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 this Groupon: for $40, you get an oil-change package at Jiffy Lube (a $86.98 total value), valid at 84 locations. The preventive-maintenance package includes the following:
- A Signature Service oil change with a preventive-maintenance package (a $41.99 value)
- A new set of windshield wiper blades (a $30 value)
- An Aquapel windshield treatment (a $14.99 value)
- 25% off any additional service over $74.99<p>
The Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter and up to 5 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, and exterior lights. Weathered windshield wipers are swapped out for a streak-free Rainy Day set, and an application of Aquapel windshield treatment causes rainwater to roll from sight like a shy hedgehog at a talent show.
Though 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 Saran-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.
