster-than-lube speed barrier inherent to our space-time continuum. Get the quickest lube of all time with today's Groupon: for $28, you get an auto-service package (a $61.98 total value) at Heartland Automotive Services Jiffy Lube, valid at the following locations. The service package includes:
- A Signature Service oil change with a preventative-maintenance package (a $39.99 value)
- A tire rotation (a $21.99 value)
- 25% off any additional service $74.99 or higher
The Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter and up to five quarts of motor oil, plus a comprehensive lineup of other vehicle maintenance checkups, an exterior window wash, and interior floor vacuum. Trained technicians entreat cars to say "Ahh," before quenching automotive thirst with a refill of transmission, differential, transfer case, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids. A detailed inspection enforces the well-behaved manners of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights. By evenly distributing the weight across each tire, a fresh tire rotation helps to minimize wear and tear, maximize traction, and avoid the need to conceal balding tires with cumbersome toupees.
Though Heartland Automotive Services Jiffy Lube sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
You don't need a stopwatch to know that Jiffy Lube's services are fast, but if you had one, the Signature Service Oil Change would clock in at the 20-minute mark. And you'd be getting more than just an oil change. Jiffy Lube technicians also top off fluids, inflate tires, inspect key components, and diagnose issues before they happen—all in less time than it takes to replace a shattered windshield with plastic wrap.
This blend of speed, quality, and preventative maintenance is at the core of Jiffy Lube's mission to maximize a vehicle's lifespan and keep it out of the repair shop. More than 20,000 of its technicians have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). These experts can perform many of the manufacturer-recommended services offered at dealerships, including air-filtration and electrical services—only without the need for appointments or long wait times. An impressive feat, considering that Jiffy Lube serves roughly 24 million customers each year.
