Unlike pets and houseguests, vehicles don’t hold grudges after getting sprayed with a hose and locked outside the house. Reward understanding cars with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get the Let's Get Acquainted package (up to a $59 value) plus a hand car wash (a $49.95 value) at LadyParts Automotive Services in Redwood City (up to a $108.95 total value).
Voted Best Car Repair shop by CityVoters in 2011, LadyParts Automotive Services pampers vehicles with hand car washes and meticulous maintenance. With the Let's Get Acquainted special, the team of automotive wizards—led by Mae de la Calzada—sloughs off old oil, replacing it with up to five slick, fresh quarts and pairing the new lube with a pristine new filter. A skilled technician then conducts a 50-point inspection, checking brakes, suspension, belts, and hoses, and topping off fluids. If needed, tire rotation keeps treads wearing evenly and maintains optimal handling and performance, and a charging-system checkup ensures that batteries stay volt filled and ready to shock engines to life. Following the car-coddling inspection, LadyParts consults with each client about any evident problems with the vehicle's safety or self-esteem, often using a virtual visual tool to clearly illustrate issues.
Envious auto exteriors can indulge in a full-service hand car wash that buffers auto bodies, locking in luster with Ultra Shine Triple Clear Coat Sealant. Windshields and tires beam like pageant-winning sharks after respective Rain-X and Wheel Bright applications. During the two-hour automotive makeover, customers can relax on pillowy couches in the comfy lounge, watching plasma television or using free WiFi to download illicit chassis images.
Though LadyParts Automotive Services sometimes features discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
LadyParts Automotive Services
Mae de la Calzada founded LadyParts Automotive Services based on a simple observation: "When a woman's car breaks down, lives break down." Recognizing the strain of being a wife, mother, professional, and friend all at once, de la Calzada saw a way to ease at least one burden women often face. This vision helped her to turn the intimidating ordeal of auto repair into an empowering experience.
