What You'll Get
Cars need regular oil changes to keep them running in top form, just as winning racehorses need periodic blood transfusions to keep the drive for victory coursing through their veins. Treat your chariot like a champ with today's Groupon: for $25, you get three 3,000-mile auto-upkeep packages, which include an oil and filter change, tire rotation (on request), and vehicle maintenance inspection at King Bear Auto Service Center of Lindenhurst (a $74.85 value).
The ASE–certified technicians at King Bear Auto Service Center of Lindenhurst top off fluids and change oil to tweak street schooners until they sail smoothly. The specialist starts the revitalizing package by spoon-feeding the auto with up to five quarts of 10W-30 oil, replacing its filter, and shielding it from being stuck with outdated political bumper stickers. The automotive medics then carefully top off all fluids and lubricate the rusty joints, hinges, and suspension. Next, your car opens wide for an in-depth 27-point inspection, where the belts, hoses, and cooling system spread their arms for a functionality test. Tires are checked for safety, and the exhaust system relaxes with a Swedish massage. Technicians then test interior and exterior lights for consistency, and a tire rotation ensures even wear among the four wheels. With a three-pass punch card, drivers can trick travel-weary cars into three checkups by persuading them they're going to the parking lot to mock speed bumps. In addition to any waiting time, each service takes approximately two hours.
